With waves of continentals–as in the African continent–arriving in Boise, it was just a matter of time until a homegrown Afro-pop reggae band gelled.
Heavy on reggae ballads, Rizing’s debut album, Hard Work, also boasts a few surprising numbers informed more by African percussion from Ghanaian Harrison Tei and Sudanese drummer Jackson Lino.
“Chuma,” a rousing soukous number, is the best example of this. Another nod to the band’s African roots, “Rhumba,” provides a slower but equally booty-shaking good time.
Backed by Shamsuddin Kadre on lead guitar and vocals, Blake Fischer on keyboards and Darcy Erickson on bass, Gadaga croons about his Mozambique, love lost and Jah in five languages. The closing ballad, a slow number called simply “Mozambique,” is an insightful, can-dread end to what Rizing Rezistance hopes is a tour around the world for Boise audiences.
