King Shiloh in Ethiopia

King Shiloh Soundsystem from Amsterdam is one of the leading Roots Reggae Soundsystem formations in Europe. For more than 25 years they have been building boxes and mastering the art or Roots Reggae Sound System. As 'livicated' Rastafarians they have always felt a profound connection with Ethiopia. And now, after years of

preparations, the time has arrived: The King Shiloh Family is making moves into Ethiopia! 

In the second half of 2017, members of King Shiloh Soundsystem will come to Ethiopia to construct a brand-new Soundsystem! They will use their knowledge and experience to build one of the finest sounds on the African continent, the new sound will be launched in Addis Ababa
