Born and raised in Waipahu, Hawaii, four close friends embraced their love of music and singing from their early high school campus days to forming the reggae group we know today as Rebel Souljahz. Composed of four talented vocalists, Mike Maglinti, Will Su’a, Andrew “Bubba” Hodges and Tunez Moananu, each with their own unique style, but together creating a harmonious foursome unlike any other recording group.

Rebel Souljahz music is heavily influenced by reggae and R&B music. Its signature soulful harmonies by four lead singers separates them from your typical reggae artist.

The band’s fanbase continues to grow daily. They’ve accumulated nearly 3 million views altogether on YouTube, 140,000 Facebook fans and 80,000 Instagram followers.


Nirvana a.k.a Vana Liya grew up outside of New York City. Being of Caribbean descent, Vana was surrounded by Soca, calypso, dancehall and reggae music. Vana’s mom gave her a ukulele for Christmas and a few years later she began covering songs by some of her favorite artists. The combination of the ukulele and her soft voice put a unique twist on some reggae-rock staples. Artists like 311, Rebelution, Stick Figure and SOJA shared Vana’s covers across social media platforms, which was the beginning of Vana finding her audience. After gaining traction, in early 2018 Vana Liya signed with Pepper’s LAW Records becoming the first female and first solo artist. Subsequently, she released her debut single “Show Me”. Later that year, Vana visited Stick Figure’s Great Stone Studios in Oakland, CA. She recorded “Go For It” with Johnny Cosmic of Stick Figure. Cosmic signed on to produce her debut album, which is scheduled for a 2020 release. She says, “Working with Cosmic has helped me find my sound – there’s a new feel behind this album.” Vana has shared the stage with bands like SOJA, Pepper, The Expendables & The Movement.

DJ IRIE DOLE is a well-established DJ, promoter, radio personality, event host and all- around Reggae advocate.
