Kush and Bloodfiyah Angels provide elemental roots-reggae music that pays homage to a multitude of reggae's historical greats from Burning Spear, Steel Pulse, Aswad, and more, yet sets forth an international, multi-lingual originality that has not been seen in reggae music for decades. In 2001, several members of the San Diego Rasta community banded together to create Bloodfiyah Angels. Their goal was and is to use the vehicle of music to uplift the masses and to uphold the notions of international morality, the preservation of life and family values. Through discipline and dedication they formed a tight unit that earned the respect of San Diego musicians and live Reggae audiences. Between 2001 and 2003, the band specialized in roots-based dub and developed a loyal fan base. During this time, the band members also individually performed and recorded with such artists as Johnny Osborne, Half Pint, Mikey Dread, Edi Fitzroy, Errol Dunkley, Foundation, Yami Bolo, Tippa Irie, Peter Hunningale, Pato Banton, Capleton, Anthony B, Luciano, Mighty Diamonds, Abyssinians, Sister Nancy, Sister Carol and many more! In 2003 Bloodfiyah Angels met Kush, successful singer-songwriter from Ivory Coast who had recently moved to San Diego. Kush had already gain popularity in his homeland and performed extensively and was looking for the band that would help him spread his message throughout the world. From the first rehearsal, it became obvious that the singer and players of instruments had found the perfect match they had all been looking for. Since then, they have released a fast selling CD "Countdown To The Holy Judgment" recorded by legendary Jamaican producer Scientist, have been nominated for the San Diego music awards, and have performed at various festivals throughout the United States.
