PRESENTED BY DANELLE NICOL
Koahlition are a colourful six piece, family oriented, band who play upbeat, positive, roots, rock, reggae with a quirky Aussie twang and a South Pacific breeze. Their insightful originals are interwoven with ideas of social conscience and have dancing beats, driving bass and skankin’ rhythms, all infused with electric lead guitar and soulful harmonies. Being Australian Reggae, the bands’ originals have a guitar oriented rocky edge.
As well as three family members, Rohan Rusch, partner Tracy and son Adric, the band consists of Cuz Sharmaine Drieberg-Cullen and Samoan born songstress Tanya Volentras sharing vocals. Saibai Island guitar wizard, Moses Warusam and talented local Chris Elias on drums. The band has played many festivals and gigs all over the Far North in the past few years and has become one of North Queensland’s premier Reggae outfits. Koahlition released a CD late in 2012. “Under the Sun” features some of Cairns’ finest musicians. The CD was produced by esteemed drummer Ben Hakalitz, of Yothu Yindi fame who also featured on the album. Koahlition also cover songs from the legends of Reggae- Bob Marley, Peter Tosh,Toots Hibbert and Jimmy Cliff among others. The music is raw and real.
Koahlition are currently working on new material and hope to record their second album in 2015.
