SPARKED: New Zealand’s Katchafire bring Pacific roots reggae to the Felton Music Hall.
New Zealand roots reggae icons Katchafire started 20 years ago as a Bob Marley tribute band—taking their name from The Wailers’ debut record, Catch a Fire. After the 2018 release of their fifth album, Legacy, which topped international charts, the group has solidified its presence on the forefront of the contemporary reggae scene. Katchafire channels influences from ska and dub with deep bass grooves and easy-going vocals on songs like “I Can Feel it a Lot,” from Legacy. On other numbers, such as “Fyah in the Trenches,” reverb-laden horns and Rhodes harmonies add to the head-bobbing bass-and-drums mix.
