Reggae Rajahs celebrate their 8th Anniversary at Summer House Café, New Delhi on Wednesday 22nd February 2017. The full crew will be playing together, including DJ MoCity, a founding member who has been out of the country for the last few years.
The past year has been monumental for the Rajahs. Apart from big festival performances at Sula Fest, VH1 Supersonic and Taalbelia, they have been curating their own events all over the country. Working closely with venues in the major Indian cities, they have been promoting the artists and sounds that they love.
In January 2017, Reggae Rajahs successfully organised the second edition of Goa Reggae Sunsplash, an international reggae festival which saw over 1200 people come together from all parts of the world. The festival included 3 music areas, live bands, food stalls and a flea market.
As part of the team that built 10,000 Lions Sound System (a hand built Jamaican style sound system), the Rajahs have been also been pushing Roots Reggae and Dub throughout the country. They have travelled with the soundsystem to the first All India Dub Conference in Pune, to playing at the beach parties in Goa over New Years and then most recently to VH1 Supersonic where 10,000 Lions Sound System had its own stage.
After a whirlwind year, which has seen them rise to great heights, Reggae Rajahs are back in their hometown of New Delhi after almost a year!
When: TODAY. Wednesday 22nd February 2017, 9 PM -12:30 AM
Where: Summer House, Aurobindo Market, New Delhi
Reggae Rajahs have opened for Snoop Dogg and Major Lazer and have also shared the stage with a number of established international artists. They have toured across Europe, South America and South East Asia in recent years. They host an International Reggae Festival every year called Goa Reggae Sunsplash and are also a key part of the hand built 10,000 Lions Sound System, one of two Jamaican style speaker systems in India.
To make their 8th Anniversary even more spectacular they dropped a video for “Dancing Mood” yesterday, which is the lead single off their 2015 Beach Party EP. The video was shot by Saurabh Monga in Goa, edited by Zorawar Shukla.
