The Om Sound
Formed right here in BC and now based in Montreal, THE OM SOUND thumbs their nose at genre boundaries, embracing neo-soul, electro, hip-hop, reggae and jazz-fusion with equal aplomb. The power trio uses live percussion, synthesizers, keyboards, didgeridoos and guitars to build the sound of a band two or three times their size, carving deep caverns of groove for the masses to move in. The improvisational nature of the band allows them to shift with their audiences' energy. Beautiful vocal harmonies and conscious raps add extra colour and life to their already engaging, sultry grooves.
ENTANGADOS FROM CORDOBA, ARGENTINA RETURNS TO VICTORIA SKA & REGGAE FEST XVIII @ Lucky Bar
Entangados as a band displays explosive energy, musical talent and humour on and off stage. But they also have the power to make almost anyone they perform for or come into contact with feel welcomed and relaxed no matter who they are. Musically the band combines ska, rock, cumbia, salsa and Balkan folk music. In 2016 Entangados closed out Victoria's 17th Annual Ska & Reggae Festival with an unforgettable performance in front of thousands who witnessed it at Ship Point Inner Harbour.
This time around the band will be playing one of the festival's smallest venues at Lucky Bar. So fans that loved them last year are advised to purchase tickets through either a Jupiter VIP Full Fest, Regular Full Fest or single passes!
Joining Entangados will be Montreal's OM Sound. The OM Sound is a tight trio merging genres of hip hop, electro, and jazz-funk to create a mesmerizing and groove-heavy sound. Their world travels serve as inspiration for their socially, environmentally, and spiritually conscious message, conveyed through soul stirring lyrics and rich soundscapes, wrapped up with in-the-pocket beats and blow-your-mind bass lines.
