Track Of The Issue – Ojba Rasta: ‘Baldursbrá’

Ojba Rasta is an eleven-piece dub/reggae band formed in 2009. In addition to obvious Jamaican influences, the band says they are inspired by world and film music. Performing all over Reykjavík since their inception, the band has grown quite popular and received much critical acclaim. Indeed, when Grapevine throws a party, we like to book them.
Right now, the band is working on their first album, which they plan to release this summer. Bassist Arnljótur wrote this track, called “Baldursbrá.” He tells us that it’s a personal love song, but whether or not you understand the Icelandic lyrics, its upbeat melody is sure to put you in a good mood. Log on to and let yourself be taken away by Ojba Rasta’s pulsating flow!
