"Caribbean/ Belizean Park Fest"

Ras Indio, hailing from the tribe of OBI (the son of Bro. David Obi), Belizean Cungo Music extraordinaire, was truly a great addition to the second annual Caribbean/ Belizean Park Fest held this last September 11th in Los Angeles. Ras Indio hit the stage with a burst of energy, captivating the audience with his unique style and positive lyrics. At one point in his performance, he urged the crowd to join in on one of his catchy hooks, which they did...almost as if they new the song for many years. With a little more time, Ras Indio will definitely be a force to contend with in the Mega Business of the reggae industry.........Nuff Respect from the Seabreeze Family. - Pupa Curly

"Live Performance Review"

I wished I had filmed the scenes . . . every time Ras Indio performed (and he did numerous times in Washington, United States) he electrified the audience with positive vibes, energy, and his clear and vibrant voice. Without temerity, Ras Indio jumped on stage and opened for Culture and Inner Circle in Seattle, the town he just happened to be visiting. He was called onto the stage when the groups' opening bands did not show, and took over like a fire ball. The crowds loved him! Ras Indio is a true performer all the way." - Bana Devi

Feeling a bit camera shy


Ras Indio, aka David Obi was born in Los Angeles, CA on September 23, 1976 to Belizean parents: Ms. Beulah Heusner and Mr. David Obi - a famous Belizean revolutionary musical artist known as “Bredda David”, creator of Belizean Kungo Music.

As a youth, Ras Indio relocated to Belize and taught himself the keyboards with guidance from his dad. He started performing at local events around Belize at age 12 as the keyboardist in his dad’s band, TRIBAL VIBES.

From ages 15-21 he toured nationally and internationally including Mexico, USA and Europe.

While living back in the United States again, Indio linked up with Cousin Quinn and Moses creating WOOD DWELLAS, a Belizean hip-hop/dancehall group. They produced two albums in the U.S. with annual trips to Belize. Performances included opening for Beanieman, Vegas, Berres Hammond and XStatic. They also had their television debut on MTV on “The Cut” with the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez of TLC.

Ras Indio moved back to Belize and developed Indigenous Productions embarking himself on his solo career.

Popular in Belize, Ras Indio received the award in 2004 for “Best Belizean Reggae/Dancehall Artist” which was voted by the general public newspaper ballot. Belize uses his past hit single “ Wild Wild West” as an anti-violence anthem. Ras Indio promotes the music he loves in many ways. With a clear deliverance, he spreads universal messages of truth, love and righteousness.
