Watch & Listen
The Expanders began playing reggae music together in the summer of 2003,
and today are one of the hardest working reggae bands in Southern California.
They have come to be known for their vintage style of reggae, played in the
tradition of classic 1970’s Jamaican groups like The Ethiopians, The Gladiators
and The Mighty Diamonds.
Their music is centered in three-part vocal harmonies and strong song writing,
with lyrics that range from socially heavy to playful and upbeat.
As the genre of Reggae continues to evolve, Iya Terra has remained distinguished in both sound and sustenance throughout their 4-year journey. Mashing up messages of traditional Roots music in a today version, the Los Angeles based band demonstrates a modern approach to creating conscious soundwaves that has them bound for infinite possibilities.
