Katchafire is on the road again! The legendary roots rockers from New Zealand are live at the Arts Club on 17 August. Katchafire’s O2 Academy show will also welcome England's very own mischievous ska influenced Chainska Brassika as support.
Hailing from the mighty H-Town (Hamilton), Aoteoroa, Katchafire have become a global roots reggae phenomenon. The all Maori Reggae band bring their pure classic sound to music lovers worldwide, delivering one of the most authentic Reggae shows around today.
Four highly successful studio albums, multiple awards, platinum sales, highest selling singles, and the list goes on. Their sound is built on the foundations of classic roots reggae with an R’n’B and funk rub, mashing modern dancehall and slinky reggae pop. Katchafire has crafted a universal vibe, capturing something truly special in a diversity of instrumentation and clarity of sound.
Chainska Brassika - Fresh from recording their second album at Harry J Studio's in Kingston, Jamaica, as prize for winning The World Reggae Contest, Chainska are following in the tradition of musical island hopping with their infectious ska-infused dance music.
