Labra Bros
Umojah Nation

A vibrant Akron-based reggae band that has operated in the Akron-Cleveland scene for over 14 years. While seeded in Jamaican roots and dancehall, they possess an original style in reggae all its own. This seven-piece band is led by huband-wife team Tracey and Stefano Nguma, and features Egan Ammerman, Ceco Selinas, Brian Marsh, Ali Boyd, and Junior Brown.

Labra Brothers
The Labra Brothers have established themselves regionally, not only as the standard within their core genre of Latin Funk & Soul, but as a dynamic and diverse juggernaut of musical presentation. To see this band at a live stage show event is to experience an urge to dance that even the strongest can’t resist. It may even leave you wondering if there are open positions remaining within the family.
