Soundbites: Zion I, S.O.J.A., and Rebelution

Zion I

In a night of Reggae, Zion I’s hip-hop was a refreshing opening. The duo of DJ AmpLive and MC Zumbi hail from Oakland, California. Zumbi’s high-energy performance combined with AmpLive’s beats and samples transformed a sluggish crowd into a bouncing, cheering mob.

S.O.J.A.

Bringing their distinct sound all the way from Arlington, Virginia Soldiers of Jah Army put an interesting spin on Reggae music with its 80’s hair metal guitar solos. The seven-member band includes a saxophone and trumpet that make for some great interludes during their otherwise very Reggae songs.

Rebelution

They may look like frat boys, but don’t let that fool you. Rebelution has a laid-back style that mellows you out and promotes socially conscious ideals. The Santa Barbara-based band has already garnered radio play and seems well on their way to a mass following.
