The Strides “Reclmation” Official Launch Party!
THE LIFE OF TRUE ROOTS MUSIC LIVES ON WITH THE STRIDES FORTHCOMING SECOND ALBUM “RECLAMATION”.
This dynamic ten-piece brings some of Sydney’s best new talent in Afrobeat, Reggae, jazz and hip-hop joining forces and collaborating together to deliver a captivating Urban Roots release.
With a calling card of powerfully melodic horns, infectious bass lines, and the easy musings of Reggae master Ras Roni, from Barbados via London, and Fijian MC LTL Gzeus (Little Jesus), The Strides faithfully channel the sounds of Bob and Damien Marley, Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Barrington Levy and Mos Def.
With the release of their self-titled debut album in 2009, The Strides have taken their magnetic stage presence, dubbed out beats, and hypnotic rhythms to the Bellingen Global Carnival, the 2010 Darling Harbour Jazz & Blues Festival and Peats Ridge where they have established themselves as festival favourites.
2010 sees them continue to build on their impressive touring reputation having repeatedly sold out shows from Sydney to Byron Bay and back.
The Strides follow up album “Reclamation” is sure to have you losing yourself this summer in the blissed-out grooves, pulsing World beats and smooth dub sounds of The Strides.
