With their positive message, uplifting melodies and unique refreshing approach to Reggae, this San Francisco-based band represents a new generation of Reggae and World music. Born in Jerusalem, Israel with Greek and Iraqi roots, Lior Ben-Hur has traveled to over a dozen countries where he spent time learning, performing and sharing experiences with musicians and artists around the globe.
Since 2004, Lior has made his home in San Francisco, CA. He formed this band in 2011, which in 2012 released an eclectic World music album under the name Sol Tevél. The album sheds new light with contemporary interpretations of old Jewish texts, ideals and mysticism.
Along with his 7-piece band, Lior Ben-Hur continues to focus on his passion for Reggae music, which has been a key inspiration on his musical creativity and spirituality. Collaborating with leading artists such as Jah Levi and Marcus Urani (of Groundation), the band released their self-titled EP in June 2015. They are currently recording a full-length album, produced by Marcus Urani that reveals their deep passion for Reggae and demonstrates their ability to perform high-energy roots music. The album is scheduled for release in 2016.
