The Umojah band emerged on the Cruzan (St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands) scene in 1983, playing to packed houses at clubs, community events and in live concerts. Over the years the band has built a repertoire of popular reggae cover songs as well as original Umojah hits. The current Umojah members are the founding band members and have been writing, arranging and performing together for the entire life of the band.

A popular and dynamic feature of the Virgin Islands community, Umojah has been featured as opening acts for many performing artists over the years including: Beenie Man, Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear, Dennis Brown, Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers, Gregory Issacs, Lisa Lisa & the Cult Jam, Marcia Griffiths, Shaggy, and Third World.

The band’s core members are emotionally mature Rastafarians, who have a wide range of experiences from which to draw. Additionally, this band is versatile, and skilled at providing lead vocals, backup, bass, keyboard, guitar, drums, and percussions.   This initial project is in part, a tribute to Umojah fans in St. Croix, who have supported the band since 1985 as they repeatedly performed to packed audiences.

Our music has a universal appeal and we are confident that it will be well received by culture loving, reggae music audiences worldwide.
