Redska - биография, альбомы, песни, клипы

RedSka is is an Italian ska band formed in 2001 in Romagna. In 2004 following their victory in a band contest called “conKorso” they publish their first official album Mi son sbagliato nel confondermi (“I was mistaken while confusing myself”) (Sana Records / Audioglobe), a blend of ska-punk with strong influences of californian ska, mixed with reggae, raggamuffin, swing, blues, hardcore e rocksteady sounds. There are already some relevant participation such as The Hormonauts and Enri.

In 2007 the album has got republished in an updated version including a few live performances and video-clip with One Step Records, independent label, founded by the band’s singer. The support of the audience, independent radios and other underground italian bands allows the album to be quite successful in Europe as well. After this release the band has an increasingly busy tour schedule all around Italy and the first experiences in continental europe.

In 2008 the RedSka are out with their second album, Le mie prigioni (“My prisons”) One Step Records / Maninalto! / Venus; One Step Records / Mad Butcher Records for Germany), a rougher and more aggressive work both in suond and lyrics. The album houses the collaborations of famous artists in the italian music scenario, such as Banda Bassotti, Matrioska, Los Fastidios, The Good Fellas. The lyrics, save for a few songs are centered mainly on politics, religion, work and against wars and racial discriminations stressing more firmly the band’s social commitment.

With the last album the band embarked on a long tour, with many gigs in Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France and Czech Republic aside the usual italian ride.
