The Chewstick backing band D.I.A took centre stage at Saturday Night’s Griot Session for a dance party to reggae, hip hop, and everything in-between.
D.I.A. has taken Bermuda by storm as the hottest, freshest backing band playing all-original music from a variety of genres including hip hop, reggae, soul and their newly developed Bermudian genre, gombass. Their imaginative original music has been exceptionally well-received locally and internationally. Comprised of Bermudian drum legend, Scarlet Thomas; guitarist-extraordinaire Kofi; boy wonder, electronic maestro and percussionist Aden Peets; and music director Derek G. Simmons on bass and production.
Bermuda’s best hip hop stars cranked up the energy: Imari, K.A.S.E., & da R?ddla and followed by the reggae vibes of Live Wires.
