The class will include movement that will help cultivate a meditative mind. Nada yoga is the “union through sound ” the inner transformation using sound vibrations. Traditionally mantra was used but in the experience students will explore their inner world with mantra as well as singing bowls & the hand pan drum.

    Rockers Movement Annual Miami Reggae Festival Returns with Their Vibe, Spirit and Celebration of Oneness — Make Way for the Positive Day as it shines during Winter Music Conference with “One Love” Celebration of Live Performances, Art and Food for Charity.

    Miami Reggae Festival offers up an evening of peace, love & unity on Friday March 15th, under the stars at North Beach Bandshell, in Miami Beach, Florida. Patrons will come together to donate food to the less fortunate as part of the admission to the annual festival.

    Miami, FL. January 15, 2019 Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty during the Winter Music Conference for a powerful night of reverence, livity, peace and unity – expanding consciousness through music, food and charity.

    Reggae music, a music now recognized as world heritage music by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) brings together people from all walks of life in the spirit of “One Love” for an evening of sharing in culture and healing.

    Miami Reggae Festival expresses the hopes and dreams of a world in which what people have in common is far greater than that which divides. Through the Festival, attendees live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction. Miami Reggae Festival unifies Miami’s diverse community to aid Dade County residents living in poverty. Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. “The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, socio-political ambience and service to community available anywhere. Past festivals has featured the likes of: Stephen and Damian Marley, Bunny Wailer, Steel Pulse, Toots & The Maytals, Cultura Profética, Morgan Heritage, Midnite, Gondwana, Natiruts, Tiken Jah Fakoly and Luciano to name a few.

    This year Miami Reggae Festival is headlined by the legendary Roots band from St. Croix Akae Beka (formerly Midnite), Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. As it is written in The Word, much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does lead singer Vaughn Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, he says: “my personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in this newly declared name from the Book of Enoch: Akae Beka, a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same.”

    Also performing from Jamaica; Jah9 and the Dub Treatment, deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.

    Miami based Rhythm Flow, zen trance dub will pulse through the crowd, raising the vibration as Colombian Zurich Based DJ Nurstacris maintains the positive vibes throughout the night. Continuing the tradition of collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need, the Miami Reggae Festival partners with Miami charity Hecho en Casa, Visual art displayed echoes sentiments felt throughout the human experience and plant-based and cruelty-free dishes complement the compassionate atmosphere.

    Founder, Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks, says: ”Rockers Movement started with an obligation to do something good, and to affect people positively. The ways in which people can have a positive effect are limitless. By working together people transform communities, the environment and lives, being a part of the how and why.”

    Miami Reggae Festival has also joined the rally to raise awareness about the positive impact and benefits of the gift cannabis, the plant for the mind, body and spirit. Music and herb just go together. In the spirit of unity Miami Reggae Festival producers found it necessary to be a part of this rally. In the challenging economic climate today, people know now more than ever the need for a positive vibration. Brother Bob Marley said: “Herb is the healing of the nation”. So come and join in a day of good vibes and let’s get together and feel alright, remember together WE ARE ROCKERS!

    Miami Reggae Festival takes place on Friday, March 15, 2019 from 5-11pm at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33141.

    Tickets are $22 in advance plus two non-perishable food items for entry.

Break out those top hats, goggles, corsets, petticoats, compass bracers, and monocles and join in on a “Steampunkin'” good time. Open on President’s Day, Monday February 18th!

    * Vikings and Barbarians – February 23rd and 24th
    Coming from the harsh wastelands of the North, only the strongest and most courageous warriors will survive through this weekend.

Onward to Valhalla!

    * Bodacious Bodices & Wenches – March 2nd and 3rd

    Embrace your fellow tribesmen with glory as you enjoy libations and sing to your heart’s content to the blaring of bagpipes.

    * FAN FAVORITE – Kamikaze Fireflies
    Comedy wrapped in lunacy wrapped in foolishness. This show is a combination of strength, physical agility and amazingly well-crafted routines, balancing classical theatrical training with disciplined circus physicality. It is a constantly changing series of routines, patter, physical impossibilities, unbelievable situations and audience interactions. They are difficult to describe and impossible to forget.

    * NEW – Music the Gathering
    Music The Gathering has a vast repertoire of original arrangements across multiple genres, from traditional Celtic to contemporary world and original parodies. In addition to mixed vocal harmonization, all three musicians play various folk and classical string, woodwind, and percussion instruments, which allows them to take familiar traditional songs and arrange them in unique ways. All members are actors with a strong background in comedy and improvisation, and they take pride in performing with all the energy and passion they can muster.

    * NEW – The Jackdaws
    The Jackdaws deliver original, contemporary, and traditional Irish Rock to audiences across the land. This trailblazing trio will excite and have you coming back for more with their driving melodies and relentlessly aggressive lyrics. More Irish than a drunken roar, and a damned sight messier.

    * NEW – Lady Ophelia’s Dance Party & Maypole Dance
    Lady Ophelia invites you to flirt… the old-fashioned way as she is well versed and most skilled in all the current dances and royal entertainments. However, don’t forget to join in on the wonderful opportunity of going round the Maypole as you decorate the pole in spring colors. Watch, dance, and frolic as you become entwined in the history, the joy and the traditions of court and country dance.

    * FAN FAVORITE – DeBracy Productions – Joust
    Come witness the heart-pounding medieval live-action stunt show. DeBracy Productions combines trick riding, vaulting, chariot racing, death defying stunts, full contact jousting and a gladiator style spectacle.

She is a member of the Marketing Advisory Committee of the Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB and the International Council of Shopping Centers and recently became a Riverwalk Trustee.

    TUSK The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, is the #1 Tribute to Fleetwood Mac in the world, bar none.

    No wigs, no backing tracks, no gimmicks, just five musicians recreating the music of Fleetwood Mac to perfection with note for note renditions that no other Fleetwood Mac tribute on the touring scene today can come close to duplicating. Tusk covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over twenty-five years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years.

    Authentic-sounding and always respectful, Tusk leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.
