On Sunday, July 23 will be the turn of the second band qualified for the final of the Bababoom band contest, Ka jah City from Messina.
The Ka Jah City were born in October 2009 in Messina. The various musical influences that have taken place have led to the creation of an unspecified genre rich in contamination (reggae, ska and folk, are the most obvious).
Over the years, the band has faced numerous lineup changes, counting among its members and former members more than 15 musicians, reaching the definitive and stable current formation consisting of:
Agnese Carrubba - Voice,
David Scimon - Guitar
Roberto Bonasera - Guitar
Marzio Cometa - Alto Sax
Flavio Cometa - Sax tenor
Rosary Puglisi - Low
David Ieni - Battery
In the early years of their business, the Ka Jah City, they collaborated with several Messianic musicians, with the desire to collaborate in the future with many others who wanted it.
Music is in the first place, followed by comparison and collaboration. Squares and venues have been the scene of their performances.
In June 2013, the group participated in the "Music & Art Festival 2013" competition, winning the first place. The first single, "All Alzanu hands them" feat. L Gulash, has been included as an opening song in "Cafon Street - episode 9 - Na Buatta 'the Tumpulati" by UollasComix Productions.
