She's a worthy representative of the Latin American dancehall scene, an iconic figure of the fight against injustices and violence in the Argentine and Latin American "barrios"…
Alika started her career in 1994 with a band, but she quickly took wing and set up a solo career which leaded herself beyond her expectations! Recognized too as an hip hop artist, Alika wakes the reggae world in Argentina with engaged lyrics, breathtaking energy and remarkable stage presence. A Molotov cocktail which almost crossed the entire planet !
Even the genius Mad Professor started to be interested by this woman with a bright future! He produced her 5th album in 2009, a jewel which convinced the genre experts and permitted her to expend her talent in all over the world.
Her charisma and presence on stage have allowed her to take her show to festivals, theaters, clubs, schools, hospitals and even prisons in different cities arround the world—including Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru, Brasil, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, United States of America. France, Spain and Andorra.—marking a truly amazing career for someone who to this day remains an independent artist.
Her tune ¨Yo Tengo el don¨ Feat. Tito y La Liga is included in the soundtrack of videogame GRAND THEFT AUTO V.

Rihanna is jumping on board the Reggae Music bandwagon. This is what I found today and needed to share this right away. First Katy Perry, then Sting and now Rihanna.
Rihanna is working on her follow-up to 2016’s ANTI, and although there’s not that much information about #R9 out there right now, she recently revealed one of its influences in a cover story with Vogue: reggae.

Welcome aboard the only global reggae mix blog that provides you with a front row seat to what is happening in the world of Reggae.
My name is Scott Brown and I am a guy who has been obsessed, addicted, attached and in love with Reggae for the past 15+ years.
More than any form of music, I humbly think that Reggae is very unique. I've watched the music business shift from being run by real music people to accountants and idiots who have no clue as to how this genre started and has become a global phenomena.
If you want to get a sense of how excited I get when I hear great live reggae, check out this track from Rebelution that I recored live while sitting next to Errol Brown at the mixing board on an iPhone 5.
