Lion Sound was born in the City of Geneva in 2004. It all started
from the love of reggae music of five12 years old youth living in
the country side of Geneva. Following the reggae activity in Geneva,
with shows from Raspect Promotion and many Dancehall Party, and
a short work of Nico at Reggae Fever shop, one of the main Reggae
record shop in Geneva. The idea of creating their own sound started.
They begin to make some little dances with friends around Geneva
and start a Radio Show on Reggae-Vibes.fr with Irie Crew, Standtall
and many french veteran sound.
From 2004 to 2008, many members split from the crew but Nico kept
the faith, and itís during the summer 2008 that Nico met Jannali,
who is now the selector of the sound. From then the sound was composed
of two men, Nico (MC) and Jannali (selector).??Since Jannali joined
the crew, everything start to move faster. In 2008, Little Lion
Sound made their own Sound system, wich stick to the jamaican tradition.
