Marleys, SOJA, Alpha Blondy highlight Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, June 21-23, 2013

The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (SNWMF), presented by Epiphany Artists, is the premiere North American world and conscious roots music festival.  Every summer, tens of thousands of world music fans converge on Mendocino, California to celebrate music with a message of peace, unity and brotherhood, which transcends the divisions of race and culture.

Over the past 19 years SNWMF has endeavored to build a community where conscious music, roots music, and world music is embraced. Where bringing diverse people from many lands together in celebration yields more than just the sum of each individual present, but something much grander. At SNWMF, people experience a unique sense of unity and belonging, a semi-utopian moment in time where love, generosity, joy and innocence can be reclaimed. SNWMF exists based on the unifying belief that music has the power to move mountains and change paradigms, and the phenomenal artists who have graced SNWMF stages over the past decade have imparted an overwhelmingly positive force.

This year’s festival, which runs from Friday, June 21st through Sunday, June 23rd, features the following artists:  Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, SOJA, Groundation, Marcia Griffiths, Max Romeo, U-Roy, Cornell Campbell, Alpha Blondy & the Solar System, The Green, Ras Michael, Sister Carol, Prince Fatty, Mystic Roots, Jah Shaka, and many more.
