Hello dear friends,

Wishing you ALL a happy new year! ... it is a time of new energy, new vision, new vibrations, new spirit! ... so we invite you ALL to come celebrate and dance with us to this new rhythm, as we join together in a *** UNION OF SPIRIT *** ... a night of reggae and psychedelic waves... to uplift, renew, re-energise and expand...

We have very special guest band joining us for this journey...
*** MADU ***

This key Dublin-based band fronted by Irish/Malaysian brother and sister team – dub and beats controller Salim and vocalist Aminah – play an infectious combination of sounds which steer away from typical dub soul or reggae sounds to create a psychedelic roots music imbued with mystery and nostalgia. Their music is a combination of influences driven by bass heavy rhythms, vibrant melody and conscious lyrics.
Songs written individually or as a collaborative process by the music driven siblings brings diversity to their thought provoking tunes. Salim’s years as an experienced producer with his strong affinity for reggae music and skills as an electronic composer are the basis on which he builds the unique Madu sound. His productions intertwine with Aminah’s soulful melodies, her experience over the years singing jazz, blues, folk and roots music, combine to create a dynamic sound. Think King Tubby meets Billie Holiday.

From opening to closing track Madu connect well with audiences through their positive, uplifting performance. Having played in Ireland, the UK and Malaysia from big festivals to small intimate venues, their sound is catching on, a style which has been formed by years playing, writing, producing and being influenced by much travel, absorbing the unique sounds and cultures of Asia, the Pacific and Europe. Through their nomadic journeys and collaborations with artists such as Mexican duo Rodrigo y Gabriela, New Zealand’s Jetlag Johnson of Fat Freddys Drop, Asia’s drum icon Lewis Pragasam and many more have they have arrived at the unique Madu sound.


We will also be providing for you the psychedelic sounds from resident Earth Star djs TRIBAL CELT & ALIEN ANGEL.
The magnificent PAVILION will once again be transformed for your visual pleasure by the talented INFINITE PHENOMENA and to travel with you on this rhythmical journey will be VJ TRANSMORPHIC MINDFIELD.
