Originally from Martinique, Yoni Alpha dit Paille became, in a few years, one of the leaders of the French dancehall scene. In particular, he won the ITUNES Musiques du Monde in 2015 with his EP "Retour de Flammes".
Following the BABEL MED festival in Marseille where Paille and his group literally shook up a room full of festival-goers, the idea of creating a group with multiple musical talents became reality. Red Ties Gang, a group of passionate people, has been performing alongside Straw for more than a year. Often described as an outstanding "mooder", the Straw Man and the Red Ties Gang will set the scene for the Ragga Kwéyol Festival on fire!
Latest singles: No We Can not, Freestyle 2 And Half Cuckoo, Verbal Violence.
