Imagine being in the house for the ultimate reggae concert headlined by Bob Marley and friends.
Bob opens the show setting the mood for a night of stellar entertainment. Steel Pulse performs, then to the crowd’s surprise, Dennis Brown takes the stage. After D. Brown rocks, he invites U-Roy to come up and sing. The Wailers, Dennis Brown, and daddy U-Roy take turns thrilling the audience.
Next, on stage, we have Culture with original singer, Joseph Hill at his peak. Freddie McGregor joins in to deliver one of his greatest hits. Peter Tosh follows with two of his notorious numbers. Bob and U-Roy return to partake in the elevating vibes before making way for Frankie Paul.
F.P. displays crowd control and exemplifies dancehall style as the crowd jumps and sings out loud. The Steel Pulse band returns to contribute more musical excitement infused with meaning. Then to close the show, the legend, Ms. Lauryn Hill shuts it down as only L Boogie could.
Now that would be a bucket-list concert experience!

Who’s in your Top 5 for Reggae?
Reggae artist SIZZLA
Powerhouse production team, Yaga Sounds, features Sizzla Kalonji with the new tune DBM (Dem Bad Mind) currently available on iTunes. While Sizzla is constantly releasing songs throughout the year, this trio aspires to take this one from a major buzz on the streets to the international market.
DBM was premiered on Large Up and Reggaeville last week, two of the largest Reggae sites in the world. Sizzla delivers a heavy message over a driving up-tempo riddim, “You have some people go on like them are the best, all them do is fight against the progress, tell da wicked man say dem just can’t test, tell dem life over death….Dem Bad Mind.”
Dubbed as a hard-hitting dance hall tune, DBM gives a hardcore message. It speaks against negative people and negative situations, while promoting a good positive environment and positive energy. Playfully at the end Sizzla teases with an unpredictable ending for the ladies.
Yaga Sounds member, EchoSlim describes the message, “Dem Bad Mind is deep in turns of all the social issues that are going on with the Ferguson Riots, the murder of Mike Brown and Mario Deane, all the way to Trayvon Martin to as far back to even Emmett Till. It represents injustice happening to people all over the world. It speaks to everyone that has an unjust way of thinking from politicians to police officers to every day people. No one is exempt, from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low.”
“The riddim is going to be one of the baddest riddims of the year. This track should be one that the DJ’s will like and will turn up the parties. It can fit in any time of early or late juggling. The lyrics and the riddim fit in for everyday life, everyone can relate to it. Look out for more bad riddims that we will be releasing in the future,” expresses one of the members of Yaga Sounds, Joshua “Gappo” Manning.
Yaga Sounds is currently made up of Flexx, a Dominican and world-renowned engineer that works with Flo Rida, Lauryn Hill, Robbie Shakespeare and others. EchoSlim is a Trinidadian that has toured the world with Black Violin under the moniker DJ TK. Gappo is a Jamaican and the son of legendary reggae singer Donald Manning of the Abyssians and is currently the keyboard player for Beres Hammond. Yaga Sounds is an unorthodox sound crew. A hybrid of a sound system and a live band, aimed to spread West Indian culture and music around the world.

Musician/Singer/Songwriter, Fashion Designer, Visual Artist, Cen’C Love is a 21st century renaissance woman.
Born in America to Caribbean parents, Cen’C was raised between Kingston and Atlanta spending time equally between the two.
In Atlanta, she attended the Dekalb Scool of the Arts. There along with talents such as young R&B crooner Lloyd and professional dancer Saidah Nairobi among others, she studied dance, drama, writing and was trained in classical voice by Jamaican born opera singer, Mrs. Dawn-Marie James nee Virtue.
Cen’C has the sultry voice and soulful sounds of a Billie Holiday, the musicianship of Lauryn Hill and the verbal wit of Jill Scott.
For Cen’C Love art is a lifestyle. Traveling throughout most of her summers with her fashion designer/dancer mom she attended art and trade shows around the US where she received the inspiration that she now applies to her work.
None of this should be surprising since she is the prodigy of the illustrious Wailer family of Reggae and the daughter of founding member of the acclaimed group, Neville Livingston, AKA Bunny Wailer.
The Wailer legacy is clearly apparent in Cen’C’s socially conscious songs such as SYSTEM about the “Babylon” matrix-type control system, and THESE LIES about women with low self esteem and their obsession with artificial identities. Her message of love is poignant and inspiring in songs like PARADISE and HEY YOU, stripping away the fear of baring our souls to love.
In addition to music, Cen’C embraces a natural holistic lifestyle through the practices of Yoga, Meditation, Qi-Gong, and holistic nutrition. She is a very environmentally conscious woman who was raised in a green household before green became the buzzword it is today.
Always on a quest for WISDOM and “OVASTANDING”, Cen’C loves to love and shares this love through her music.
In her own words:
“I was born free with the real truth inside of me,
Guided by the will of The Almighty.”
