Legendary emcee, producer and multi-instrumentalist Captain Imon Starr drives his latest project Olmecha Supreme to the extreme of musical greatness, creating undisputedly, the freshest and most fiercely talented live band you have yet to hear.
Starr describes the sound as 'afro futuristic roots music', a definition that defies genre classification, encompassing the past, present and future of all genres born of Africa, bringing traditional rhythms and knowledge to the digital realm.
Olmecha Supreme live delivers a dramatic and high-energy performance of mesmerizing, live afro-futuristic roots music, transforming even the shyest of peoples into dancing machines. Fusing the traditional Afro-rhythms of roots, rock, reggae, hip-hop, soul, funk and afro-beat. Olmecha takes the audience to a place of pure, soul-filled enjoyment.
The Olmech’s have a solid reputation for stunning live performances, such as opening for hip-hop legends De La Soul, headlining alongside Hollie Smith at the Concert for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament and rocking the crowds at One Love ‘07, Soundsplash, and the Parihaka festival. In Australia they have headlined the Kuranda Roots, and Island Vibe festivals, and played a main stage slot at the 160,000+ people Woodford festival in Australia. This on top of an innumerable amount of community-minded fundraisers and youth focus events represent the Olmech's commitment to progress, innovation and professionalism.
