Gerhana Skacinta

Legendary Kuala Lumpur based Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae & Dub band, Gerhana Skacinta (GSC/Gerhana) emerged from the ska revival scene of Malaysia in the late 1990s. Formed by Edy J Herwan; a skinhead pioneer and legend, the band has amassed an almost cult like following amongst the Malaysian skinhead, mods and indie rock music scene. While third-wave ska bred new faces and new categories; ska-punk, ska-pop, skacore, Gerhana Skacinta stayed the traditional path, remaining faithful to a kind of rootsy purity based on a determination that some music is timeless.
