Soothsayers at Rich Mix

Soothsayers at Rich Mix

Led by trumpeter Robin Hopcraft and saxophonist Idris Rahman (both band-leaders and producers), the Soothsayers are a music collective noted for their blistering live shows. The South London group have been kicking up a live storm with their organic mix of reggae, afro-beat, funk, urban jazz and dub for over 10 years. The next album release, ‘One More Reason’, brings their love of dub to the fore – harnessing some deep dub grooves to perfectly compliment their pulsating Afro-beat rhythms and mighty horn arrangements.

Soothsayers also features Idris’ sister Zoe Rahman on keys (with whom Idris recently released the critically acclaimed ‘Where Rivers Meet’), guitarists Phil Dawson and Derek Johnson, bassist Kodjovi Kush, drummer Patrick Illingworth, percussionist Satin Singh , vocalist Julia Biel and a host of guest musicians including Lucky Ranku and Frank Tontoh as well as legendary reggae vocalists Johnny Clarke, Michael Prophet and Linval Thompson alongside contributions from Mad Professor and legendary dub guru Nick Manasseh a mainstay of the UK dub scene for over 20 years.

“Thrilling harmonies…seriously infectious dance-floor grooves…goose bump inducing vocals” The Guardian
“An impressive mosaic of afrobeat, dub and funk” Echoes
