pure riddim attack taking over
PRATO is a Reggae/Ska/Good Vibes World Music band from South Florida which was part of a very important Reggae/Alternative movement in the beginning of the 2000’s. The band was founded by Leba (bass/vocals) and Alexandre Stry (guitar/vocals).
The band released their first CD (Lejos de Casa) in Spanish under the label Fabrika/Sony BMG Music in 2005. The hit “Inmigracion” reached Top 10 for many weeks playing on the radio in the US and Latin America. The band played in various respected venues, like the famous Viper Room in Los Angeles, Billboard Live and international festivals along with bands such as: Paralamas do Sucesso, Natiruts, Bacilos, Rabanes, Los Piojos, Izabella Rocha, among others.
PRATO, which is the acronym for Pure Riddim Attack Taking Over, has their own style, with a fun upbeat vibe and cool lyrics mixing a heavy tone of Reggae and Rock with a Brazilian/Latin touch. It has influences from classic Rudeboy/Rocksteady all the way to the 90’s Reggae/Ska/Punk/Hip Hop movements.
