A star-filled peace concert extravaganza for the upcoming Miami Reggae Festival celebration with AKAE BEKA, JAH9, LOCOS POR JUANA, DJ NURSTACRISS & RHYTHM FLOW as Rockers Movement offers up a jam-packed cavalcade under the stars at North Beach Bandshell, an evening of peace, love & unity to raise awareness on extreme poverty.

Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty on Friday, March 15, 2019 during the Winter Music Conference for a powerful night of reverence, livity, peace and unity – expanding consciousness through music, food and charity.
This year is headlined by the legendary Roots band from St. Croix Akae Beka (formerly Midnite), Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. Much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does lead singer Vaughn Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, his personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in his newly declared name from the Book of Enoch: Akae Beka, a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same.
Also performing from Jamaica Jah9 and the Dub Treatment, deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.

Just added GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY nominated bilingual band Locos Por Juana, most notably recognized for their high energy live performances and unique fusion of reggae, funk, cumbia, salsa, and rock. LPJ’s sound is a hybrid that incorporates the sounds of their heritage and upbringing.
Miami based Rhythm Flow, zen trance dub will pulse through the crowd, raising the vibration Colombian Zurich Based DJ Nustacris maintains the positive vibes throughout the night. Continuing the tradition of collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need, the Miami Reggae Festival partners with Miami charity Hecho en Casa, Visual art displayed echoes sentiments felt throughout the human experience and plant-based and cruelty-free dishes complement the compassionate atmosphere.
Reggae music, a music now recognized as world heritage music by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) brings together people from all walks of life in the spirit of “One Love” for an evening of sharing in culture and healing.

Tickets start at $22 in advance plus two non-perishable food items for entry.
