LesSkartoi live Patras Art Festival 2

Les SkartOi! rocksteady orchestra

Since 2004, a group of friends were digging the sounds of the Jamaican subculture in a small basement. SKA Rocksteady and Reggae are the meeting place of the orchestra and through the music they express the rhythms of the 60s explosion in the way it was reflected from the small Caribbean island.

Les SkartOi! are not just living in the revival and reproduction of their influences, but they continue productively the tradition that left by the greatest creators of the genre.

All the years of their musical activity "Les SkartOi!" have several concerts and a series of productions.

Their last album called "Twenty Four Hours" (2019), it is a compilation of soulfull rocksteady and powerful ska beat. They have shared many gigs with bands like Bad Manners, Thievery Corporation, Lee Perry, The Beat, Symarip, Aggrolites, Manu Chao, Dennis Bovvel and others.
