Biography

From the multicultural breeding ground of Barcelona, Zulu 9.30 blends a powerful mix of dancehall reggae, salsa, fun, and a hint of hiphop. Taking the famous Barcelona born Musica Mestiza to another level.

In their colorful mix of music the careful listener will even notice a Brazilian flavour in some of the songs. And they are right because the drummer and the percussionist are cultural immigrants in the Mediterranean capital coming from Salvador de Bahia; giving reggae, salsa and funk rhythms that Brazilian edge. The horns -saxophone and two trumpets- swing tightly and soulfully on top of the deep rhythm section of drum kit, fat bass from the virtuoso Charlie, a variety of percussion and a jazzy piano.
In front of the band you have Bilon Zion on acoustic guitar/vocals, Kodi on electric guitar/vocals and in the centre of stage the charismatic Oski-Jah Man on lead vocals. He proofed to capture the full attention of huge amounts of party people with only his acoustic guitar and his distinctive voice, but also leads the band when the whole band accelerate and temperatures rise to a boiling point. That’s when the percussion, bass and keyboard lay down a no-escape dance groove, the horn section blows you away and the three singers start jumping. It is clear that Zulu 9.30 is a tight touring band that can rip up the dance floor anywhere in the world

New Album ‘Huellas’
After their debut CD ‘Conecta o Revienta’ in 2005, the group played extensively on all kind of stages, from world music festivals to pop events and a string of local clubs. They brought the house down at festivals as Amsterdam Roots (Netherlands) , Pole Pole (Belgium) and Caixa Sabadell Etnival (Spain).
After wrapping up their series of concerts in summer 2007 Zulu 9.30 immediately went on to prepare their new album “Huellas”. Most of the tracks have been written while the band was on the road, but they spend another few months to get the album sounding exactly what they had in mind. Aware of the fact that they have build up a great live reputation the band was eager to challenge that with their studio recordings. To get an internationally competing sound they mixed their new born at the Sterling Sound Studios, New York, in between Julian Marley, Beyonce and Coldplay.
The first single from the album is ‘Tu te vas’ which is a catchy duet with singer Amparo (from Amparanoia) and Zulu’s own Oski-jah man. Check out the video clip!
