Akasha is the premiere reggae band on the Chicago musical landscape, sounding like they stepped out of a 1972 session at Studio One, but also embroidering on the Jamaican canon with diverse modern influences. Powerfully authentic but also accessible to the contemporary ear, Akasha's approach to reggae is both a refreshing and earnest tribute. Akasha's new LP, Mother Of Exiles, is a concept album dealing with issues such as immigration, discrimination, and oppression. This recording is as on point a statement on our current tumultuous times as one can imagine, and is certain to resonate with any listener. Given Mother of Exile's thematic material and Akasha's continued musical evolution, this new album is certain to set a new standard for the reggae genre. Cosmos Ray's lead vocals, Doug Bistrow's bass, Scott Moss' guitar, Shane Jonas' horns and keys, and John Barbush's drums along with their hallmark four-part harmony come together to forge Akasha's signature sound, which has backed Jamaican legends including Dennis Alcapone, Charlie Organaire, Johnny Osbourne, Keith and Tex, Ranking Joe, Carlton Livingston, Ky-Mani Marley and most recently Niney The Observer. Akasha also hosts what has become Chicago's best-loved monthly reggae night, Simmer Down Sound, which features both live performance and DJ sets from established and emerging national and international talent.
