Jahlistic is a 4-piece Latin, Reggae Roots band based from Charlotte, North Carolina. Their sound is easy identified by the heavy Drum and Bass driven structures, Smooth Soulful Voices, and a strong Reggae Roots Rhythm Section. Their sound is also highly influenced by their Latin Roots as three of the members are from South America.
The concept of “Jahlistic” was born in 2007 when brothers Ezequiel Aloise and Joel Aloise put a band together to perform in a talent show. During this time, the brothers were still discovering their musical identity and their mission with music.
Lead singer, Tania Aloise came along in 2011 when she married Joel Aloise. The band took form, and they started performing in local events from time to time.
Many musicians passed through the band, but it was not until 2013 when Josh Livingston (Guitarist) joined the band, and Jahlistic was officially formed. Since then, Jahlistic has been creating original music and performing regularly in the Carolinas as well as other states.
Jahlistic released their Debut, EP Album “Higher Places” on July of 2015.
Since then, they have been performing in well-known regional reggae festivals and have shared the stage with leading East-coast reggae acts. In 2014, they performed in the renowned Woodbury Reggae Festival in Woodbury, Connecticut, which is the oldest annual Reggae festival in the United States and shared the stage with international reggae acts. In 2016 Jahlistic was the opening act and only band to share the stage for one of the most famous band in South America, GONDWANA. In the present, Jahlistic is planning a regional tour for 2017 and creating new music for what will be their full-length Debut Album in the same year.
Their EP Album “Higher Place Ep” is currently available on Itunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Music, and many other online streaming services.
