ASILI DUB’s heavily fused Reggae Dub sound is highly influenced by Taarab, Dubstep and a whole lot of Kenyan Sound.
The band’s upcoming debut EP 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.
Having met in a Peace Festival in Mogadishu back in 2013, Kombo & Jahm came back to Nairobi to work with DJ/ Producer Dread Steppa, on what soon became the heaviest rooted Dub band in the region.
The band has featured different artists throughout its existence. 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. ASILI DUB has since perform at DOA DOA International Music Festival 2017 (Kampala), Nyege Nyege International Music Festival 2017, Mungo’s HiFi East African Tour, headlined Zanzibar Reggae Festival 2018, InI Live Sessions 2019, Alliance Francaise Nairobi Showcase 2019, Irie Nairobi – Positivity Concert 2019, Roots & Culture Night Nairobi 2020.
