Here’s from the band’s friendster page:

TROPICAL DEPRESSION specializes in a unique brand of domestic and exotic riddims that of world-wise, conscious and spiritual music. Growing out of the band members’ love and affinity for the Reggae sounds of Jamaica and its offshoots, TROPICAL DEPRESSION created a new idiom in music and at the same time functioning as the gateway in introducing the essential reggae riddim to the country.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION built a reputation for creativity that saw reggae fused with local themes. As The Beat described its first release KAPAYAPAAN, it “shows reggae has taken root in the Philippines and displays throughout the imprint of inspirator Bob Marley while containing elements no other reggae band I know of could draw from.” Chuck Foster continues, “the bulk of the album is sung in the band’s native language and is some of the prettiest music I’ve heard in a while.” TROPICAL DEPRESSION’s second release AABOT DIN TAYO further affirmed its unique reggae synthesis - not exactly east, not west either.

“Seeing TROPICAL DEPRESSION live is an experience of a lifetime that one should not miss out on” (Sevilla, The Philippine Star). The band has headlined several concerts throughout the Philippines. Its performing career includes some 50 dates a year, at venues ranging from clubs to music festivals; from high profile shows to benefit concerts–all to the delight of enthusiastic audiences, captivated by TROPICAL DEPRESSION’s infectious riddims.

But behind such fearsome experimentations in ethnic sounds lies a serious purpose as TROPICAL DEPRESSION continues to live up to the universal message of reggae music:
“One World, One Love, One People.”
