Skip Marley along with Jo Mersa Marley and Shacia Payne have been added to the exciting line-up at the first ever Kaya Fest.  Kaya Fest is being produced by Stephen Marley, an eight time Grammy Award winner, singer, songwriter, musician producer and son of the legend Bob Marley.  Presented by Fruit of Life Productions, the Festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 / 1PM at Bayfront Park Amphitheatre, 301 Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami. 

Skip Marley recently made a stellar appearance on the 2017 Grammy Awards telecast with Katy Perry.  He is a featured artist on her single “Chained to the Rhythm” which entered the Billboard hot 100 at #4.  He is the first Marley to enter in the Top 10 of that chart.  Skip’s single “Lions” debuted at #1 on the Spotify top 50 and still remains at the top of the charts.  

Jo Mersa Marley is the oldest son of Stephen Marley and first joined his father at age 4 onstage with the Melody Makers.  He has continued to develop as an artist and musician and will perform his entire “Comfortable” EP as the opening act on Stephen Marley’s Revelation Part II "The Fruit of Life" tour. 

Shacia Payne is an American-Jamaican DJ who appreciates the importance of music on a Universal level. Her love for music shows through her melodic mixture of genres like soul, indie, Hip-Hop, R&B, reggae and dancehall among others. Her energetic vibe delivers an electric feeling.
