"KAYA FESTIVAL 2012 (1-3 JUNE 2012)"

I gave the DJs a miss and went to the smaller Syrcus tent on the hill to try and get warm in the crowd there. Just as well otherwise I’d have missed local band Tacsi. Their music seemed to be a mix of afro/reggae/punk/pop and was very danceable with some witty lyrics. Band line-up was lead singer/harmonica player (quite a character), electric guitar, trumpet, bass, keyboards (too loud in the mix), Zimbabwean kit-drummer and two percussionists. They set up a great vibe and I gradually warmed up to them as I thawed out. They certainly had the audience eating out of their hands and the tent was buzzing on their energy. - Glyn Phillips (WorldMusic.co.uk)


Their debut album was released in 2011, titled 'Turkey Shore Road' and you can hear it here:



TACSI are a 6 piece bilingual band from Anglesey in North Wales.
Their music is rooted in reggae, soul, funk and blues whilst retaining a uniquely Celtic flavour.
Intriguing song writing and arrangements ensure an interesting and powerful live experience.

They have played many festivals and gigs, they get regular airplay on BBC Wales and Cerys Matthews has played them recently on Radio 6.
