4 Happy Reggae! After many rivers crossed, we at the Mateel Community Center give great thanks in welcoming you to the 29th annual Reggae On The River! Bringing it home to French s Camp, a venue that has served as the festival s spiritual nexus since 1984, when Jack Arthur (our local version of Woodstock s Max Yasgur) first took a risk and offered his land for this now-famous fundraiser. Initially presented as a benefit to rebuild the community center after an arsonist s fire burned its original Fireman s Hall location, throughout the years Reggae On The River has continued to serve as the primary funding source for the Mateel Community Center and all of our varied arts, education, youth, and social service programs. Though all of this almost came to an end in 2006, when a variety of factors forced the cancellation of the festival and a subsequent relocation down stream to the Benbow Lake State Recreation Area, thanks to our fans, our dedicated crew, and a supportive local community, Reggae On The River has persevered and, even in its smaller format, continued to sustain the Mateel. Now, with the Arthur Family Trust again offering their French s Camp property in Jack s honor (and with all permitting hurdles behind us), things have truly come full circle, the way it was intended. And we, in turn, are ready once again to step it up, and to do it in a way that honors our past and improves it for the future- a mantra we call back to the future. Similarly represented in our approach to artist scheduling, we shine light from the roots to the fruits with foundational groups like The Meditations, who played the very first ROTR, to Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid, two of the hottest artists in Jamaica for their first-ever Cali performance. We have also drawn from the far corners of the earth to bring you a selection of diverse acts both preserving traditions and taking the music to exciting new places. Artists like Nkulee Dube (South Africa), Blue King Brown (Australia), Garifuna Collective (Belize), Les Nubians (France/ Brooklyn), MC Zulu (Panama/ Chicago), and Paula Fuga (Hawaii) name but a few of the global representatives. And, of course, it wouldn t be Reggae On The River without roots reggae and Jamaica well represented in top artists like Julian Marley, Morgan Heritage, Tarrus Riley, and Junior Kelly just starting to scratch the surface. Reggae On The River Crew But while music often gets the focus, it is ultimately the experience that matters most. When diverse people come together to share in a weekend of incredible vibes, the magic of community happens, and this is what keeps people coming back to Reggae On The River. The experience is heightened when you know your patronage is also supporting a variety of important non-profit organizations working hard to make our world a better place. And this is why we do it- to sustain ourselves, to sustain our local and global communities, and for the love of reggae music. So thanks to you all! From the seasoned Reggae veteran to the first time attendee, your support is continuing to push the Mateel Community Center forward as we embark on this journey back to the future. This one truly is for you Long live Reggae On The River!

12 Artist Bios FRIDAY, August 2 Woven Roots 12:30 pm The music of Woven Roots is inspired by living close to the earth in the deep wilderness of Humboldt County. The group of life-long musical visionaries is on a quest to create original music channeling powerful lyrics over a harmony of roots reggae and dub styles. Choosing to step away from the mainstream path of the exploitative and destructive technologies of advanced industrial economies, Woven Roots seeks to use music as a vessel to spread a message of reciprocity for the natural systems on earth. Their most recent release, Respect All Things, finds them further communicating about changing toward environmentally sound methods for providing our basic human needs of food, energy and shelter. We are proud to present to you, Woven Roots, modern day, real rebel music straight from our northwest mountaintops serving both as the backing band for Army, as well as playing a set of their own. Without Army 1:10 pm Born Fritzmaurice Williams and raised on St. Croix, Army represents the roots reggae renaissance coming out of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Beginning his musical journey at the age of five in the youth choir at his local church, a love of jazz and other diverse musical styles led him to pick up the saxophone. He went on to study music in New York and grew into an accomplished vocalist before making the surprising decision to join the U.S. Army. After a stint, he chose to refocus on his musical career and returned to St. Croix, where he became actively involved in the VI reggae scene. He was quickly snatched up by Dub Rise Records, who released his debut CD, Yesterday s News, and its follow-up, Struggler, both of which were hailed as refreshingly original. Without getting caught up in the commercialism of modern life, Army, with hits like Rasta Awake seeks spiritual renewal, justice for all people and universal positivity through his simultaneously soothing and invigorating voice. getting caught up in the commercialism of modern life, Army, with hits like Rasta Awake seeks spiritual renewal, justice for all people and universal positivity through his simultaneously soothing and invigorating voice. 12 Mateel Community Center

13 Toussaint The Liberator with Amandla 2:35 pm Toussaint the Liberator has grown from a boy with deep spiritual roots singing at local churches in Indiana to a man embodying the spirit of the historical rebel from whom he takes his name. His lyrics and the call and the response heritage from which he draws his inspiration spark a fire in the hearts of his listeners. Asked to join Soulive in 2006 as their lead singer, Toussaint penned all the lyrics for the group s acclaimed album, No Place Like Soul, and in 2010 he collaborated with St.Croix s I grade Records to release his first solo album, Black Gold. A second solo album, recorded throw-back analogue style by I Dwell Records in Sonoma, CA entitled, Where I Lead (2012), features tracks with Mikey General and Kulcha Knox. Toussaint s latest project, Amandla, is the fruition of a quest wherein Toussaint has finally come together with players who truly represent the message of his music. Showcasing the talent and wisdom of the venerable Ras Iba, Amandla weaves together influences ranging from gospel to neo-soul to hip-hop and boasts years of experience on and off the stage working within the world of music. Soon to release their first album together, Power Link, their stage show meanwhile blazes the way with a new sound in reggae music and is an infectiously spiritual experience leaving crowds dancing and completely enchanted. Roots in a modern time! Sierra Leone s Refugee All Stars 4:15 pm From their humble beginnings in Guinean refugee camps to performing on some of the world s most prestigious stages, this group has risen from the ashes of war to global stardom. In the mid-1990s, upon a Canadian relief agency donating two beat up electric guitars, a single microphone and a meager sound system, Sierra Leone s Refugee All Stars soon became a potent example of the redeeming power of music. Although an acclaimed documentary film gave them an initial boost into the public s attention, their music has since found them having established an identity based as much on skill, imagination and charisma as on their undeniably touching story. Their music translates the hardships they ve endured along with the current global issues of hunger and the gap between rich and poor into bright, danceable melodies. One of Africa s top touring and recording bands, their 2012 release Radio Salone (meaning Sierra Leone in their native language Krio) is their strongest, most confident work to date, representing a new musical high point for the group as it emanates life-affirming positivity; a joyful mix of roots reggae with West African stylings, afrobeat, funk and more. funk Sierra Leon es Refugee All Stars emanate life-affirming positivity; a joyful mix of roots reggae with West African stylings, afrobeat, and more Reggae on the River 13

14 Nkulee Dube 5:55 pm Back by popular demand after an incredible performance at ROTR 2012, and this time in the company of her full South African based band, this daughter of South African reggae icon, Lucky Dube, was born with music in her blood. One of the most exciting additions to the worldwide pop music landscape, no female artist has managed to fuse ethnosoul, jazz, and reggae in one singer/songwriter package like Nkulee Dube. In only a short span of time since entering this challenging industry, she was nominated for a whopping six awards at the 31st Annual International World and Reggae Music Awards (IRAWMA), earning her a coveted place in history as not only the first artist to be nominated for so many awards in a single year, but as the first non-caribbean born artist to be nominated at the awards. A rising star with a fresh blend of roots reggae and neo-soul and a distinctly African sound, Nkulee returns to ROTR this year after having received the IRAWMA award for Most Promising. She is focusing this year on both her music tour as well as her Nkulee Production company which joins music, fashion and jewelry design, all elements she models exquisitely in person. Kabaka Pyramid 7:35 pm One of the tuffest lyricists to come out of Kingston, Jamaica, Keron Kabaka Pyramid Salmon is a multi-talented song-writer, DJ, rapper, chanter and producer. His musical style blends the lyricism of hip-hop, with the energy and melody of reggae and dancehall. To me reggae and hip-hop go hand in hand...when they procreate, rebel music is born! Some believe that each art form must remain pure...i m not here to oppose, says Kabaka, But fusion is the foodstuff of evolution, and evolution is constant, both physically and spiritually. The artist s towering name comes from Kabaka which is Ugandan for King and Pyramids which are thought by the artist to house the mathematical proportions of universal laws that are eminent in the creation of this universe. Kabaka Pyramid made his first major break-through in 2007 and in 2011 released the EP Rebel Music which shows the world where Kabaka is looking to take Jamaican music. As one of the hottest emerging artists in Jamaica right now, this highly anticipated ROTR set with JA s Zincfence band will be his California festival debut. Chronixx & The Zincfence 8:15pm In his first ever Cali festival, riding high with chart toppers like Warrior, Behind Curtain, and Beat & A Mic Chronixx is one of the most exciting artists on the scene today. Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica in 1992, Chronixx was the stage name his friends bestowed on him, replacing the name Little Chronicle he was given as the junior to his father, the musician Chronicle. Chronixx wrote his first song at the age of five and became choir director and worship leader at the age of 11. At 14, he started producing and 14 Mateel Community Center

J Boog & Hot Rain 9:40 pm This artist s irresistible blend of island and reggae sounds are what made Let s Do It Again a smash hit in both the clubs and on the airwaves. Raised in Compton, California with Samoan ancestry, J Boog s south central swag and Hawaiian hang loose attitude find a natural home in reggae music. Captivating audiences worldwide with his highly-acclaimed debut album, 2007 s Hear Me Roar, his multigenre style blends reggae, R&B, hip-hop, and Polynesian soul with his own original street flair. Following the success of his debut release, he joined the Wash House Music family in 2008 and started working with Gramps Morgan, on his second disc, which was recorded in a variety of historic Jamaican studios and features tracks with reggae giants, Richie Spice, Tarrus Riley, and Morgan Heritage. His album, Back Yard Boogie (2010), produced by the legendary Don Corleon, is credited with changing the role of Polynesian artists in mainstream music. J-Boog is a playful, fun spirit with a luv-a-dub music vibration and his live performances are pure lava! Tarrus Riley & Blak Soil 11:30 pm Leading a resurgence of traditional roots reggae, Tarrus Riley embodies a rare blend of wisdom, maturity and street cred. Awarded Best singer, Best Male vocalist, Cultural Artist, Song of the Year, Best Song by various institutions, his expressive, instantly recognizable voice, lyrics and melodies capture the ups and downs of love and life in a way that is both familiar to his island audience and accessible to the whole world. Not the first to throw his candidacy in the hat of roots revival torch bearers, the name Tarrus Riley is nonetheless being mentioned in the same breath as esteemed vocalists Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs and Beres Hammond. His debut album, Challenges, was followed by Parables, which was greeted with widespread acclaim and spawned the hit singles, Lion Paw, Stay with You, and She s Royal among others. I target women and children with my music because slavery tampered with the woman s mind and that s why I wrote She s Royal. She s the head of the household so she has the power to influence the young men and women of tomorrow. Born in the Bronx and raised between Florida and Jamaica, Tarrus is the son of reggae singer Jimmy Riley, a member of the seminal 1960s harmony group, The Techniques. Tarrus grew up admiring dancehall stars Shabba Ranks and Buju Banton and started his career as a DJ (dancehall parlance for rapping). With his fifth album coming out any day, Tarrus Riley is also known to feature such artists as the DJ Konshens, hardcore dancehall singer Demarco and the polarizing Jamaican figure, Vybz Kartel. Tarrus Riley stands out and holds his own in the reggae mainstream amidst coarser fare on the JA charts. We need the youngsters in JA to listen where this roots music is coming from. We need to come out as one instead of everybody mix up mix up and bad mouthing each other. We need to show unity and we need to show strength Reggae on the River 15

16 Artist Bios SATURDAY, August 3 Reggae Angels 11:00 am Currently based in Oakland, CA, the Reggae Angels have one of the most extensive discographies of any American based reggae act. Their 12th and most recent CD dropped in November Turn on the Light, is agreed to be their strongest album to date. The Reggae Angels the messengers - see their work as offering musical guidance to themselves and others for righteous living. With proverbial words and lyrics affirming good character, entailing the positive human qualities of love, hope, chivalry, gratitude and generosity, they clarify and exalt the teaching of the prophets. The Reggae Angels live show is well groomed after years of touring and recording with an ever dynamic and spontaneous live presence full of happy, uplifting sounds. Prezident Brown 11:40 am The champion of new roots and reality consciousness, Prezident Brown is known as much for his deep vibrating vocals as he is for his dancehall toasting style. He got his start performing on local sound systems in Jamaica in the 1980s and started a recording career in the mid-90s. The most formative influence on Prezident Brown was producer and sound system operator Jack Ruby. Ruby saw something special in young Slim Brown; he took Slim Brown under his wing, re-named him Prezident Brown and appointed him resident M.C. of his Hi- Power Sound System, traveling worldwide. After the sound system era changed following Jack Ruby s death in 1989, and a massive roots revival swept across Jamaica washing gun and slackness lyrics out of the dance halls, the time was right for Prezident Brown to truly be heard. The Prez not only sings about righteousness, but strives to live it in his personal life. He is now more involved in his music than ever before. In addition to vocals, he s now producing and playing instruments. Touting his recently released album, I Sound Is From Creation, Prezident Brown consistently uplifts and strengthens his audiences through dynamic performances grounded in Nyabinghi drumbeats. Bob Marley was so pleased with their harmony that he brought them back to add their vocals to Rastaman Live Up and Blackman Redemption, just to name a few. Like a living time capsule, The Meditations represent the golden age of reggae, which showcased a three-part harmony with a backing roots reggae band. The Meditations have remained active in the recording industry, having also helped numerous artists and producers develop their musical careers. This special homecoming performance will be their first time back at the festival since the very first one in 1984 and their presence helps us celebrate a return to our roots as well. Blue King Brown 2:50 pm Hailed by Carlos Santana as the voice of the street and the band of the future, Blue King Brown is Australia s premiere urban roots crew. An award-winning eightpiece outfit led by the relentless energy of Natalie The Meditations 1:15 pm Bob Marley s favorite harmony trio, The Meditations - Ansel Cridland, Danny Clarke and Winston Watson, recorded their first hit single Woman is Like a Shadow in 1974 at Channel One Recording Studio and their first album Message from The Meditations was produced by Dobby Dobson. Instantly, the group s vocal style captured the hearts of reggae fans around the world and led to collaborations with Lee Scratch Perry. Perry, who produced for Bob Marley and the Wailers, asked them to do back-up vocals for Punky Reggae Party, featuring Bob on lead vocals. 16 Mateel Community Center

17 Pa apa a, BKB brings a dancehall, roots, rock and afro groove mash-up to their incendiary live set. BKB s cultural heritage includes Samoan, Native American, Basque and Mexican forebears and their vision extends far beyond the stage. They fiercely believe that another world is possible and that music is a powerful tool to be used to rewrite and realize this world free of the misfortunes of greed and poverty. Their hard hitting lyrics and beats stand up for freedom while their lyrics are charged with a burning sense of justice. Their first album, Stand Up (2006) was followed by WorldWize (2010) which featured special guests, Jah Mason, Sly & Robbie and Queen Ifrica. This year s performance at ROTR is sure to include new music from their much anticipated, forthcoming album. Les Nubians 4:30 pm The vibrant Parisian slam poetry circuit served as the incubator for French/ Cameroonian sister duo, Helene and Celia Faussart, to cultivate their art. The sisters soon adopted the moniker Les Nubians and set to work crafting an a capella, R&B hybrid inflected with Afro-Caribbean rhythmic sensibilities. They have earned a Grammy nomination and worldwide attention with a pair of major label releases and have since maintained an influential and infectious presence in the hip-hop and soul vanguard. Known for their innovative musical approach and glamorous afropean style, they are widely appealing on the urban music scene world-wide. With jazzy nuances, hard hitting drum and bass lines, harmonious melodies and conscious proclamations, Les Nubians manages to make the blend of so many diverse elements seem logical and organic as it all springs naturally from their multi-cultural lives. NATURAL FOODS SERVING THE HUMBOLDT NATION SERVING THE HUMBOLDT NATION SINCE 1982 SINCE 1982 Rockamovya 6:10 pm In their world festival premier, this inter-generational collaboration features modern jazz s most ubiquitous guitarist (Will Bernard), roots reggae s most prolific drummer (Leroy Horsemouth Wallace) and three players from America s biggest reggae band (Groundation). Although they perform an array of Jamaican popular music from ska to dancehall, they are firmly planted in roots reggae, which is not only a logical reflection of the Groundation sound, but allows them to tap in directly to the source as Horsemouth is one of the original creators of that particular style. However, they also venture out, and Bernard s majestic lead lines and wild tone experiments along with Marcus Urani s (Groundation) patchwork of Analog Synthesizer, B-3 Organ, and Rhodes Piano lines add new depth to the texture of reggae. All of this combined with the distinctive wailing cry of Harrison Stafford on vocals, the thunderous bass of Ryan Newman (Groundation), and the oftenemulated, but never replicated Horsemouth makes for some of the freshest sounding music today. Rockamovya reaches across demographics and genres to entice and enthrall listeners of any and every tribe. Natural Black 7:50 pm 783 LOCUST ST. GARBERVILLE CA PH Fax Originally from Guyana and now based In Jamaica, this talented vocalist has been on reggae s frontlines for the past decade. Born Mortimer Softley, he was nicknamed Black and White because of his love for dressing in 2013 Reggae on the River 17

18 that color code though his Jamaican counterparts later renamed him Natural Black. Upon his arrival to JA, Black found work as a welder and coffee picker while recording in his spare time. With a host of big tunes, including the monster track, Far From Reality, Natural Black has long been on the list of Most Wanted artists on the west coast. Though the artist made the media news last spring for cutting his locks and turning from a roots approach to more of a dancehall fire, he has returned to writing conscious music and is charging into 2013 with four new singles- all conscious reggae anthems- a move which has fans overjoyed for his inaugural ROTR performance! Anthony B 9:35 pm Draped in the rich colors of African cloth, his trademark staff in hand, and his dreadlocks wrapped regally upon his head, Anthony B has been steadfast in his mission to represent the poor and oppressed, using sharp lyrics to confront political injustices and bring the issues of the people to the forefront. Born in 1976 in the northwestern parish of Trelawny, Jamaica, his religious upbringing imbued him with a strong sense of spirituality although his family wasn t pleased when he adopted Rastafari beliefs as a teenager. During his youth, his favorite singers were reggae legends Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, both of whom strongly influenced his style. It was in 1992 that Anthony B left his home-town and set out to make his fateful mark on Kingston s music scene. Despite the trend then of girl and gun lyrics, Anthony B remained faithful to words of spiritual consciousness and social conviction. Anthony B has single-handedly raised performance standards and lyrical content for the industry through the release of over 13 albums, 1000 singles and appearances on over 13 CDs. Over the years, he has collaborated with Bone Crusher, Akon, Wyclef Jean, Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Martina and Toots. Anthony B continually proves himself to be one of reggae s most prolific and engaging artists and arguably its most electrifying performer. Julian Marley & The Uprising Band 11:30 pm Julian Marley, son of reggae legend Bob Marley and Barbados-born, Lucy Pounder, is a Grammy award nominated, roots-reggae musician, singer-songwriter, producer and humanitarian. In the same tradition as his father, Julian Ju Ju Marley is a devout Rastafarian whose music is inspired by life and spirituality. Born in London, England on June 4, 1975, Julian is the only son of Bob Marley born and raised in the U.K. Growing up in London remains a large part of who I am today. I feel privileged to be a part of the musical roots that my father laid in England. As the next generation of British-born reggae artists, I look forward to relating the cultural gifts and musical creations that have been bestowed on to me back onto the international music scene. Julian frequently visited his family and brothers Ziggy, Stephen, Damian and Ky-Mani in Jamaica. In 1987 when influential Wailers drummer Carlton Barrett was murdered outside of his home in Jamaica, Julian wrote two un-released songs, Uprising and What They Did Wrong in response to the incident. Subsequently he also formed a band called The Uprising, comprised of young Jamaican players. In 1993, Julian and his brothers formed a group called the Ghetto Youths Crew. Then, in 1996 Julian made his solo debut with Lion in the Morning. In 2009, Julian s career rose to even higher heights with the success of his Grammy Award Nominated release entitled, Awake. This album was inspired by the family who have come before says Julian, There is spiritual energy from the ancestors in this album. A humanitarian at heart, Julian Marley naturally leans toward building on charitable missions and contributing to the Ghetto Youths Foundation, which in the spirit of his father Bob Marley, allows the socially conscious Marley to give back to youths in various communities. Whether it s reasoning with children at the football fields in London, or offering his time to benefit concerts, Julian consciously looks toward finding ways to lend guidance to children. 18 Mateel Community Center

20 Artist Bios sunday, August 4 Paula Fuga & Mike Love Trio 11:00 am The Paula Fuga and Mike Love Trio brings together two of the rising stars from the Hawaiian Islands. Paula has established herself as an ambassador of the Hawaiian culture having toured the world over and collaborated with artists such as India.Arie, Jack Johnson and Ziggy Marley. Mike Love, a local legend on the Oahu music scene, recently released his debut album that was driven into the top-5 on the itunes Reggae charts based on his deep local following alone. Widely appealing and accessible, the trio s 3-part vocal harmonies and Paula s soaring, ethereal voice and genuine connection to her Hawaiian culture bring a beauty and gentleness to reggae music. Paula Fuga is a musician with a mission. A supremely talented ukulele player, she directs her thanks and praises to Ke Akua for giving her the gift of voice and vision, and she uses both talents to help bring about positive social change within her islands and beyond: performing at benefit concerts for charter schools and instilling the Hawaiian culture in the generations to come. She is a thoughtful voice, a beacon of meditation and healing. Standing tall on the pride and powers of their island s people, the Paula Fuga and Mike Love Trio serves as a beacon of meditation and healing to all those fortunate enough to bathe in their music. Garifuna Collective 12:35 pm Preserving and promoting the precious Garifuna language and culture, this group of accomplished, multi-generational Afro-Amerindian artists continues to tour and perform in their co-founder, Andy Palacio s memory. Andy Palacio & The Garifuna Collective s 2007 album Wátina is one of the most praised world music albums ever released. On the cusp of tremendous fame, Andy passed away suddenly a year after Wátina was released, leaving the world to wonder just how big he could have become. His band continues where Andy left off, sharing soul-stirring songs with enchanting rhythms and powerful melodies inspired by their unique Afro-Amerindian cultural heritage. Descendants of West African and indigenous Carib and Arawak peoples, today the Garifuna live primarily in Central America. The Garifuna Collective springs forth from their rich traditional life, adding contemporary elements that give their audiences access to the experience of exile, longing, hope and celebration that can be traced back through the legacies, folklore, and rituals of humankind. 20 Mateel Community Center
