The Diwali Riddim is a popular dancehall riddim that came to prominence in 2002. The riddim is credited to Jamaican producer Steven "Lenky" Marsden, and appeared on several international hit songs by Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, Lumidee, Brick & Lace and Wayne Wonder.

The beat is characterized by syncopated clapping, and was given the name diwali for its Bollywood dance music influence. The riddim has been featured in U.S. television commercials via Sean Paul's song "Get Busy".
