MIAMI, March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaya Fest announces that GRAMMY Award-winning and urban music artist Yandel will join this year's Kaya Fest line-up. Produced by Fruit of Life Productions and OneRise Entertainment, Kaya Fest is a two-day music and awareness festival being held at NOS Events Center April 28 - 29 in San Bernardino, California.
One of the earliest protagonists of the two-decade-old music genre, Yandel's wildly successful style of reggaeton injects rhythm and nuances from Hip Hop, R&B, Pop and Reggae. Update his fourth studio album, including the hit song Sólo Mía which just surpassed 50 million views on YouTube, was released in September 2017 on Sony Music Latin.
"Music brings people together. Having Yandel at Kaya Fest this year means that our movement of unity, celebration and one love spreads to even more cultures and the message reaches even more people," said Stephen Marley, founder of Kaya Fest.
Known as a member of the duo Wisin & Yandel, he is the only reggaeton act to win both a Grammy and a Latin Grammy Award.
"Reggaeton, which originated in Puerto Rico, is partly influenced by Caribbean music, in particular Jamaican reggae and dancehall. The musical experience shared with festivalgoers at Kaya Fest is a daily discussion and reggaeton was a natural addition for us," said David F. Alfonso, chairman at OneRise Entertainment.
Yandel is set to perform at Kaya Fest on Saturday, April 28th and joins a two-day lineup of notables including Stephen Marley, Ziggy Marley, Damian Marley, Julian Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Cypress Hill, Action Bronson, Chronixx, Toots & the Maytals, Common Kings and guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine to name a few for Kaya Fest 2018.
More exciting artist announcements are forthcoming. The current line-up, tickets and additional information can be found at kayafestivals.com.
