Milele Roots / Bio

MiLeLe Roots although from diverse backgrounds, has a keen interest in roots-reggae-intensive music. The group receives critical acclaim for their uncompromising fusion of roots reggae, psychedelic dub, punk-drenched ska, bluesy R&B, funk and meringue rhythms.

MiLeLe (Swahili for "eternal") Roots' diversity is echoed by the diversity of their fans. The Live Performances are positive, conscious and upbeat with a contagious groove that permeates the consciousness of the audience. Shimmering cool, yet 'funkily' hot: the performances bring satisfaction whether in clubs large and small, as well as outdoor festivals and parties.

From the stage you can expect a heartfelt performance of original music and rendition of classic reggae from: Steel Pulse, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Third World, Toots and the Maytals, The Mighty Diamonds, Augustus Pablo, The Skatelites, Black Uhuru, The Specials etc... Usually covers that you don't hear other band do. We give a nod to Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Band, Neil young, Tom Petty and Hip Hop classics with a reggaelicious twist!

Bassist Christian Craan from Port-au-Prince, Haiti founded the band with a big love for reggae music and Afro-rhythms and a simple formula: Fill the ranks with the best musicians in the area and play music from the heart.

The core line-up includes: Christian 'Roots' Craan on bass,David DePriest on drums, Jonathan Wimpee on guitar and vocals,
Rob Hoskins on Keyboard vocals and percussion, Allison Waller - Trombone guitar, vocals, Keyboards, and Percussion. Ada Barnes percussion. Jonnie Fritts - Sax.
Milele Roots is currently recording their second release due out this summer - Soul. Check out the music right here on REVERBNATION.
