G.Ras is a conscious warrior of righteousness, peace and justice, always bringing serious message to the audience. His lyrics and style together with the tough riddims (mostly own original, but also some international ones) played by the band result top-class deejay, singjay and singer-style dancehall, roots and lovers tunes. Riddim Colony is regularly playing in its hometown Budapest, all around Hungary and abroad as well. The high artistic level, the powerful positive message, the energetic stage show have become their flavour, that’s why they are permanent guests of many festivals and clubs.
They've shared the stage with several reggae legends like Max Romeo, Sizzla Kalonji, Perfect, Mykal Rose, Yellowman, House of Riddim, and in the summer of 2009 the band played with great success among Glen Washington, Anthony B and Third World on the main stage of Rototom Sunsplash Festival.
