Big Mountain’s lead singer and Baja Roots co-founder, Joaquin “Quino” McWhinney, states:  “I’ve lived in Baja California for almost 12 years and have always dreamed of having a world music festival that brought bands from both sides of the border together.

Last year I began working with the Baja Angels of the Sea. We planned a benefit event for the orphanage that they work with. My friend, Bruno Barbieri, the director of Baja Angels, proposed earlier this year that we try to put a real music festival together. As fate would have it, we put the right team together and all of a sudden the festival was born.
