Païaka cultivates an inexhaustible enthusiasm and feeds on connections and influences. It
builds day after day a remarkable identity, between energetic reggae and ethereal roots:
an original and firmly modern recipe, rediscovered intact on “The Line”, a dancing and
intimate album. It’s a subtle alchemy of soft harmonies and perfect rhythmic, with a touch
of dub and openly oriented towards jazz and rock.
Created in 2010, Païaka is a 8-musicians band and proposes an original reggae-roots
sound. Since 7 years, the band already performed on more than 200 live shows, in France
and abroad (Poland, Spain, Germany, Romania…), with prestigious artists such as Ziggy
Marley, Alpha Blondy, Clinton Fearon, The Abyssinians or Alborosie. Coming from
Clermont-Ferrand, in the Auvergne, the band was quickly spotted by local musical
contests, with the compliments of several specialized medias (Reggae Vibes, Reggae.Fr,
One Drop Magazine, La Grosse Radio, Reggae France, Party Time…). The first opus
“Alive Anyway” (2015) was then remixed in 2016 (“Alive in Many Ways”) in association with
several international dub and electro artists.
The musical style, with many influences, travels from an energetic reggae to an ethereal
roots. Behind the strong and groovy rhythm section,a resonant voice, and a warm and
rhythmic brass instruments confer to Païaka a singular identity, half-way between the very
essence of reggae and the jazz inspirations. With the texts, in the absolute tradition,
Païaka cultivates an honest and live-saving message that claims the collective awareness
and awakens reflexion.
In February 2018, the band releases its second album “The Line”, intimate, dancing and
grown up over the many live shows and meetings, with a tour of several months across
France and Europe ongoing. The album was made with the help of the nu-reggae
producer Flox.
