Darky Roots have established themselves as one of the most sought after reggae acts in the country. Strong performances at the Island Vibe Festival, Kuranda Roots and Reggaetown, have led to invitations to play the Woodford Folk Festival, the Byron Reggae Festival and a New Year tour of NZ.
With wo EP’s under their belt – ‘Wrong Place’ and ‘Journey’, Darky Roots have already had their music on three compilation albums – Island Vibe 4 & 5, and West End Carnivale 2. They are hugely popular on Brisbane’s 4ZZZ FM and are regularly played on the Roots ‘n’ All Show on Triple J.
Darky Roots are based in Brisbane yet all share Maori ancestry – which reflects in the bands tight kinship and distinctive Pacific sound. To listen to their music is to understand their rise in popularity. Their strength lies in their song-writing abilities and tight 4 part harmonies. A warm rhythm section and vibrant horns round out the sound to create some first class reggae.
