Toronto’s most exciting musical warriors dwell within the melodious confines of IBADAN. This “warrior camp” founded by bassist, Peter “Burna” Holung and keyboardist, Edwin Harrigan in 1994, is the site where dedicated members hone their skills to perfect the product, IBADAN; Reggae’s and R&B’s sweetest exponent from Toronto .
The IBADAN crew, an eclectic mix of music combatants from Jamaica, The British Virgin Islands (via Anguilla) and Canada, is easily identifiable by an insistent and “unique militancy” that punctuates every note they play. The result is an intoxicating and hypnotic mélange of the sweetest Reggae and Rhythm and Blues arrangement and vocals that never fails to pierce a path into the psyche and hearts of its targets.
Sharp, tight and extraordinarily professional, IBADAN fuses the techniques of Marley, Third World, Earth Wind & Fire, The Funk Brothers and even The Beatles.
From the worlds’ most famous drum and bass duo, Sly and Robbie, to The U.K.’s singing sensation, Bitty McLean; Reggae Ambassadors, Third World to heavyweight veterans Ken Booth, Leroy Sibbles, Gregory Isaacs, Freddie McGregor, Luciano and Tony Rebel; this gifted ensemble of musicians is Canada’s most favorite reggae band.
Fortified by the talent of its instrumentalists, – Peter, Edwin, Chris and Donnie – lead singer, D’Vocalz and the gorgeous and capable supporting vocalists, Rraine and Marcia; IBADAN is now a staple of almost every major festival and night spot in Toronto. Yet, there are bigger goals to accomplish and many more territories to conquer.
The globe-trotting reggae ambassadors are off to their next destination, Europe. The band, who announced their 35th Anniversary Celebration tour late last year, have been traveling extensively since launching the tour at the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival on January 29, 2010. Since then, the group has performed at Jumbies in St. Thomas, Foxy’s in Jost Van Dyke – British Virgin Islands, Shirley Heights in Antigua, Captain Hiriam’s Resort, Cruzan Amphitheater, Jannus Landing in Florida and at the St. Kitts Music Festival in St. Kitts.
Having covered the Caribbean, the group will travel to Europe for a two week tour. They will perform at the Reggaeland Festival in Plock, Poland, NOWA Reggae Festival in Barcelona, Dour Festival in Belgium and Might Sounds Festival in Czech Republic. Richard “Bassie” Daly states, “While we have traveled to Europe on several occasions, it is always meaningful to us that we get invited back time and time again. We are very fortunate as a group to be celebrating such a monumental anniversary and still having fans that come out to see our shows no matter where we go.”
