“The whole concept of the Afro Roots Fest initially came together as a tribute to Sun Ra himself,” says Jose Elias, founder and executive director of CAC. “I had just seen the film A Joyful Noise and it inspired me so much that I put together a band called the Afro Polyphonic Space Orchestra and created the festival around it.”  Fast-forward twenty years, and the tribute has evolved into a successful yearly musical and cultural community program.

Directed by alto saxophonist Marshall Allen, the Sun Ra Arkestra are musical torch-bearers for the late, great keyboardist and big-band innovator born Herman Poole Blount. The Arkestra carry on the traditions set by the cosmic philosopher, complete with full costumes and the “Songbook from Saturn”. They maintain a busy touring schedule and continue to release albums, beginning with 1999’s Song for the Sun. Learn more at www.sunraarkestra.com.

Kouyate, a native of Senegal and an Afro Roots Fest favorite, is a Kora master and a trained Griot, meaning he maintains a tradition of West African oral history through songHis handmade instrument is a captivating 20-string, harp-like beauty, which he wields powerfully in his melodic storytelling.

Roots / Reggae Week in Jupiter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Upcoming Roots / Reggae Shows at Guanabanas

Jupiter, FL – March 6, 2018 – One version of the old refrain goes “March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion”. At Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar, the month of March will definitely roar with the sounds of several high-profile roots / reggae acts, beginning with Iya Terra on March 15Pato Banton and special guest Roots Shakedown March 17, and The Expanders with Sensamotion and Dubbest March 22. All performances begin at 9 p.m. except the triple header on 3/22, which begins at 8 p.m. No cover, 21 and over are welcome. Guanabanas is located on the Loxahatchee River and near the Jupiter Inlet, at 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477.

“Our crowd is definitely roots / reggae-friendly, and do we have a very special treat lined up for them,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “In about a week’s time, we will have presented one of L.A.’s premiere reggae acts in Iya Terra, British legend Pato Banton with an outstanding local group Roots Shakedown, and another L.A. reggae revivalist mainstay The Expanders, plus a couple of special guest bands.” Cahur is a Jupiter-based guitarist and the head of a music management and promotions company that boasts of a successful 20-year record. In addition, he serves as the lead sound engineer for Guanabanas.

Formed in Los Angeles about four years ago, Iya Terra take a modern approach to creating conscious sound waves that has them bound for infinite possibilities. In 2016, Iya Terra reached new heights as they toured heavily throughout the western U.S. with bands such as The Movement, New Kingston, and Arise Roots. Their third studio album Sacred Sound, released on March 17, 2017, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae chart. The band’s March current tour has them winding through Texas and the Southeast before heading to Utah and Colorado. More details: iyaterra.com.

Born Patrick Murray in Birmingham, England, Pato Banton was pivotal to the rise of reggae in the U.K. during the 80s. Several high-profile guest appearances, including with UB40 and Chrissie Hines led to his solo debut, 1987’s Never Give In. He then had a U.S. college radio hit in 1990 with a cover of The Police’s “Spirits in the Material World”. He eventually hooked up with Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD organization, which took him on tour across the globe, peforming concerts and working with disadvantaged youths. Still actively touring, his latest release came in 2008: Destination Paradise.

The Expanders are a five-piece unit that pride themselves on representing the “golden era” of reggae. They are currently promoting in support of their latest full-length release, 2017’s Old Time Something Come Back Again Vol 2, as well as a brand-new single called “Blood Morning“, issued last month.

ABOUT HIALEAH PARK 

 Hialeah Park began making history in 1922 as the Miami Kennel Club, the first pari-mutuel greyhound track in America, founded by Missouri cattleman James Bright and aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss. In early 1925, the newly renamed Hialeah Park opened for thoroughbred racing over a one-mile dirt track.

Today Hialeah Park is home to a state-of-the-art casino, which began operations in August of 2013. It features 800 Las Vegas-style slot machines, electronic roulette and blackjack, South Florida’s most popular poker room, several restaurants and cocktail lounges, and seasonal quarter horse racing.

Champions Simulcast Center and Sports Bar, on the second floor of the iconic Clubhouse, is open year-round, offering bettors world-class horse racing action from across the United States.

Newly redesigned space is available for weddings, quinces, and special events. The park’s vast outdoor space is also available for events. An official corporate partner of the University of Miami, Hialeah Park is listed as an Audubon Bird Sanctuary and is recorded in the National Register of Historic Places.

With entrances at 100 East 32nd Street and 2200 East 4th Avenue, Hialeah Park is easily accessible from all major Miami highways. The landmark venue is conveniently located just minutes by car from Miami International AirportSouth BeachDowntown MiamiCoral Gables, and Doral.
