ABOUT THE BAND:
With the freedom to serve up vivid new flavours as well as reinventing the familiar classics, Jah Tung & The Natural Order enchant and entice the audience from the door to the dance floor, with their addictive and animated orchestrations, hypnotic grooves and an overall vivacious atmosphere.
International recording and performing artist Jah Tung, originating from Sydney, has recently joined the ranks of Melbourne's vibrant music scene, quickly gaining momentum in Naarm, as the lyrical souljah now has the strength of a full musical artillery behind his profound messages and colourful melodies.
Joining forces with some of Melbourne's most renowned and skillful reggae musicians, bassy and producer JahWise, keys phenomenon Riccardo Barbarulo and percussion extraodinaire Carlos Meza, as well as various other resident musicians of Melbourne, Jah Tung is honoured and excited to present The Natural Order, an unstoppable force bringing you the most electrifying riddims with the most intricate, dynamic and illustrious arrangements.
Previously sharing stages on tours and festival appearances, the accomplished musicians kept in touch despite the distance between cities, building a solid foundation for serious future works as soon as that gap was closed by destiny. Now, living in the same city, their collective mission has been anointed as they unite and continue their journey in ordained oneness.
"People are beginning to awaken to the flaws of the western system and to question the structure of the "ordinary" or "average" lifestyle. This is evident in the growing underground reggae, hip hop and dancehall communities, all of whom are striving to forge their own way, by virtue of our failing leaders.
An honest reflection of our journey and the struggles we face as spiritual beings with physical limitations and expectations.
Profound lyrics and meditative sonic frequencies to feed your soul.”
