The Hip Abduction / Bio

The Hip Abduction mixes reggae, rock, and African traditions to create their own unique sound. With heavy emphasis placed on African stringed instruments (kora, ngoni), dub-reggae-inspired bass lines, and funky afro-beat percussion, the band's high-energy performances have won them a loyal statewide following. Formed on the gulf coast of Florida in 2010, The Hip Abduction has quickly grown from just a few African instrument playing surfers to a full-blown 6-piece reggae powerhouse. “THA” (as coined by fans) is currently touring the east coast constantly while hyping their new highly praised self-titled LP, which was produced by Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star Records).
