Brand New Colorado Blues Twisted Reggae-Rock, without the side-effects.

Zolopht composes a heavy blend of reggae, blues, rock & bluegrass influences. With three-piece harmonies Zolopht creates a sound that is diverse and very much their own. They have been a staple in the Colorado music scene since 2010.

pH Balanced is the highly anticipated first full length album to be independently released by Zolopht Music.

16 original tracks, 4 months of recording & countless hours of mixing/mastering – pH Balanced is undoubtedly an album to add to your collection.

As if it weren't enough to play any one style of music; by not limiting their sound to anything specific, their sonic experience goes beyond any one genre. We all know music is more than an identity; it's encompassed in everything and is as diverse as the people who listen to it. With pH Balanced you are invited to open up your ears and welcome Zolopht into your mind and soul.

Lior Ben Hur
With their positive message, uplifting melodies and a unique refreshing approach to Reggae, this San Francisco-based band represents a new generation of Reggae and World music.

Born in Jerusalem, Israel with Greek and Iraqi roots, Lior Ben-Hur has traveled to over a dozen countries where he spent time learning, performing and sharing experiences with musicians and artists around the globe.
Since 2004, Lior has made his home in San Francisco, CA. He formed this band in 2011, which in 2012 released an eclectic World music album under the name Sol Tevél. The album sheds new light with contemporary interpretations of old Jewish texts, ideals and mysticism.

Along with his 8-piece band, Lior Ben-Hur continues to focus on his passion for Reggae music, which has been a key inspiration on his musical creativity and spirituality. In June 2015, the band released their self-titled Reggae EP, and have since shared the stage with legendary Roots Reggae artists such as; Stephen Marley, Black Uhuru, Tarrus Riley, Groundation, Richie Spice, Israel Vibration and Don Carlos.

In February 2017, Lior Ben-Hur and his San Francisco-based band, Sol Tevél, released a full-length album titled, So I Wander. Following the album’s release, it debuted at #14 on Billboard charts for Top Reggae Albums.

Produced by Marcus Urani (of Groundation), So I Wander features leading artists such as; Kumar Bent (of Raging Fyah), Jah Levi, Yossi Fine, Iraqi-Israeli world music expert Yair Dalal, and Palestinian rapper, Saz. The album reveals Lior Ben-Hur deep passion for Reggae, and demonstrates the band’s ability to perform high-energy roots music.
Contraband began in August 2009. Since then, they have developed a unique fusion of Ska and Reggae reminiscent of the Skatalites with modern Jazz and Jam influences. Their fun and energetic music has been enjoyed all over Colorado, playing everything from Bob Marley to Lady Gaga. They hope you enjoy what you hear!
