Deep, danceable, dubwise grooves from this Oxford dub reggae band with a soul, folk and rock twist.
ZAIA are a British dub reggae band with a soul, folk and rock twist. At its core, their music is inspired by reggae, but in the song-writing process the band's members also draw on their diverse musical backgrounds, incorporating the sounds of Celtic folk, rock, soul, gospel and even drum 'n' bass into their own unique brand of dub reggae dance music. The result has been described as "a real sun-kissed groove, awash with sparkling brass flourishes and cavernous basslines, but with a deep melodic soulfulness at its heart." ZAIA release their debut album - "Butterflies" - on 26th May 2017 and this includes tracks "Dark Days" and "Fire in My Heart" which have been featured on David Rodigan's BBC Radio 1Xtra show.
