Ras Lidj as the "God Father of the Regg'Go Movement" ~September 2014
" I appreciate the community leadership Ras Lidj is showing by promoting peace among his brothers and opening the channels of communication with his colleagues about his music. That’s no easy feat in the DC music scene, and the bringing together of go-go and reggae is itself an ambassadorial act."

Ras Lidj is a musician, songwriter, and performer stepping forward to uplift and unify his audience. Combining vibrations of Roots reggae, the raw energy of Dancehall reggae, and the unique percussive elements of Washington DC's own Go-Go scene -- Ras Lidj has a style all his own "Regg'Go". Sometimes you'll find him on the bass, sometimes on percussion, and usually somewhere near the microphone. Ras Lidj has performed in clubs and music festivals across the country. In 1992, Ras Lidj received his name under the guidance and livity of Rastafari. That blessing added a new dimension to Ras Lidj the songwriter. His songs tell stories with a socially conscious edge.
Ras Lidj was born a performer. He started in theater and later developed his musical side with artists and bands like Physical Wundors, Little Benny and the Masters, DJ Lucky, DJ Flexx and The Soul Defender Posse. He's shared the stage with such artists as the Itals, 50 Cent, Junior Marvin and Mobb Deep .
Upon retuning to the Washington DC area in 2004, Ras Lidj released the “Baptismal EP” and formed Deep Band, to musically play and convey his lyrical message live. Together, Ras Lidj and Deep Band continue to move forward branding their style “Regg’Go" as a genre of its own. In 2007, Ras Lidj & Deep Band received the Dennis Brown Achievement Award, at the DC Area Reggae Music Awards. Also, released the “Live Raw and Uncut” CD/ DVD in 2008. Ras Lidj added a new dimension of vocal range and quality to Deep Band, with the singer Mia Harmoni Black, joining in 2010. These days, Ras Lidj is recording in Washington, DC. While performing regularly, Ras Lidj and Deep Band continues to strengthen their increasingly growing fan base locally and abroad.
