Off Beat Xperiment (OBX) is one of the most attractive, brave and original bands from Barcelona. An instrumental group made up of six musicians with a long history on the Catalan scene.
The project starts from music with Jamaican roots and fuses it with all kinds of styles, making OBX’s live show an explosion of rhythms and textures, where there is room for improvisation and melody, and a clear invitation to dance.
One of the objectives of Off Beat is to bring Reggae, Ska and Rocksteady music closer to the 21st century, using new sounds and harmonies through their own compositions and experimentation.
The band was born in 2020, and in April of the same year, they released their first EP “Interesting Times”. Since then, despite the pandemic context, the group has continued to progress, with new releases and concerts that have been very well received by the public.
During 2022 OBX has graduated as a band playing at various festivals (including the Voll Damm Jazz Festival in Barcelona) and forming part of the regular programming of the historic Harlem Jazz Club.
