Chinese Connection Dub Embassy (CCDE) has a wild array of musical backgrounds from Classical, R&B, Jazz, Gospel all the way to Street Rock and Hip-Hop. Omar (Lead Vocals/Bassist) and Donnon ‘One Drop’ (Drummer/Vocals) hold the riddim down that will take you to another zone of mental euphoria & groove that you’ll feel deep in your soul. Joseph (I-Dae Han) Keyboardist/Vocals) and David ‘Dutch’ (Guitarist/Vocals) bring Heavy DUB and smooth melodies that that will leave you speechless. They have been called one of the hardest working Reggae artists in the Mid-South because of their determination to bring unity back through Reggae Music, especially in a time that glorifies the negativity more that positive vibes. Since the rise of the band in 2011 their accolades have been as such they were the first Reggae band to play FedEx Forum, Flux Fest,Cooper Young Fest, Beale Street Music Festival, and opening up for Hip-Hop and Reggae Giants such as Big Sean, The Wailers, T-Pain, Collie Buddz, Freddie McGregor and many more across the Country. Since the release of their first album, ‘The Firm Foundation’, CCDE are showing no signs of slowing down and when it comes to new Vibes CCDE are bringing new material to 2018 and beyond.

The members of CCDE come from all over the world from NY, New Orleans, Memphis, and they’ve come to add a new spin on classic reggae tunes to Memphis while offering their own hard-hitting originals, all the while restoring love and unity in their great city. They’ve been together for five years, and these days they’re tighter than ever. From their music to the way they carry ourselves, they’re here to motivate and encourage the world to think more and stop reacting to Babylon’s strongholds. This group’s force will only move through Jah guidance and the love and support of a community dedicated to unity.
