Combining a rich musicality with continent-spanning influences, Cassia have made their mark with their own brand of calypso-flavoured indie pop of bands like Foals and Vampire Weekend with the afrobeats of Fela Kuti and American folk influences like Paul Simon to create an individual sound that uplifts. Living in Zambia as a young boy, Rob grew up under a diet of West African music. His grandfather was always flicking through his vast record collection and “conditioning him from an early age”. The flavours of different cultures poured into the music that he and his band make today. This is a free admission show.
After signing to Distiller Records in 2018, the band gave up their jobs and ventured to Bath to record their debut album, Replica, out April 5th.
