Riddim is the Jamaican Patois pronunciation of the English word "rhythm," but in reggae, dancehall, calypso, soca, and reggaeton parlance it refers to the instrumental accompaniment to a song.
These genres consist of the riddim plus the "voicing" (vocal part) sung by the deejay.
The resulting song structure is distinctive in many ways. A given riddim, if popular, may be used in dozens or even hundreds of songs, not only in recordings, but also in live performances.
