From the banks of the Cuyahoga River in Kent, Ohio comes a surprising musical collaboration. The eight-piece band Tropidelic may be far from any islands in their home state, but that doesn’t stop them from dishing out a fresh blend of reggae, hip-hop, and high-energy funk for audiences across the country.
For 10 years, the band has released a series of full-length albums and EPs. Their latest, The Hard North, was released in 2016 and continues the band’s tradition of electrifying grooves and danceable rhythms.
Over the years, Tropidelic has appeared on stages alongside Slightly Stoopid, 311, Pepper, The Dirty Heads, Sublime w/ Roam, The Wailers, Flobots, and many more.
