The Black Seeds

The Black Seeds

New Zealand reggae-funk legends, The Black Seeds, announce their return to Edinburgh for the first time since 2012.

One of New Zealand’s most-loved acts, in their homeland The Black Seeds are revered stalwarts of the touring and festival circuit, while abroad they’ve remained at the forefront of New Zealand’s internationally renowned roots movement, alongside the likes of Fat Freddy’s Drop and Katchafire.

Described by Clash Magazine as “one of the best live reggae acts on the planet,” the band’s eight-piece live show infuses raw energy and good vibes wherever they go. With countless sold out tours behind them and performances at the world’s leading festivals, The Black Seeds live show delivers a soul party on time, every time.

Firmly rooted in the bass-heavy island grooves that inspired the birth of the band in 1998, The Black Seed’s sound casts a wide net, laying funk, soul, Afrobeat and other eclectic elements over their characteristic brand of reggae/dub.

With a stash of multi-platinum selling albums and hits to their name, including ‘Dust and Dirt’, ‘So True’, ‘Cool Me Down’, and ‘One-By-One’, which became an international hit when it featured in an episode of the award-winning TV series ‘Breaking Bad’, The Black Seeds will perform songs off their extensive catalogue, including their latest sixth studio album FABRIC.
