Tatanka encapsulates the heavy roots rumble of the Caribbean, while maintaining the pop sensibilities of the dance-oriented electronic sounds from the Britannica-American reggae scenes. These sounds are what fueled the groups newest album, ’Tatanka’. Written over the span of a year and a half, Tatanka recorded their self-titled album at Imperial Sound in San Diego. Reggae rocker Ted Bowne from PASSAFIRE and roots magician The Maad T-Ray of Tribal Seeds feature on a counter-culture wakeup call entitled “The Yard”. Jamaican sing-jay Triston Palmer is heard on a bouncy number labeled “Give Green”. The tune pays homage to never giving up and believing in yourself. E.N Young of Tribal Seeds can also be heard throughout the album. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts and #4 on Billboard’s reggae charts. The positive lyrics and heavy sounds garnered radio air-play all around the globe.
