Tropical reggae/roots band fronted by immigration rights activist Elijah Emanuel, who was born in Panama. "Where I want to take it [reggae]? Where it's not localized to one geography and not limited to one culture. The music is universal. When I compose songs my intentions are to speak to and inspire people from every country in the world and this because the nature of this music directly connects to the consciousness of all people."
