  • An authentic Caribbean sound from Malaga, the 1213 Reggae band will be playing in Torremolinos next month

One of Malaga’s most established reggae bands will bring its trench town rock to Torremolinos next month. Formed in the early 1990 as Raza Reggae, the band changed its name to the 1213 Reggae Band and has since built up a strong following on the Malaga reggae scene. The four-piece band, who released their CD Remastered 2019 last year, produce an authentic Caribbean sound, which is enriched by the unusual voice of lead singer El Gordo. The group has a consolidated sound based on roots reggae, Jamaican dance hall, and ragga, a subgenre that has undertones of hip-hop.

The open-air concert will be held in Plaza de Andalucía in Torremolinos on 8 August. The free concert begins at 9.45pm, early arrival is advised.
