The Hip Abduction
The Hip Abduction mixes reggae, rock, and African traditions to create their own unique sound. With heavy emphasis placed on African stringed instruments (kora, ngoni), dub-reggae-inspired bass lines, and funky afro-beat percussion, the band's high-energy performances have won them a loyal statewide following. Formed on the gulf coast of Florida in 2010, The Hip Abduction has quickly grown from just a few African instrument playing surfers to a full-blown 7-piece reggae powerhouse. "THA" (as coined by fans) is currently touring the east coast constantly while hyping their new soon-to-be-released 12-song LP, which was produced by Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star Records).
