It is situated in the Caribbean Sea, about 90 mi south of Cuba. Its indigenous Arawakan-speaking Taíno inhabitants named the island Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water", or the "Land of Springs". Once a Spanish possession known as Santiago, in 1655 it became an English, and later a British, colony, known as "Jamaica". It achieved full independence in 1962. Jamaica is the birthplace of Reggae, one of the world’s most popular music styles.
