Biography:
Zvuloon Dub System, Israel's leading World-Reggae band, emerges from a multicultural middle-eastern music scene, singing in English and Amharic.

"Zvuloon Dub System demonstrates conclusively why they are Israel's top reggae band, proving great roots music today finds some of its finest expressions outside its Jamaican homeland. Touching on many of the major themes of conscious reggae with authentic rhythms and tasty lead vocals, Zvuloon deserves a wide international audience."
Roger Steffens, Founding Chairman, Reggae Grammy Committee

Zvuloon Dub System is an 8 piece band with some of the cream of Israeli underground musicians. Adopting their name from one of the twelve tribes of Israel, the band was formed in 2006 by the Smilan brothers.
They shared the same passion for roots reggae and dub, with influences from a variety of music styles, like Ethiopian jazz and rare grooves from the 70’s, USA's soul, funk and jazz, alongside with Israeli mizrahi (oriental) music.


Similarly to the major producers of reggae, like Lee Perry and King Tubby, the band is also keen on creating not just their own music but their own sound. All their tracks are produced, recorded and mixed in the band's studio, representing a unique blend of a rich cultural heritage, which can be heard in the debut album, "Freedom Time”.
The message of the band is peace, love, solidarity and equal rights to all, which, coming from such a controversial country, is spot on!

In early 2013 the band released "Weed Out" new 12" single feat. new songs from international reggae stars Cornell Campbell and Ranking Joe.
This year ZDS has unveiled their Ethio-Reggae project. Featuring a fusion of Reggae and Ethiopian music from the golden age of the 70's in addition to their regular original roots Reggae set.
The band backed some of the top reggae singers visiting Israel such as the lead singer of "Israel Vibration", Apple Gabriel and UK DJ Brother Culture.

The band opened the stage for some international reggae singers such as Don Carlos, Barrington Levy, Alpha Blondy and Groundation. In 2011 the band toured in Canada and Cyprus and played all around Israel including in the biggest local festivals.

Lead singer, Gili Yalo, who was born in Ethiopia, walked through the desert at the age 4 on an exhausting journey with his family to the promised land - Israel.
Going through dramatic and extreme situations, he sang all the way to his beloved.
Growing up in a tough neighborhood in Ramla, he is now a role model, to the challenged youth, of all origins.
In June 2014, the band released the new album "Anbessa Dub" while the new EP "Cornel Campbell meets Zvuloon Dub System" is out today!
