SURF ROOTS TV presents "CLOSER TO THE SUN"
Our pilot episode is hosted by Kaleo Wassman of PEPPER, taking you on a journey to Closer to the Sun, a 4-day music getaway in Cancun, Mexico put on by SLIGHTLY STOOPID. Closer to the Sun includes international reggae stars UB40, ALBOROSIE, DON CARLOS, and popular US-based artists SLIGHTLY STOOPID, MICHAEL FRANTI, STICK FIGURE, PEPPER, G LOVE, THE EXPENDABLES, HIRIE, CHALI 2NA (JURASSIC 5) and THE MOVEMENT. Through a series of interviews and performances they demonstrate why this festival is such a unique gathering place, the family bond of the artists, the evolution of the sound that has travelled from Jamaica to California to Hawaii and beyond. And they explore the effect that Reggae is having in today's world.
It's a behind the scenes look at some of the hottest artists in music today, and why fans are flocking to this positive reggae movement.
Thank you to Cloud 9 Productions and Silverback Music for giving us the opportunity to come and capture this magical event!
