United Vibrations

United Vibrations are the brothers Ahmad, Kareem, and Yussef Dayes and Wayne Francis II. They describe their sound as 12tone, referencing but decidedly expanding on 2tone’s mix of ska and punk. Their list of musical inspirations ranges from John Coltrane to Fela Kuti, Weather Report to Bob Marley, Ali Farka Touré to Sun Ra and the myriad sounds of the world.

Defying classification, this unique group may be best described by the emotion and vibes they instill.  “United Vibrations are genuinely the most important band to come out of the UK since the big rock bands of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.”– Jazz Refreshed
