About the band
RASTABAN is a Tribal Folk project, a unique mix of traditional folk melodies, tribal vibes and world music elements.
Photographer: Le Poulpe
Their musical inspiration comes from Celtic and Nordic trads, French medieval tunes, melodies from the Balkan lands, Oriental music, as well as trance and tribal rhythms from many primordial cultures around the world, combined with the energy inherited from their previous rock or even metal projects.
