Sinsemilia – Douanier

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Sinsemilia, also known as SinsĂ©, is a reggae band that was formed in Grenoble in 1990. The name of the group is very similar to the cannabis plants sensimilia, which are the female plants that have not been fertilized by a male plant and thus without seeds. The group first used this name in concert at the FĂȘte de la Musique in 1991, referring to the reggae album Sinsemilia by Black Uhuru. This first concert drew one thousand attendants, and in the following fifteen years more than one million albums have been sold.
