ZAHIRA & RISING BUFFALO TRIBE

About

Zahira & Rising Buffalo Tribe (Z & RBT) deliver a unique performance that never fails to get the crowd moving! Led by front woman Zahira’s soulful-heart felt vocals and inspiring lyrics, their music is a fusion of roots reggae, funk, pop and dub. Their sound is driven by deep bass, soaring guitar solos and lush harmonies, bringing forth a full power performance that opens hearts and inspires global change.

Zahira & RBT have had the honor of sharing the stage with acts such as: Junior Reid, Prezident Brown, Chezidek, Bunny Wailer, The Original Wailers, Indubious, Sol Seed and more. In addition Zahira has personally collaborated with Sly & Robbie, Luciano, The Cannabis Cup Band, Bibi McGill (Music Director @ Beyonce), KRS One, Yami Bolo, Red Fox & Don One Sound. Zahira has toured both in her native home of Canada, in the USA, as well as Israel, Bali, Thailand, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Canada. Together Zahira & RBT’s current home-base is Portland, Oregon and can be seen playing live all over the Pacific NW & California regularly. Their music wins the hearts of new fans in each place they play as they continue on their mission to bring inspiration to the world through word sound power. This spring and summer they will be on a national tour joined with Hawaiian roots reggae band the Lambsbread & Arkaingelle of Guyana.
