Bio

Since their debut gig in May 2009, keshie has had an overwhelming response to their high vibing happy music. Inspired by the street music of West Africa, keshie have focussed on bringing the positivity and playfulness back in the the Australian music scene. Their favourite place to spend time is at festivals as this was the reason the members collaborated in the first place. The flavour that keshie brings to the table has been tailored specifically for the festival scene. Having toured around VIC, NSW and TAS - keshie are preparing to release their upcoming EP in months to come... In the meantime, enjoy a taste of what's to come with their new single "Dancehall Girls."
