Featuring some of the best reggae musicians from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, Zimbabwe, Denmark and Ireland The Light Runners are a rare treat with a back story as exciting and interesting as their music. Some members have fled dictatorships, spent years touring the world with soukous bands, led gospel choirs and performed on The Late Late Show while others having been busting their chops touring and grooving their way across some of Europes finest festivals! Staying true to roots reggae the band have been in and out of the studio recording their debut album that preaches "one love, peace and harmony in a time of fake news, war, migration, and xenophobia. Blending their own original music with Jamaican, African and English reggae The Light Runners have quickly become synonymous with hypnotic hooks and fluid vocal harmonies with a distinctly African flair. The head of this international super group Lazare Mbouwoua and his enigmatic and energetic performances are sure to bring a smile to your face and people of all ages to the dance floor.
