Introduced to Katachafire, a New Zealand reggae band featuring only Maori musicians, yours truly was unwittingly reminded of the archive footage of Bob Marley, who, upon arrival in New Zealand was greeted with a traditional powhiri. Katchafire is already popular in Oceania and parts of Asia and now also wants to conquer the European continent. And what better an introduction than a 'Best Of' compilation? 'Best So Far' contains tracks from Katchafire's four previous albums: solid melodic reggae with a poppy edge, including love songs ('Meant To Be', 'Love Letter'), ganja tunes ('Sensimillia', 'Collie Herb Man') and more conscious tracks.
