Asili Dub is Kenya’s Pioneer Reggae-Dub band, which started as a collabo between Kombo Chokwe (Afro-Simba band), Jahm (Filipino world-reggae musician)and DJ/ Producer Dread Steppa.
The band’s heavily fused Live Reggae Dub sound is highly influenced by Taarab, Rockers, Dubstep and East African sounds and inspired by acts like Dub Dynasty, Black Uhuru, King Alpha, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Jah Shaka, & Salmonella Dub to name a few.
In early 2017, the band teamed up with Walter Mwangombe on keys, Morris Kivisi on drums, and Ras Lyon Hart on lead vocals to work on the band’s first ever release. The band’s upcoming self-titled debut album is a conscious blend between uplifting & bluesy lyrics, melodic African, Taarab and Indian inspired guitar riffs, heavy steppin bass lines, Rockers meets Dubstep beats, & a touch of Pink Floyd inspired psychedelic exploration.
