B4518, Rhayader

State of Satta are a 7-piece Reggae band based in Leeds. Having formed in the ashes of 2020, the band have quickly established a name for themselves with their energetic stage show, rambunctious bass lines and beautifully crafted multi-lingual melodies.

Inspired by the sounds of UK Reggae and Cuban music, State of Satta are carrying on the lineage of bands like Gentleman’s Dub Club, UB40 and Fat Freddy’s Drop amongst many other dub influences.

The bands lineup consists of Yotam Sigwalt on guitar/vocals, Ben Burnside on drums, Luke Roy Bryan on bass, Aidan Ruffle on Trombone and FX, Emyr Dance on Trumpet, Billy Burls on percussion and Robin Forkin on Keys.

State of Satta released their debut EP ‘We Still Move’ in 2021 with a special guest appearance from Mungo’s Hifi MC, Tom Spirals. Touring the release extensively they have shared stages with the Dub Pistols, Madness and The Wailers, as well as supporting touring acts Chainska Brassika and The Undercover Hippy.

Joining them for the night will be Skarumba Hifi (formerly Fat Cat Soundsystem) who will be bringing the full might of their heavyweight rig out to play, with selectors Dubios and D-Selekta.
