Formed in 2001 and named after Israeli dub artist/producer Badawi’s 1996 release, Bedouin’s debut album Root Fire (2001) received critical acclaim before sophomore album Sounding a Mosaic (2004) sent the band global, culminating in a series of sold-out shows and festival appearances around the world. The album featured the hit single “When The Night Feels My Song,” produced by punk-hardcore royalty Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains and the band won their first JUNO Award in 2006 for Canada’s Best New Group, along with numerous accolades around Europe.
Follow-up album Street Gospels (2007) earned a “Pop Album of the Year” nomination and “Video of the Year” nomination for the single “Walls Fall Down” at the 2008 JUNO’s as well as three Much Music Video Award nominations for their video for “Until We Burn in the Sun” in 2009.
Bedouin Soundclash released their fourth studio album Light the Horizon in 2010. Produced by DJ and Philadelphia-based musicologist King Britt. The album featured French-Canadian singer-songwriter Coeur de pirate.
“Salt Water,” from the band’s upcoming full-length album, MASS, brings together Bedouin’s rich influences from the celebratory spirit of New Orleans jazz and post-punk to soca and pop. A track that fizzes and bristles with Jay and Eon’s mastery of melody, it features Preservation Hall Jazz Band on horns and Mike Dillon (Les Claypool) on marimba.
Bedouin Soundclash have toured the world and shared the stage with No Doubt, Ben Harper, Damian Marley, The Roots, The Interrupters, Gogol Bordello, Bad Brains, Thievery Corporation and more
