When delving into Edinburgh’s live music scene, you don’t have to dig too deep to find yourself getting your knees up to the infectious grooves of Irie Yo-Yo.
This seven-piece band is not only a collaboration of musical artists, but also an infusion of cultures. From the blue coastal waters of Malta to the sea shores of Portsmouth and Scarborough, Irie Yo-Yo brings together unique musicians from around the UK and beyond to get feet moving and booties shaking.
Based in reggae and ska, with an eclectic mix of flavours including latin, jazz, drum n bass and dub, their fresh, distinctive sound always gets audiences bouncing. Their material ranges from lighthearted party tunes to more serious social commentary, but a danceable groove is always central to the mix.
