The Conquerors Reggae Band is all about roots Reggae, promoting a positive message through their music. Inspired by the Rastafarian way of life and the will to promote the spirit of One Love, peace and harmony. The band plays roots reggae music, including ska and rock reggae, but mostly focuses on the roots sound. Spreading positive messages while making you skank to grooving rhythms is what the Conquerors Reggae Band aspire too. Often referred to as the Conquerors, this live reggae band was formed in 2009 and has been spreading good vibes ever since.

The Conquerors performs regularly at Cape Town Reggae festivals such as Sunny Ocean Reggae Festival, Annual Paarl Rasta Cultural Festival and Monwabisi Reggae Legends Sunsplash. A highlight for the band was opening the 2017 edition of jamming reggae fest headlined by Gentlemen (Germany) which was backed by Azania, SA’s finest reggae outfit. The proceeds of this event went to the Bridges School of music in Langa. Another highlight was playing at the Lucky Dube tribute headline by Nkulee Dube at Athlone Stadium, Cape Town. Last year the band did a reggae at the market tour whereby they performed at some of Cape Town’s popular markets with the objective of contributing to nation building and social cohesion. This year the band had a breakthrough by being selected to perform at the 2020 edition of Cape Town Jazzathon.

The band is growing form strength to strength and continues to push the message of one love, peace and unity through their original roots’ reggae music.
