Beyond our knowledge, in the autumn of 2014 - Zuri Aura were preparing to dive headfirst into their first winter season gigging around the mountains. Such as chance, at Finest HQ we were also prepping for our first winter promoting the debut shred goodies. The attraction was Morzine, the mission was to spread the love.
Raw energy and passion married with love for all beats reggae and dub make Zuri one of the compelling bands we've ever had the pleasure of listening to, let alone share pints with! Their sets in the past have combined infectious covers of Fat Freddy's Drop, The Specials and DJ Fresh's 'Gold Dust' with soulful tracks written by their own musical hand. Their music was the soundtrack to the season for many Morzine mountain revellers, and their nights became notorious for packed bars and wild skankin'.
A year on and their journey is taking them on up the success road with a session for Balcony TV in Chamonix offering them the stage to promote their new track 'First World Issues' ahead of their EP release this summer. Catch the session for yourself below, and tell 'em you love it if you do and spread the feel-good vibes.
