Dub Club is proud to present one of the best loved roots reggae groups worldwide, Israel Vibration. Mention the name Israel Vibration in reggae music circles and watch the warmth of recognition and appreciation of anyone who has seen or heard this very special group of singers. The positive vibrations emanating from the music of Israel Vibration have been spellbinding audiences, critics and DJs for over two decades. This group of singers casts a harmonious musical spell, weaving traditional roots reggae with a mesmerizing sound and deeply spiritual message.
Israel Vibration members Cecil Spence (Skelly) and Lascelle Bulgin (Wiss) were born in Jamaica, West Indies. Each is a victim of Poliomyelitis (Polio). They met as children in the Mona Rehabilitation Center, into which they were placed because of their families’ limited resources and their needs for specialized medical care. They learned early on the necessity for developing survival skills, and although polio is an undeniably crippling and debilitating disease, the youths never let their physically challenging situation supercede their willpower and their creative abilities. They found strength in the faith of Rastafari through the guidance of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, and began composing and singing songs which expressed their spiritual beliefs.
They have released an amazing catalog of roots anthems and we are beyond excited to have them at the Dub Club finally!
They will be backed by Roots Radics featuring one of the top bass players ever to come out of Jamaica ( or Earth for that matter) Mr. Flabba Holt. Heavier than lead, dreader than dread!
Jamaiel Shabaka is a master musician and master drummer. his music is dynamic, authentic, and a music of positive healing vibrations. Shabaka has released three albums including The Land of the Rising Sun, recorded by Sugar Minnot in Jamaica. Shabaka’s African, Jamaican and Caribbean roots and travels come out in his music as he plays traditional Nyahbinghi Reggae, Caribbean Jazz, and traditional African Drumming and Music. Shabaka has played with greats such as Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Bob Marley, The Mighty Diamonds, Calypso Rose, Ras Michael, and Horace Tapscott.
He will be performing with his band Ras Affininty featuring keyboardist Zacky, trombone player Ras Al, and well as singer and dancer NajaRa.
