After an extended break to produce two of Southern California’s largest outdoor reggae events, Seabreeze Festival, and Irie Reggae Festival, the ‘Edutainment’ continues, as Curly cements today’s important social and political issues ‘digitally’ for the unforeseeable future.
“Just as Politicians and great leaders have a responsibility to inform and lead their people, so do musicians and artists. I believe music is a significant element in communicating to the people – positive and uplifting thoughts.” – Curly
