Don Chani is keeping the “Texas reggae” sound alive in the Live Music Capital.
What exactly is Texas reggae? According to the nine members of Don Chani it’s a classic roots reggae and dub sound interspersed with elements of contemporary latin music. Every member is a vocalist or multi-instrumentalist, allowing for constant enthusiasm and collective energy across the stage during their live performances. Since 2010 Don Chani has released two full length albums, encapsulating listeners with their positive lyrical messages and steady grooves. Over the years they’ve also played alongside iconic artists like The Wailers, Ziggy Marley, Eek a Mouse and others.
Don Chani has been kind enough to take time out of their busy schedule and drop by Studio 1A to share some of their music. You can stream Don Chani right here at KUTX or check them out at Luna in San Antonio on Friday November 21st!
