Surf Roots TV Presents "Closer To The Sun". Watch here! 

Our "Closer to the Sun" episode focuses on a magical 4-day music getaway in Cancun, Mexico put on by SLIGHTLY STOOPID, Silverback Music and Cloud 9 Adventures. It was the 5th year anniversary of this annual event. The episode is hosted by Kaleo Wassman of PEPPER, and includes international reggae stars UB40, ALBOROSIE, YELLOWMAN and DON CARLOS alongside US-based SLIGHTLY STOOPID, STICK FIGURE, MICHAEL FRANTI, THIEVERY CORPORATION, PEPPER, HIRIE, THE EXPENDABLES, CHALI 2NA (JURASSIC 5), G LOVE and THE MOVEMENT.  

Through a series of performances and interviews they demonstrate why this festival is such a unique gathering place, the family bond of the artists, and the evolution of the sound that has traveled from Jamaica to California, Hawaii and beyond. And they explore the positive effect that reggae is having in today's world.
