Shanti Powa Orchestra is a 12-piece band from northern Italy founded in 2010. With 9 Instruments & 2 main vocalists. They produce a very powerful Crossover of Reggae, Rap, Ska, Dancehall, Funk & Rock. Because of the different cultural backgrounds of the band members, the lyrics are written in English, Italian, French and German.
On stage the 12 musicians are full of energy; and that combined with their innova- tive music creates a very unique atmosphere involving the whole crowd. In their career Shanti Powa Orchestra have already played hundreds of shows all over Europe (Rototom Sunsplash (ES), Overjam (SL), Reeds (CH)…) sharing the stage with artists such as Max Romeo, The Gladiators, Israel Vibrations, Dub Fx, Julian Marley, Mellow Mood, Luciano, Shaggy, Inner Circle & many more.
In 2014 the band released their first album “The Orchestra”, followed up by “Peaceful Warriors” in 2016. Both albums have been produced by Shanti Powa and released through their own independent label “Shanti Powa Records”.
The Midnight Zu are a collective of musicians and singers based in Bristol, bringing together elements of funk, folk, electro, dub, ska and soul.
These guys revel in spreading good vibes and happy times, layering conscious verse, head-bopping rhythms and sensual melodies that will hook your heart all night and make you breakfast in the morning.
Stricktly Dubplate style from the underground courtesy of Wicked & Bonny! No rules in music – straightbase dubs in a digital and rough analog way, a soul-full and versatile voice and a lot of endless delays, sirens and live effects, produced for a hectic tour plan on the weekends on Soundsystem Sessions and festival stages!
We are open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm.
