GROUNDATION

GROUNDATION

Formed in 1998, GROUNDATION is one of the legends of world reggae.

 

The mythical Californian jazz reggae group has reformed around its leader HARRISON STAFFORD, who selects the cream of musicians like him from the prestigious Sonoma State University. To the reggae sound still imbued with jazz from the original GROUNDATION, this new generation infuses its technically dazzling talent and creativity, ensuring the next generation hands down. The band's thousands of fans rediscover the incomparable experience they had enjoyed and supported until then.

 

Fruit of this new project, the album "THE NEXT GENERATION" was released in September 2018 by BACO RECORDS. Each of the new musicians brings their influences and subtly tints the album with funk, Latin and African notes. The groove is crazy and HARRISON STAFFORD still so powerful and spiritual! Several world tours have met fans' expectations, delivering concerts between improvisation and total mastery, a high-flying sound communion that propels the group into new spheres. The band took advantage of their time in Europe to record their first live there entitled "THE NEXT GENERATION LIVE", recorded in Italy and released on June 5, 2020!

 

A next studio album is planned for the winter of 2022, which the band will present live in Europe!
