Bandista is a music collective established in May 2006 in Istanbul, Turkey. Bandista has its roots in the cultural diversity of Anatolia; though the band's presence clearly declares its internationalist approach. The sound of Bandista varies from Django to Reggae, from Bratsch to Ska, Dub and Afro-Beat. The basic formula of the band is to deconstruct whatever sound, text and image possible in favour of a border and class free world. Every Bandista performance is a situationist experiment of rage and rapture. Bandista has performed in several festivals, demonstrations and clubs in Turkey and abroad. offical website, http://tayfabandista.org. Read more on Last.fm.
