Cheko & The Lion Rockers
from Comox Valley BC
Cheko And The Lion Rockers, coming out of the Cowichan Valley are one of the West Coast’s strongest links to roots reggae and Rastafari culture. The band rocks a classic reggae sound, anchored by Chekos heartfelt, conscious lyrics. A native of Mexico City, Cheko infuses his ultra rootsy sound with the skank rhythms he discovered in the barrios of his hometown. Through his own band, Skanky Roots (formed in 1999), his collaborative work with musicians like Los Rastrillos and Ali & the Budz, and now the Lion Rockers, Cheko has honed his musical chops into a supreme laser beam of reggae brightness.
