Kaya Foundation is one of the first reggae groups established in Romania. Starting its activity in 2008, Kaya always pushed the reggae movement forward through their dances, music selection and their dedication to conscious roots reggae and dub music. In 2009 Kaya built Kogaion Sound System, the first local sound. Pushing the militant rockers rhythm even further, Kaya became an emblematic name for the Romanian scene of reggae music.

This month, Kaya Foundation is celebrating ten years of activity so, we invited them for an extended session at our bimonthly Social Sundays. Enjoy this fine selection of roots reggae music and if you are in town on the 20th of April be sure to come at their session alongside Sir Festus Coxsone and Jah Order Sound System

The militant lyrics and the attitude towards the Big Brother oppression have formed a strong connection between punk and reggae.

Protoje and the spirit of reggae revival

Andrei Bucureci and Codin Oraseanu - Sep 05, 2018

After almost 50 years of a solid reggae genre where the harmony, rhythm, percussion and sounds where well established comes a new approach. Straight from the mother island of Jamaica, a new concept is born – the reggae revival. A term coined by Protoje, Chronixx and Jah9 to help them better market their sound.
