Siren Sisters feat. MC Treasure Irie & Catitah Steppah (Kulturimpuls e.V. Freising)
Inspired by RastafarI and sound system culture in Jamaica and UK, Catitah Steppah and Siren Sisters play deep roots, meditative dub and heavy steppas. With their selection, the two want to stimulate thought and touch the soul, while at the same time highlighting social and environmental challenges and expressing their resistance to the Babylonian system. Firmly rooted in roots music, with great respect for the originators of reggae, the two vinyl enthusiasts play the latest releases and dubplates in addition to roots classics. Their own sound system is more than just a set of boxes and amplifiers. It is a platform and creates a space to meet and exchange, listen, connect, dance, heal, meditate and celebrate. Their passion has already brought the two vinyl lovers to DubCamp in France, HIMDub Festival in Portugal and Fusion Festival near Berlin and many places in between. In Leipzig, they are joined by the Ecuadorian-born singer MC TREASURE IRIE who enriches their set with live sampling and spoken word lyrics.
