International Reggae All Stars spin mellow into gold

The International Reggae All Stars are brothers from other countries.

Despite having members from different parts of Jamaica, Trinidad, Venezuela and Ghana, IRAS (pronounced Eye-Rahz, as in ‘Rasta’) considers the Minneapolis reggae scene to be its home.
