    Gondwana

    Reggae

    For over thirty years, the Chilean band Gondwana has been touring, performing, and recording
    uninterrupted. Emerging from the underground music scene during the brutal dictatorship of Agusto
    Pinochet, Gondwana brings forth a fresh blend of Latin and Jamaican rhythms among other influences
    such as Rock n’ Roll and soul. With pulsating energy and a smooth, original sound, eight polished
    musicians are the soul of Chile's number one reggae band.
    Through songs dealing with various themes such as romantic love, general love, universal unity, social
    consciousness, uprising, and spiritual praise, Gondwana reveals both positive and realists messages
    that serve as an uplifting force for fans of all musical genres. Spirit-moving falsetto notes, bubbling
    bass, hard drums, guitar solos and arrangements, and horns are the primary ingredients found in the
    highly acclaimed band’s music.
    Without a doubt, Gondwana is one of the most prestigious, solid reggae bands to emerge from South
    America. With constant movement across the world and a myriad of vibrant live performances,
    Gondwana continues to deliver an acclaimed repertoire of hits and new material. The band is
    internationally recognized as one of Chile’s most successful musical acts – not just in reggae but across
    all genres.
    Already superstars in their native Chile and throughout South America, Gondwana has been gaining
    very enthusiastic fans throughout the world, as evident by their extensive social media following and a
    sizeable number of international concerts per year. From its humble beginnings in La Pincoya, a
    notorious northern Santiago slum, to a leading position in Chilean pop music, Gondwana has remained
    true to their original posture, standing tall and strong in a peace-loving position of musical and lyrical
    creation.

    E.N Young

    Reggae

    E.N Young is a roots musician born and raised on the USA/Mexico border in San Diego,
    California. E.N started playing piano at age 6, which was the beginning of his musical life. His
    parents bought him a white upright Samick Piano that he still records and plays on today. At age
    12, he broke his left arm and the doctor recommended some physical activity to help recover. In
    response, his father bought him a drum set to help with his recovery. Not only did it help
    physically but E.N found a passion for percussion and drums. With his new drumming talent, he
    reinvented himself on the piano and his musical world was revealed.
    Reggae music has always been a part of E.N Young's life. Growing up with his brothers, Manuel
    and Mike'Chunky Roots' Marquez, reggae was around and the influence was strong. Daily, E.N
    and his brothers would search for the next reggae tune that caught their ears and lose
    themselves within the reggae vibes. Now, E.N is more involved in the reggae scene than ever
    imagined. Not only has he established a name for himself as an individual artist but also as a
    writer and producer.
