Gondwana:

For over thirty years, the Chilean band Gondwana has been touring, performing, and recording uninterrupted.

Emerging from the underground music scene during the brutal dictatorship of Agusto Pinochet, Gondwana brings forth a fresh blend of Latin and Jamaican rhythms among other influences such as Rock n’ Roll and soul. With pulsating energy and a smooth, original sound, eight polished musicians are the soul of Chile’s number one reggae band.

Through songs dealing with various themes such as romantic love, general love, universal unity, social consciousness, uprising, and spiritual praise, Gondwana reveals both positive and realists messages that serve as an uplifting force for fans of all musical genres. Spirit-moving falsetto notes, bubbling bass, hard drums, guitar solos and arrangements, and horns are the primary ingredients found in the highly acclaimed band’s music.

Without a doubt, Gondwana is one of the most prestigious, solid reggae bands to emerge from South America. With constant movement across the world and a myriad of vibrant live performances, Gondwana continues to deliver an acclaimed repertoire of hits and new material. The band is internationally recognized as one of Chile’s most successful musical acts – not just in reggae but across all genres.

Already superstars in their native Chile and throughout South America, Gondwana has been gaining very enthusiastic fans throughout the world, as evident by their extensive social media following and a sizeable number of international concerts per year. From its humble beginnings in La Pincoya, a notorious northern Santiago slum, to a leading position in Chilean pop music, Gondwana has remained true to their original posture, standing tall and strong in a peace-loving position of musical and lyrical creation.

Bayonics:

Born in the San Francisco Mission District, for the past two decades Bayonics has mixed Reggae and Latin music to create a style as unique as the city they call home. Melding together genres, they carry on the tradition of legendary Bay Area groups such as Santana and Sly & The Family Stone, groups that transcend genre and move people literally and figuratively.
