The Hip Abduction

*Due to the severe weather forecast in the Charlotte area on 9/1/16, River Jam with The Hip Abduction has been cancelled. 

The Hip Abduction is an afro-pop/ indie-rock band hailing from St. Petersburg, FL. The sextet places a heavy emphasis on African stringed instruments (kora, ngoni) mixed with dub-reggae bass lines and funky afro-beat percussion making their tropically influenced high-energy performances stand out on festival lineups nationwide. In 2013, The Hip Abduction released a self-titled debut album which landed them at the top of the iTunes and Billboard reggae charts. THA is currently in the studio and looking forward to a follow-up full-album release in early 2016.
