The Abyssinians are one of the most respected groups in the history of reggae. Their song “Satta Massaganna” is known as the reggae national anthem and tunes like “Y Mas Gan” and “Declaration of Rights” are true all time classics too. Their haunting 3 part harmony vocal style is a living link to the golden age of roots reggae, and lead singer Bernard Collins has one of the most evocative voices of any reggae vocalists past or present. Last time they came to the Dub Club they sounded amazing, don’t miss this chance to hear some true roots and culture.
Opening the night is LA’s own Mexico68! They are a 12 piece afrobeat band based out of Los Angeles’ Eastside area and heavily influenced by the poly-rhythmic sounds of Nigerian recording artist, Fela Kuti and Africa 70. The band juxtaposes Chicano funk with the body-moving and elucidating vibes of Fela.
The resident Echodelic DJs will be holding it down on the turntables as well, spinning the best in reggae music on strictly vinyl.
