The band came to being in 1982 and their music was always true to the classic roots-reggae style and became an icon of Polish incarnation of Jamaican music.
After 11 years of absence the band went back on stage in 2006 and decided to reactivate. In 2008 they recorded a new album in London, under the watchful eye of famous dubmaster- Mad Professor.
The Toasters came out of the lower east side of Manhattan, New York in 1981. Cutting their teeth at legendary punk rock clubs, like CBGB’S, the band has proceeded on to defy industry skeptics by staying true to their original 2-Tone roots and earning their rightful place in the history of international Ska music.
The band has carved out their reputation and in 2007 surpassed the milestone of 4,500 live concerts performed throughout the world.
Naaman is musical group from Lubin. They specialize in the classic roots-reggae and more energetic dance-hall. The band is well experienced on stage- they played on many festivals including Przystanek Woodstock, Ostróda Reggae Festiwal and Slot Art. Festiwal.
