Mento music had its beginnings in Jamaica in the 19th century, and was uniquely Jamaican fusion of African and European musical traditions. In mento's recorded history pre-history, from the 1920s through the 1940s, a number of Jamaican songs were put to wax by Caribbean jazz artists. In dance band mento, home-made instruments were replaced by professional saxes and clarinets and basses. Often, banjo was left behind in favor of electric guitar. mento-reggae, as elements of both Jamaican music were combined. Some middle period mento LPs were quite bland, such as "Yellow Bird" by the promisingly named Jamaica Duke and the Mento Swingers, and the aforementioned Wrigglers LP. The great majority of the recordings from the middle period were of old mento songs, with sundry other covers.

Mento is a style of Jamaican folk music that predates and has greatly influenced ska and reggae music. It is a fusion of African rhythmic elements and European elements, which reached his peak popularity in the 1940s and 1950s. Mento typically features acoustic instruments, such as acoustic guitar, banjo, hand drums, and the rhumba box - a large mbira in the shape of a box that can be sat on while played. The rhumba box carries the bass part of the music.

It also includes music and songs from orthodox religion. Revivalism is found chiefly in the parishes of Kingston, St. Andrew, St. Catherine, St. Elizabeth and St. Ann. Popular revival songs in Jamaica include O let the power fall on me my Lord and River Maid. Mento is the original popular music form in Jamaica, developing during the plantation period and holding sway up to the 1950s. It was born out of the fusion of African and British influences. Its performance mode, rhythmic impulse, as well as its call and response type of singing is African in origin, while the scale patterns, harmonic concepts, and verse and chorus song types are British. This consisted primarily of very fast paced movements such as shuttle and split which consisted of moving the hands upwards, downwards, side to side, backwards and forward while lifting the legs bent at the knees alternately.
Mento is a 19th century musical form that has its roots in both Europe and Africa. The mento is a blend of quadrille and Afro-Jamaican rhythms, and was used to entertain slave masters. A typical band of five musicians performing on fiddle or violin, banjo, fife, shakers and a vocalist who doubled on guitar or one of the other instruments mentioned. Mento bands are sometimes required to supply the music for floor shows acts like limbo dancers and stilt walkers, and usually relieve pop music bands in tourist resorts. Many, especially in rural areas, also perform in communities at ‘wakes’ and ‘nine-nights’ for the bereaved family and friends of their recently deceased loved ones.
