TRACK OF THE ISSUE – OJBA RASTA: JOLLY GOOD

Published July 7, 2011

Summer has finally threatened to show itself, somewhat, and if you like reggae, Ojba Rasta’s new single Jolly Good is the perfect track to put on for a nice garden BBQ party. Climbing the charts in Iceland, this feel good song has even reportedly received some plays in reggae homestead Jamaica.   
The ten-piece band formed in 2009 boasts an impressive roster of musicians who also play in a handful of other great bands. They plan to play a bunch of shows this summer, and they are currently working on their debut album, slated for release out this fall. Until then you can enjoy ‘Jolly Good’ on repeat, it’s kind of that kind of song.
In case you were wondering about the band name, Ojba Rasta, not only does sound like a reggae band, but it’s also a play on the word “ojbarasta”, which is Icelandic for something like, ‘eww gross’.
