When London and Manchester were still on the Britpop scene, Bristol calmed down, but there was one act who rose through the ranks of indie guitarists to gain greater recognition. Jabulani Black Roots were one of the many that flourished in the early 1990s, propelling Bristol's party scene to new heights and being associated with a sound system called Tarzan High Priest. They played original music and songs from the early to late 1990s, changing hands several times during a period in which a number of bands rose and fell, from Dizzy Gillespie and the Dixie Chicks to indie rock bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Their reggae roots touched the nerve of the time in a time of unrest and social conflict in the 1980s, and the music from Bristol that followed was hugely influential.
