About the artist :
The Strides are a force for Reggae music in Australia and worldwide. Fronted by roots man Ras Roni from barbados via London, Fijian MC LTL GZeus and Sierra Leonian ragga powerhouse Blaka C, The Strides deliver a musical experience that is as explosive as it is authentic.
With three acclaimed albums under their belt and one set for release in early 2019, a European label signing, festival appearances across the country and having graced the stage with the likes of Third World, Julian Marley, Tony Allen and Groundation, The Strides’ music faithfully builds on the foundation of classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, dub beats and reggae-pop.
After 10 years of touring, this world class 9-piece have become a reggae institution, melding a diversity of cultures and instrumentation under the one universal consciousness.
