The Roots Daughters were founded in 2009 by a duo of serious soundsystem addicts and roots music lovers from Pula (Croatia). They started out playing and promoting dub/roots music at Ljubljana`s Monday`s Dub Lab evenings at legendary Autonomous Cultural Centre Metelkova Mesto.
After being part of the regional scene for some years, Julie continues their mission when she moved to Berlin in 2013. She meets Jahminta Zulu (Vintage Night Cologne) on the same musical frequency and they decide to join forces.
Heavily inspired by rastafari and jamaican soundsystem culture, the sessions are a space of sharing vibes, knowlegde, developing skills and empowering one another.Both are passionate vinyl collectors who will make you experience Reggae Music in all it’s beauty and versatility – from its foundations to recent releases.
They are regurlarly organizing events, creating a space and platform to express and represent female activists in the scene. Another goal is to give credit and pay tribute to the great female* artists which have been criminally underrated or unheard of in the past by playing their tunes and help spread the message in the music – Equal rights and justice for all!
So far, they have played Sessions in clubs all over Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Prague and Festivals like Dub Camp (F), Öland Roots (S), Fusion (D), Seasplash (HR), Overjam (SLO), Escape the City (HR) and many more.
They have supported Lee „Scratch“ Perry, Jah9, Mad Professor, Earl 16, Sister Audrey, Soom T, OBF feat Shanti D, Feminine Hi-Fi and many more.
Julie is part of Team Rub-a-Dub Berlin and is a resident at Berlin`s longest running weekly Roots & Culture dance „Fiyah Down Below“.
