Described as ‘contenders for the UK’s best reggae act’, Brighton-based collective Samsara 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 stylistic conventions. The result has been called ‘a startlingly original take on the Jamaican sound’.
Samsara juggle sounds and influences from around the world and throughout the ages to produce a sound that is instantly memorable and unique. Spinning Latin from Reggae, Ska from folk, and Gypsy and Jazz from Pop and Blues.
The band has shared stages with the likes of the Wailers, Toots and the Maytals, Max Romeo, Black Uhuru, The Skints and Groundation to name but a few. With a tightly woven live show which combines intricate musicianship with raw energy and infectious positivity, Samsara have become firm favourites at venues and festivals across the land.
