Dub Colossus are a band from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the UK. Their sound fuses traditional azmari music, ethio-jazz and dub, and reggae. It is the creation of Nick Page - aka Dubulah - who co-wrote, played on, programmed and produced 3 albums to date. It resulted from an invitation to visit and stay in Addis for two weeks by Dan Harper. Nick stayed with Dan and his family, and Dan introduced him to musicians he knew from his work on Invisible System, Dan's Ethiopian fusion project released on Harper Diabate Records. These musicians went on to become the core of Dub Colossus, including Mimi (Sintayehu Zenebe), Teremage Woretaw, Feleke Hailu, Tsedenis G-Marqos and Samuel Yirga. Without Dan's studio, spirit of resistance and hospitality, Nick would not have made the first Dub Colossus album, although most of the backing tracks were written in London before arrival in Addis so it unexpectedly became a solo project of Nick's.
