Still working on that hot first release.



Fronted by the dynamic vocal duo of Zimbabwean soul singer Thando Sikwila and rising Melbourne emcee Sinks, 9-piece Dub, Reggae, Hip Hop outfit Echo Drama push the boundaries of Jamaican and Urban music from traditional Roots to new school Ragga flavours. The result is a sound at once steeped in the traditions of Dub and Reggae but also unafraid to draw on modern manifestations such as Hip Hop, Dancehall and DnB.

“The dynamism of Melbourne nine-piece, Echo Drama is a thing of wonder. A downright dreamy combination of traditional reggae and contemporary hip-hop and RnB will have you hooked within mere moments of your first listening. ” - AU Review

In 3 years of existence the band has developed a refined live show performing regularly across local stages, residencies, festival appearances and international supports with highlights such as Easy Star All Stars (USA), The Skatalites (Jamaica), NYE On The Hill, St Kilda Festival, Rainbow Serpent, The Hills Are Alive, Blenheim Fest, Inca Roads Festival and Folk Rhythm & Life.

“Echo Drama play a seamless melding of hip hop and reggae that conveys a pure, grooving happiness…it is impossible not to dance and sway to the infectious music” –Tone Deaf

In addition to storming the live circuit, the last 18 months have seen Echo Drama release both their debut EP “Bury The Weapons” and follow up remix album “Remix The Weapons”. Both records continue to amass radio play across Australia on Triple J, PBS, RRR, FBI and 4ZZZ to name but a few and were both featured in PBS top 10 records across 2014.

"Their debut EP, Bury The Weapons, showcases their ability to celebrate the traditions of Dub and Reggae, resulting in a collection songs that are both playful and soulful.” - What Sound Melbourne

With Echo Drama and their sound continuing to evolve and grow, 2015 has already seen the band win the best new act award at St Kilda Festival, scoring them a coveted spot on the main stage at the festival in 2016 as well as a handsome cash prize which will see the band entering the studio in the coming months to commence their first full length album. Stay tuned!

“While respectfully doffing their various bits of headgear to those who came before them, Dub/Reggae juggernaut Echo Drama have prioritised good music over pigeon holes in a band where the musical influences are almost as diverse as its audience appeal” - Beat Magazine
