Aswad

Introducing international pop and reggae superstars, Aswad, singing some of their biggest hits. After two decades on the music scene and fifteen albums later Aswad remains one of Britain’s best loved reggae bands

Aswad is renowned among reggae fans for their rich melodies and compelling harmonies, woven over hard rhythm tracks and inspired horn riffs. Formed in the Ladbroke Grove area of West London in 1974 the band was among the first home grown acts to prove that Caribbean music could successfully take root in Europe, receiving a Grammy nomination for “Best Reggae Album of the Year”. They became known for their adventurous fusion of such different musical styles as dancehall, funk, hip-hop and dub, performing with the likes of Burning Spear, Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer. Be prepared to be blown away with their songs including – ‘Shine’, ‘Give A Little Love’ ‘On and On’ & the No 1 International smash – ‘Don’t Turn Around’ and many more
