Southern African reggae and world music fans have something to celebrate in May, as the internationally acclaimed French group Dub inc will arrive for a series of exciting live performances at some of the region’s most loved festival events.

The epitome of the successful European Reggae band, Dub inc’s hundreds of live performance over the past ten years have seen them play to over a million fans in 31 countries and 5 continents.

 

Over the past 20 years, the band has perfected their unique blend of Reggae, Dancehall, Kabyl and World Music. With the two distinct and yet complimentary voices of Bouchkour and Komlan’s fronting the band, the band lives and breathes its message of the ethical intermixing of styles and people.

Whether they write in French, English or Kabyl, a Berber language spoken by the Kabyle people in the north and northeast of Algeria, the band conveys a universal message through their unique sense of melody combined with truthful lyrics.

 

Born to immigrant parents, the group, like many other Reggae greats, is both political and yet optimistic. Their hopeful vision of unity and tolerance will resonate strongly with local Reggae fans, while their sound, infused with electronic vibrations, some hints to dubstep, and a few hip hop references is infectiously memorable.

 

More than just a band, Dub inc, is a movement fronted by tens of thousands of activist fans. With a grass-roots DIY ethic, Dub inc engages directly with their audiences and fans. With three performances in the region, Southern African music fans can now become part of this movement.

 

The group will be performing at the following events across South Africa and Swaziland at the end of May 2018.
