The Conquerors Reggae Band is all about roots Reggae, promoting a positive message through their music. The band plays roots reggae music, including ska and rock reggae, but mostly focuses on the roots sound.

The Conquerors performs regularly at Cape Town Reggae festivals such as Annual Paarl Rasta Cultural Festival and Monwabisi Reggae Legends Sunsplash. A highlight for the band was opening the 2017 edition of jamming reggae fest headlined by Gentlemen (Germany) which was backed by Azania, SA’s finest reggae outfit. The proceeds of this event went to the Bridges School of music in Langa. Another highlight was playing at the Lucky Dube tribute headline by Nkulee Dube at Athlone Stadium, Cape Town. 2019 the band did a reggae at the market tour whereby they performed at some of Cape Town’s popular markets with the objective of contributing to nation building and social cohesion. Last year the band had a breakthrough by being selected to perform at the 2020 edition of Cape Town Jazzathon and the V&A Waterfront Take the Stage series. The band also performs at various markets across Cape Town, Mojo Market and Legit Lit Market being their favourite spots where you can catch them live.

The band is growing form strength to strength and continues to push the message of one love, peace and unity through their original roots’ reggae music.
