Asian Dub Foundation Biography

Asian Dub Foundation - the London collective has been pushing back the limits of artistic expression, delivering a series of explosive albums and gigs, for some ten years now. Punk, dub, reggae, ragga, pop... Asian Dub Foundation's music is simultaneously atmospheric and in your face, it's involved and it's rousing, it's catchy and it's cerebral; it connects communities, breaks down clichés, and offers solutions while others merely subscribe to flimsy consensus. They have released three important studio albums: "Facts And Fictions" in 1996, "R.A.F.I." in 1997, and "Community Music" in 2000, while 1998's "Conscious Party" faithfully rendered the intensity of the group's live performances. Last but not least, we should mention "Free Saptal Ram", released as a single in June 1997: a Pakistani man who had simply defended himself against a racial attack in London, found himself accused of murder. In 2002, thanks to tenacity of ADF, and others like them, Satpal Ram was released from prison, but the struggle continues!
