Get ready for a night on the dance floor as The Strides perform two solid sets of reggae, ska, dub and afrobeat originals along with a slew of covered classics from The Skatalites to Fela Kuti! This night is an opportunity to catch The Strides in a rare instrumental format featuring some of Australia’s most exciting improvisers.
The Strides deliver a musical experience that is as powerfully explosive as it is authentic. With three acclaimed albums already under their belt, a European label signing, festival appearances across the country and having graced the stage with the likes of Julian Marley, Tony Allen, Third World and Groundation, The Strides’ music faithfully builds on the foundations of classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, dub beats and reggae-pop.
