Formed in Sardinia in 2004, Train To Roots is one of the most famous bands on the Italian reggae scene and has captivated audiences at hundreds of concerts all across Europe. While constantly pushing ahead and delivering explosive live shows, they have maintained an unusual mix of styles and languages on all of their discography, incorporating everything from the nuances of Jamaican and black music with engaging and funny lyrics in Italian, Sardinian and English.
The band began its journey with the debut album of the same name Train To Roots (2005). This was followed by Terra e Acqua (2008) featuring Sargento Garcia and Ranking Joe, which was remixed in 2009 with two bonus tracks, including a collaboration with Errol Bellot. Subsequently they released Breathin’ Faya (2011) and Growing (INRI, 2014), which marked a turning point for the band, bringing a new one way of working and introducing new styles of black music.
The fifth album Home (INRI, 2016) is distributed globally by VPAL Music, and includes collaborations of the Italians: Clementino, Madh, Levante and Lion D, as well as Spaniards Aspencat and Auxili. Their latest work is Declaration N° 6 (INRI, 2017), consisting of eleven unreleased tracks enriched by the participation of Bunna, frontman of Africa Unite and Milan songwriter Eugenio Finardi.
During their twenty years career, Train To Roots have incorporated numerous contemporary elements into their music and faced various challenges. Their continuous growth has led them, in 2019, to redirect the train back to the roots in a broad sense, with a return to roots reggae, sung in Sardinian and Italian, as you can hear on their latest singles.
