Buddha Council seeks to make music in all formats and mediums, not only as a band, but more precisely as a musicians’ collective. Our objective is to contribute to the music community at large by enhancing and encouraging the musical collaborative experience. This provides fans with unique listening experiences from artists they already know, as well as helping them discover new artists through the Buddha Council. For the musicians involved, it provides the opportunity to reach more fans through the Council.
In 2013, the thriving Virginia reggae scene gave birth to Buddha Council. Originally functioning as a reggae think-tank comprised of members from Virginia Beach based bands, Bimini Rd. and Session Rockers, the band quickly found footing in their own unique take on Future Roots music. The band released their debut self-titled album in 2014 and followed up with their sophomore studio album, “Consider This,” in late 2015. Buddha Council’s music has evolved into the perfect balance of a band continually pushing genre boundaries while simultaneously rediscovering forgotten rhythms of reggae’s yesteryear.
