As “one of the South’s most exciting reggae acts”, Brighton-based Samsara Collective create an open minded and fresh take on the roots tradition. Their music pays tribute to the original innovators of the genre while refusing to be bound by any stylistic conventions. The result is a fresh and hook-laden take on the style, morphing the reggae sound into something wholly new and exciting, and has been described as “a startlingly new angle on the Jamaican sound”.
The band has been booked to play alongside reggae legends such as The Wailers, Toots & the Maytals, Groundation, The Black Uhuru, Culture, Horace Andy, Third World, Aswad, Misty In Roots and The Skatalites – and performed at countless festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, and Secret Garden Party.
With a tightly woven live show which combines intricate musicianship & improvisation with raw energy and infectious positivity, Samsara Collective have established themselves as “one of the best reggae bands in the UK at the moment.”
