Rising Lions


The central lion figure in reggae music is a symbol of divine truth, power and nobility.
In an effort to preserve the cultural aesthetic and symbolic heritage of this rebel music, we at #ReggaeOnTheRiver want to hail up all the young lions, all the humble and righteous singers and players of instruments who are forwarding in the new era of reggae music.

Each of these three Rising Lions will make their inaugural appearance at ROTR

[Marlon Asher: The voice of “The Ganja Farmer,” Asher is a Trinidad reggae star that helped to kick-start the Trinidad and Tobago dancehall/reggae movement. 2013 saw the release of his reinvigorated musical style in the mixtape, “Higher Learning.”

Jah9: Janine “Jah9” Cunningham is part of the “Roots Revival” movement being forwarded by her brethren Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and Protoje. Also a yoga instructor, her signature style of jazz and dub over reggae riddims was created in the underground poetry scene in Kingston, JA.

Meta and The Cornerstones: Originally from Senegal, Meta and his Brooklyn-based band, The Cornerstones, successfully fuse reggae, afro-pop, hip hop, rock and soul music with passionate multi-lingual lyrics equating to what critics are calling “a soul-pounding spiritual experience.” Their 2013 album, “Ancient Power” featuring Damian Marley, catapulted them into a European tour and ROTR will be the first to host them in California.
