ASILI DUB BIO
ASILI DUB’s upcoming self-titled debut album is a conscious blend between uplifting & bluesy lyrics, melodic African, Taarab and Indian inspired guitar riffs, heavy steppin bass lines, Rockers meets Dubstep beats, & a touch of Pink Floyd inspired psychedelic exploration.
Having met in a Peace Festival in Mogadishu back in 2013, Kombo & Jahm came back to Nairobi to work with DJ/ Producer Dread Steppa, on what soon became the heaviest rooted Dub band in East Africa.
ASILI DUB has featured different artists throughout the years. In early 2017, the band teamed up with Walter Mwangombe on keys, Morris Kivisi on drums, and Ras Lyon Hart on lead vocals to work on the band’s first ever release. ASILI DUB has since performed at DOA DOA International Music Festival 2017 (Kampala), Nyege Nyege International Music Festival 2017, opened for Mungo’s HiFi during their East African Tour and headline Zanzibar Reggae Festival 2018.
The band's heavily fused Live Reggae Dub sound is highly influenced by acts like Dub Dynasty, Black Uhuru, King Alpha, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Jah Shaka, & Salmonella Dub to name a few.
