Article Contributed by Woody Graber | Published on Friday, February 1, 2019

Kaya Fest 2019 has just announced more exciting performers added to the Festival lineup. Multi-Platinum Grammy Award winning, international superstar Sean Paul joins the lineup. While cemented in reggae and dancehall from his home country, Sean Paul maintains a multi-national presence with numerous collaborations in genres such as EDM, soca, pop, afrobeats and Latin. The cross-over icon also boasts a remarkable fan base in Latin America, Japan, Europe and USA.  He will be performing with popular dancehall artist Chi Ching Ching who is more than just a deejay: he’s a dancer, socialite and street linguist, constantly creating new moves and coining colourful new slang, which in turn inspires his music. An entertainer in every sense of the word, the sky is definitely the limit for the man who is already “Talla Dan Dem.”

Celebrating 45 years, reggae legends Third World is one of the longest-lived Reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica's most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as "reggae-fusion".

While Third World is the legend, the future is young roots music performer Koffee.  One of the hottest performers in reggae today, she feels her mission is to preserve Jamaica’s roots and culture in music and to empower the youth of her generation through her musical journey across the world. She states: “I want to make a better world for the generation that's coming up, to promote love and peace, and even though I’m young, I feel that the Creator has blessed me with talent and wisdom to get the job done”.

These additions provide a strong variety of performers that add strength to an already dynamic lineup.  And more performers will be added soon.
