The Mehditations, a Kootenay based roots reggae band with jazz/ dub and ska influences, was formed by guitarist/ singer/ lyricist Mehdi Makraz in 2014 after the release of his album Jah Rise by Big Bang productions in Casablanca, Morocco. In 2015, Mehdi moved to Canada and welcomed Drummer and DJ Morgan Adair (AKA Sasquatch) and backup vocalist Syama. The rest of the band’s personnel has fluctuated. As of 2016, it included Peter Alex on bass guitar, Landon Schira on Keyboard and Randy Tapp on saxophone. Mehdi has performed several shows nationally and internationally as an independent professional multi-instrumentalist.
