    • Synopsis
    • In 2015, Jamaican Grammy award winning singer and producer Richie Stephens started speaking with Italian reggae singer and producer duo Rankin Lele and Papa Leu about a new musical mission. In a time where complex musical mashups and crossing genres are the norm, they focus on the simplicity of the sweet ska sound and crossing cultures.
      “Richie Stephens & Ska Nation Band" is Jamaica and Italy coming together in the mighty name of Ska”, according to Richie Stephens. They have taken to the service as cultural ambassadors of the worldwide Ska Nation!
      Ska is the second sound originated in Jamaica, but the first to sweep the world internationally. Fittingly, in April 2016, Richie Stephens & the Ska Nation Band released its first album “Internationally”, and began blazing a trail of fyah-full performances from the Jamaica Sumfest stage in 2017 to Germany’s Summerjam slot in 2018.
      ROCK THE WORLD is the first tribute to this amazing Jamaican-Italian creative collaboration!
