DJ Carlos Culture and his lovely crime and partner Tanjah Love went down to the motherland(Jamaica) to attend Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Check out all the interviews from the trip!! 

 

Ding Dong and his dance crew the ravers Clayverz put on an amazing set on Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest. They were in a great vibe and we caught up to the leader Ding Dong. He is a street dancer turned artist. He still goes to a street dance Sunday to Sunday with his crew. I get a bit confused at the end and we all have a good laugh.

Singer J comes from a musical family. He is a seasoned veteran and gave a great show at Reggae Sumfest. We got a chance to spend a few minutes with the dancehall veteran.

Grammy Nominated in 2016 Reggae Artist Devin Di Dakta preformed at Reggae Sumfest 2017. It was a great night a Dancehall Night he had one of the most talked bout sets. He is an artist on the rise. Look out for him. Check it out.

Sanjay was on the panel of the judges at the Sound Clash. She is a professor at the university and goes by Minister of Culture. Sanjay spoke to us in the press tent.

Rising Dancehall Diva Shenseea put on a great showing going through her hits. We had a chance to talk to her after her performance.

Jah Cure put on an incredible performance having the crowd from start to finish. I reminded him of when Sizzla called him out on stage for the first time at Sumfest 1992 (25 years ago). Of course we were there then and now.

Among stellar performances from slated artists Stephen Marley invited Capleton on stage to do "Ragga Rock Stone" among others. We have been fans since he performed at Sunsplash in 1990 and King Shango is a long time friend of DJ Carlos Culture and Roots High Power Sound System.

Mr. Lexx is a reggae dancehall icon from the 90s. He was known as Lexxus for years. He performed at the Reggae Sumfest Retro Night at Pier One in Montego Bay. He spoke to us right on the spot.
