03/06/2018 - The Bombie presented by Coalcliff SLSC, Coalcliff
2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
A Bombie favourite and local legend Nick Garbett returns with the fun loving Reggae blasters The Strides.
The Strides are a new force for Reggae music. Fronted by roots man Ras Roni from Barbados via London, Fijian MC LTL GZeus and Sierra Leonian ragga powerhouse Blacker C, The Strides deliver a musical experience that is as powerfully explosive as it is authentic. With three acclaimed albums already under their belt, a European label signing, festival appearances across the country and having graced the stage with the likes of Third World, Julian Marley, Tony Allen and Groundation, The Strides’ music faithfully builds on the foundations of classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, dub beats and reggae-pop. The Strides have forged a truly global sound melding a diversity of cultures and instrumentation under the one universal consciousness.
Joining the Strides will be GODTET , the brainchild and live band project of Sydney legend Godriguez, known for producing Sampa the Great’s The Great Mixtape and his raucous live shows. His album – which has sold out on vinyl – is something you need to get your hands on if you haven’t already.
It’s rare you come across music that genuinely makes you stop in your tracks. It’s rare in a world where we’re bombarded by media every waking moment, as it begs you to stop what you’re doing and listen.
