Iconic reggae ensemble Ras Jahknow Band are bringing their dynamic, high-energy, positive music to The Penny Black with a night guaranteed to uplift and inspire with powerful messages of unity and ONE LOVE vibrations. Ras Jahknow blazes new soul and fresh rhythms into what is described best as culturally rich, roots reggae music, Passionate vocals in English and Creole weave through the diverse native sounds from the African island nation of Cape Verde, Brazil, Tanzania and Mauritius to Australia. The band embodies a vision of unity, respect and peace, built on the foundation of irresistible, reggae rhythms, which has won them awards and seen them showcase at the Antenna Awards in 2014 and at numerous festivals across Australia. The band released their debut album 'Jah Sta Li' in 2014 to much acclaim and have enjoyed airplay across national radio such as triple j and hundreds of local community stations. 2017 saw Ras Jahknow accept the award for 'Best Reggae Performer/Band of the year 2015/16' at the Australia Reggae Radio Music Awards, an International tour in Indonesia, a host of festivals and shows throughout the country and finishing off with another tour of Malaysia for the Langkawi International Island Music Festival. Joining the extravaganza is DJ Rus Tuffa, spinning bangers on the wheels of steel.
