Asian Dub Foundation
Breakbeats, sitars, and politically aware rhymes are a heady combination, and just part of Asian Dub Foundation's formula. Add a charismatic Indian toaster, a dancer, and elements of dancehall, punk, and dub, and you've got one of the more unique acts to come out of 1990s London. The sound system got their start playing European festivals alongside acts like Buju Banton, and were aided greatly by public kudos from contemporaries Primal Scream. A major label deal followed, with much touring and a government-sponsored goodwill trip to some of the poorer parts of the world. The initial lineup has changed through the years, but as of the new millennium, the Foundation has remained busy playing gigs, recording, scoring films, and contributing their time and money to political causes and charities.
