Expect food stands from some of Goa’s best eateries and also stalls selling an array of interesting items.

Welcome to a true celebration of peace, unity and consciousness through reggae music. One love!

Christos DC
The artist/ producer Christos DC (aka Christopher Vrenios) was born and in Washington, D.C. by parents who sang opera and taught voice professionally. He takes his name from his Greek heritage, using a nick- name given to him by his grandmother to represent the lineage that set the tone of his musical path. It was Christos’ deep appreciation for the sounds coming out of Kingston, Jamaica that led him to produce and record with legendary reggae artists Sly and Robbie, the Firehouse Crew, The Itals, Augustus Pablo, Sugar Minot and Don Carlos, the original lead singer from grammy winning group Black Uhuru. He also has co-written and recorded with the world-famous Thievery Corporation. He spent several years on the road as a guitarist and backup vocalist, performing in the United States and abroad. In 2008, he released his first full album, Time to Rise, followed by his second release, Under the Sun which led him to create the D.C. based independent record label Honest Music. His last full-length album Long Road was released on Earth Day 2014, and received critical acclaim. The first single and video Just Talk To Me features Kenyatta Hill, son of icon Joseph Hill from the trio Culture. The summer hit of 2015, Righteous Chant, finds him reunited with Don Carlos. The song Heart Of Gold, a reggae rendition of The Neil Young classic song released in the latter part of last year and topped several charts in Amsterdam. The latest single release “Human Dignity”, a collaboration with The Skankin Monks was written as a response to many world events that have compromised the state of man kind all across the globe. “Music is a gift,” Christos says. ” When we share it, we should consider the effect it will have on others. This is why I make honest music.”
