The Strides, Beach Hotel, Sunday
This dynamic ten-piece brings some of Sydney’s best new talent in afrobeat, reggae, jazz and hip-hop joining forces and collaborating together to deliver a captivating urban roots release.
With a calling card of powerfully melodic horns, infectious bass lines, and the easy musings of reggae master Ras Roni, from Barbados via London, and Fijian MC LTL Gzeus (Little Jesus), The Strides faithfully channel the sounds of Bob and Damien Marley, Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Barrington Levy and Mos Def.
With recent performances at the Bellingen Global Carnival and Island Vibe, as well as supporting afrobeat legend Tony Allen, The Strides are quickly becoming the talk around town.
Get down and check these guys out at the Beach Hotel on Sunday arvo.
