Sola Kamba - Biography:
Born from the meeting of musicians based in Valais, Switzerland. Sola Kamba plays a conscious, powerful and melodic reggae. Founded in 2009 the band meets artists from several horizons around a common project : sharing of music.
In Summer 2011, Sola Kamba meets Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, the most prolific Jamaican drummer from the golden age of reggae music, this quickly leads the group to create its first album.
The Sola Kamba vibes, advice from the Jamaican and the involvement of all, lead to the recording of 9 original tracks, at the Grooveharmony Studio. The 1st January 2012, enjoying a unique opportunity, Sola Kamba invites Cedric Myton (The Congos) to sing on 3 riddims. This adventure strengthens the band determination and allows them to complete the recording with 6 new compositions.
In February, a delegation flies to Kingston, Jamaica to finalise the project in the homeland of reggae. The album is mixed at the Small World Studio by Gaylard Bravo and mastered at Anchor Studio by Spiderman.
Local Jamaican artists appreciate Sola Kamba's music, like the well-known DJ Big Youth who records an original version upon one of Sola Kamba's riddim.
Fortified by these experiences and more than ever determined to share its music, Sola Kamba releases its album "Wallissically" in September 2012.
This release is accompanied by a tour in Switzerland (Bazik Festival, Rencart, Kingdom Club, Bar King,…).
On stage the band rises to its own dimension, each musician together in harmony for an explosive result.
