Four-time Grammy® winner Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, who was once known as the “The Youngest Veteran” by his fellow artists, is now an elder in the game who’s not afraid to speak his mind out of respect for the music and culture he loves. He has established himself as a unique and influential presence in reggae, combining the roots sound of his father’s legendary music with the fast flow and spirit of dancehall and hip-hop.

Ten-time Grammy nominees Third World are no stranger to fusion, setting their blend of soul, R&B, and rock to a reggae beat since 1973. Third World is one of the longest-lived Reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences.

Socially conscious Kabaka Pyramid opens with a fiery, beat-based, and hip-hop-influenced reggae sound built around messages of love, unity, and justice. This Award winning artist has developed a solid global fan-base that connects deeply with the messages in his music, touring extensively over the past 6 years to the largest of Reggae stages around the world.
