Win a VIP Experience at Richmond World Festival
This festival of music, arts, food and culture from around the globe is already pretty amazing, but how would you like $50 in vouchers to spend at the vast selection of food trucks and a meet and greet with Friday’s headliners, Bedouin Soundclash?
Formed nearly two decades ago, and named after Israeli dub artist/producer Badawi’s 1996 release of the same name, Bedouin Soundclash debuted in 2001 with the album Root Fire. Their acclaimed sophomore release Sounding a Mosaic (2004) featured the hit single, “When the Night Feels My Song” and was produced by legendary punk-hardcore royalty Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains. The album earned Bedouin Soundclash their first JUNO Award in 2006 for Canada’s ‘Best New Group.’ Their follow-up album, Street Gospels (2007) also produced by Jenifer, earned a “Pop Album of the Year” nomination and “Video of the Year” nomination for the single “Walls Fall Down” at the 2008 JUNOs as well as three Much Music Video Award nominations for their video for “Until We Burn in the Sun” in 2009. In their long career, the band has shared the stage with the likes of The Roots, No Doubt, Ben Harper, Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Damian Marley, Gogol Bordello and Thievery Corporation, among others.
In 2010, the band released their fourth studio album, Light the Horizon, which included the singles “Mountain Top,” “Elongo,” and “Brutal Hearts”– the latter featuring French-Canadian singer-songwriter Coeur de pirate. And now, after a seven year hiatus, the band re-emerges ready to release their fifth studio album +MASS- set for release in early 2019.
