Biography

BOOM SHAKA’s music ranks with the best of contemporary Roots Reggae Music. These musicians are true Reggae ambassadors, who have carr…ed the Rasta message worldw…de, from Ethiopia, to Europe, the US, Brazil, Morocco, and as far away as China. Their unusual musical talent is doubled with conscious lyrics that address contemporary and universal issues. This is a band which has earned international recognition with a set of hard top ranking alternative Reggae hits.

Founder and lead vocalist Trevy Felix is an initiated descendant of Africans from the Commonwealth of Dominica. After having been immersed in Roots culture and Reggae music from early youth, Trevy went to America and formed Boom Shaka in Los Angeles, gathering the best mixed talent to spread Roots Reggae music throughout the world.

The band members members are from the Commonwealth of Dominica, Jamaica, Antigua and the US.

While many Reggae artists have been hugely influenced by the legendary Bob Marley, Boom Shaka reigns supreme among the inheritors of Reggae ‘s number one prophetic and revolutionary figure, the African Ghetto King, PETER TOSH.

No other band can better illustrate the creative genius of Tosh’s school of Reggae than Boom Shaka.

Like Peter Tosh, Boom Shaka are uncompromising when it comes to the essence of Reggae music’s message, and its creative capacity. But unlike many Reggae artist who nowadays jump from one musical style to the other, Boom Shaka does not need any other new fad to replace the inherent creative possibilities found in Reggae music.
