“In "Louisiana My Home," a song on the new Ashes of Babylon CD, the singer promises he's going to "stay true to [his] Cajun culture." That line is indicative of lyrics that often relate to Cajun and Louisianian concerns. In fact, the very title of the new CD - Day to Day Living - could be seen as expressing a particularly Cajun view of life. The band roster is laced with Cajun names - Saucier, Guidry, Daigle. At least a few fans must have marveled that such a crew can create such a consistently authentic reggae sound. Everything on the disc, including vocal delivery, fits solidly into reggae tradition. While there is some crossover, multi-genre work on the CD, for the most part, it's purist reggae.”

    Details

    Natural Vibrations, aka Natural Vibes or Natty Vibes, is Hawai’i's most popular and acclaimed band from the Windward side of O’ahu. They started out as a group of friends who loved playing music and went from playing backyard parties to headlining some of Hawai’is biggest shows and venues. Since 1996 they’ve recorded 6 full length albums featuring a sound with strong roots in reggae, rock and pop. Their unique musical blend combined with a party and dance energy has allowed them share the stage with artists like Prince, 311, Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, UB40, Jack Johnson, Pepper and SOJA, to name a few. The same sound and vibe that has earned them the respect of some of reggae’s biggest names has also brought them multiple Best Reggae Album and People’s Choice awards at the Hawaii Music Awards, as well as, Hawai’i's prestigous Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. “Our biggest accomplishment is to after 15 years still be playing and producing music that is loved and anticipated by our fans.” Thats the driving force behind their current goal to relocate to the west coast, tour nationally and record new music. With the help of Polynesian Underground, Natural Vibrations will embark on new territory and new listeners.
