Bristol's own 9-piece collective Malika Roots blend a unique fusion reminiscent of soul, dub and reggae. Supporting acts such as Laid Blak and Jeremiah Ferrari, they have used heavy grooves right from the onset, amongst a backdrop of moody soul, to encompass intoxicated distant memories and confidently work their way into the Bristol live music scene. Just after the completion of their debut EP, Malika Roots are coming together to use their influences of jazz, funk, reggae and soul to weave an energetic kaleidoscope of sounds, displaying a unique and mesmerising live performance.
