JAZZ KLUB SATCHMO: Raggalution

  • Jazz klub Satchmo 6 Strossmayerjeva ulica Maribor, Maribor, 2000 Slovenia (map)

Po dolgem času bo v našem lokalu odmeval Reggae! Z nami so prijatelji iz Kranja, med drugim udeleženci letošnjega OverJama!

Reggae kolektiv Raggalution iz Kranja že od leta 2011 ustvarja avtorsko glasbo, s katero je že na prvem koncertu takoj pridobil simpatije občinstva. Kljub nekomercialnosti in brez neke pretirane popularnosti v medijih ter soclialnih omrežjih, se je skupini s trdim delom uspelo dokaj hitro uveljaviti tako na domači sceni kot tudi v tujini.
Raggalution se tako lahko že pohvalijo s kar lepim številom odigranih koncertov, na katerih so si oder delili z mnogimi uveljavljenimi imeni slovenske in mednarodne glasbene scene. Po uspešnih gostovanjih v sosednji Avstriji imajo za sabo že prvo turnejo po Balkanu, v okviru katere so lani spomladi obiskali nekatere države bivše Jugoslavije, poleti pa so med drugim nastopili tudi na nekaterih odmevnih tujih festivalih, kot so Sziget, Seasplash, Skaville in drugi.
Konec leta 2013 so Raggalution izdali svoj studijski prvenec »Mask Of Liberty«, na katerem je zbranih deset avtorskih pesmi, ki predvsem predstavljajo kritiko stanju v družbi in opozarjajo na neko drugačno, boljšo alternativo. Album je bil zaradi izrednega zanimanja v zelo kratkem času razprodan in je že dočakal tudi prvi ponatis, kar je danes, v dobi interneta in digitalnih nosilcev zvoka, že prava redkost.

Since 2011 Raggalution have been creating their own brand of Reggae music, which immediately earned them acclaim among audiences. Despite their uncommercial approach and without much media exposure or social media activity, the hard-working group managed to quickly establish a strong presence on both local and international music scenes.
Raggalution now have quite an impressive number of shows under their belt, and have shared the stage with many big names of the Slovene and international music scenes. After a few successful visits to nearby Austria they completed their first tour of the Balkans last spring. This tour brought Raggalution to many parts of former Yugolavia, while the summer saw them performing at some major international festivals, such as Sziget, Seasplash, and Skaville, among others.
At the end of 2013 Raggalution released their debut album “Mask of Liberty”, comprised of 10 original songs, which present a sharp criticism of the state of modern society and point to different, better possibilities for the future. Due to lots of interest from the public the album sold out very quickly and has since been re-released in a remastered edition. This marks “Mask of Liberty” as a rare achievement in today’s age, when the internet and digital sound carriers have made CDs almost obsolete.
