The Strides


Fronted by legendary roots man Ras Roni from Barbados via London, Fijian LTL GZeus and Sierra Leonean Blaka C, 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. Their 2018 Boomerang performances will have the Juke Joint bouncing.

The Strides have forged a truly global sound melding a diversity of cultures and instrumentation under the one universal consciousness.
