“These guys are magic!”

ASILI DUB is a heavily fused Live Reggae Dub band from Kenya. The band is highly influenced by acts like Dub Dynasty, Black Uhuru, King Alpha, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Jah Shaka, & Salmonella Dub to name a few.
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 regions heaviest rooted Dub band.
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, and has opened for Mungo’s HiFi during their East African Tour.
ASILI DUB’s upcoming self-titled debut album is a conscious blend between uplifting & bluesy lyrics, melodic African and Indian inspired guitar riffs, heavy steppin bass lines, Rockers meets Dubstep beats, & a touch of Pink Floyd inspired psychedelic exploration.
