Bahia Festival is turning out to be an amazing day. Scott T. Brown, our program director and the Co-founder of Big Reggae Mix sent me the picture above as he was grooving the vibes in San Diego.
E.N. Young born Ian Allan 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.
E.N started performing when he was 15 years old and in 2002 he became a member of the band Stranger. As a band they put out four studio albums and toured on the West coast, including Guam and Hawaii; which led them to win the San Diego Music Award in 2009. In 2005, E.N Young met Bonita/Chula Vista locals, Roots Covenant and backed 30+ Jamaican artists. In 2010 E.N began pushing his solo career by releasing his first debut album ‘Luck & Chance No More’ under his new label, Roots Musician Records, May 1 2010. He became the first artist under RMR and began to tour as a solo artist. Along his musical path, he has played onstage with many influential reggae artists including Quino Big Mountain, Devastators, Johnny Clarke, Triston Palma, Sammy Dread, Heptones, Everton Blender, Jah Batta, Michael Palma, Sister Nancy, Edi Fitzroy, Anuhea, Tamarama, Stranger, Carlton Livingston, Don Carlos, Slightly Stoopid, the Abyssinians, Clear Conscience, Eek A Mouse, English Man, Gonzo, Tribal Seeds, Milton Henry and more.

When I saw this I had to share it by Mitch Santell
Bob Marley's legacy continues on a daily, weekly and yearly basis through his children and grandchildren.

A Story Sent To Us for Sharing by Mitch Santell
This story is yet another example of how Cannabis can provide a benefit to a person who chooses to use it.
Former NFL star Percy Harvin claimed he never played a game without smoking marijuana first.
True Music Observations by Mitch Santell
There is nothing like the feeling of great Reggae Music and how it merely washes over you and brings a smile to your face. When I am inspired, I want to inspire others. The greatest inspiration of all? Music, yes I said yes!
Music takes us back to a formative time, to a younger potentate version of ourselves. Music reminds us of who we were, who we are, and who we still want to be. Music captures a zeitgeist, a moment-in-time, and in an instant we are transported – mind, body and soul – to that day on the beach, that night at the prom, or that afternoon cruising in the car, new license in hand, breeze in our hair and the radio blaring.

Reflections on the Festival Life by Mitch Santell
A Reggae Festival can be an absolute blast to attend. The Upcoming One Love California Reggae Festival just days away in Long Beach, California is no exception. You can be prepared, or you may end up after your first day feeling miserable, the choice is yours.
There are three major things you want to avoid when attending a music festival.
One ~ Bring water so you can hydrate.
Two ~ Bring Sun Screen.
Three ~ Don't overpack.

Reflections On The Cannabis Movement by Mitch Santell
California has come a long way since I returned home from New Zealand in 2013.
In 2019, it feels like Cannabis and Marijuana related products are shifting into the mainstream.
A lot of what is driving the Cannabis movement here in my view is the medical uses.
Countless videos have appeared on YouTube over the past five years.
Here is a local story here in Orange County, California that provides a current overview here in 2019.
Tougher requirements for marijuana purity that kicked in this year in California aren’t triggering the high failure rates that emptied shelves at cannabis shops last summer, when the state began phasing in mandated testing.

This year promises to be another year of Reggae Music expansion. How do I know this? No form of music is as authentic or organic as Reggae. All genre's of Reggae have a deep respect for God, and just as we have a right to worship freely in America, there are many places globally where people are killed for their beliefs and faith.
Reggae helps heal mental wounds of torture for migrants in Italy
