Otentikk Street Brothers


With their songs and live-shows the OSB Crew / Otentikk Street Brothers from the small island of Mauritius proves that there are still place on this planet where there are brilliant musicians making innovative music, that is so far completely unknown to the rest of the world. Their style combines in a masterly way elements of Reggae, Raga and Dancehall with the traditional musical heritage of the Mauritian Creole inhabitants called Sega. The result is an electrifying mixture of 4-bar Reggae-Grooves with the African 3-bar roots of Sega-music. Read more on Last.fm
With their songs and live-shows the OSB Crew / Otentikk Street Brothers from the small island of Mauritius proves that there are still place on this planet where there are brilliant musicians making innovative music, that is so far completely unknown to the rest of the world. Their style combines in a masterly way elements of Reggae, Raga and Dancehall with the traditional musical heritage of the Mauritian Creole inhabitants called Sega. The result is an electrifying mixture of 4-bar Reggae-Grooves with the African 3-bar roots of Sega-music. But the music of the OSB Crew also has everything else great music needs: four MCs that sing and toast like there was no tomorrow, charismatic live presence, and catchy hook-lines and arrangements that don’t need to hide behind the work that comes out of the major studios in the western world. Extra spice is added by the French-Creole language, that is used to denounce the arrogance of Babylon and the ambivalent materialism of today's Zeitgeist. Even though the party-potential of their songs is comparable to that of any Dancehall-act, lyrically the message lies clearly on the consciousness-side of the spectrum, while they never slip into pure agitation and always stay aware of their social responsibilities.

And so you find them equally condemning political mismanagement and police brutality as social ills like excessive alcohol consumption, all of which today are major problems in their homeland.
