Zvuloon Dub System is spreading the message of peace, love and unity through their music.
The group brings up-to-date original reggae which continues the line of deep roots in the golden age of Jamaican reggae from the 1970s to the early ’80s.
Similar to other contemporary roots bands, Zvuloon’s music is deeply influenced by funk, jazz and rock, alongside Middle Eastern Jewish and Ethiopian music.
The band’s sound is flavored by effects and heavy emphasis on the drums and the bass that create the deep experience of Jamaican dub tradition.
Since first going on stage in the summer of 2006, the band enjoys great success among reggae fans all around Israel.
On stage, Zvuloon uses an effect system that was built especially to create dub versions with special effects and mixes.
These days, the band is working on its first album that will include original material and cooperation with well-known reggae artists, among them the great Ranking Joe.
Other than playing original music, Zvuloon is also working as a backing band for international reggae artists such as Apple Gabriel from Israel Vibration and UK DJ Brother Culture.
Zvuloon performs at the Queen’s June 18 in an early show, beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets $13 in advance at the Thirsty Camel and the Queen’s.
The Queen’s is located on Victoria Crescent in downtown Nanaimo.
