About Tmrw.Tday

The Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest is a seven day experience, where you embrace positivity, consciousness, and growth through wellness, music, dance, art, nature and natural therapies. The philosophy of Tmrw.Tday is to create a better tomorrow by manifesting goodness from today. The festival is held on one edge of Jamaica, along the beautiful stretch of 7-mile beach in Negril. This is the ultimate relaxation vacation, step out of your normal routine for a while, consciously engage your physical and mental health then leave revitalized.

The After Movie

I’ve started looking forward to this annual event, I went to the reggae concert two years in a row, read my review of the 2018 Reggae Showcase. This year, the festival included some of the biggest names in conscious dub, reggae, dancehall, house and yoga including the legendary Beenie Man, AudioFly, Bedouin plus a Crew Love takeover featuring Wolf+Lamb and Soul Clap. Check out the 2018 Tmrw.Tday after movie.

 

Hope to see you next year! Tmrw.Tday will be April 30 – May 5, 2019 and early bird tickets are now on sale.

Familiar Stranger

Familiar Stranger

We’ve been waiting for this! Maybe this is the year for love, here I have a brand new single from Evaflow. He recently released “Familiar Stranger” featuring Sara Lugo. Here Lugo’s honeyed melodious voice flows through as the chorus, while Eva shows his spectacular lyrical styling and immaculate rhyming. The groovy instrumental that flowed beneath the lyrics was a mixture of reggae and hip hop with jazz embellishments. The track was produced by Protoje and The DrumKeys.

Evaflow explains, “The term Familiar Stranger has many meanings, not all of them romantic. While it represents longing for someone a connection is yet to be made with, or may have already been made with, but is constantly tested by time and space, it also hearkens to the creation of a goal that has not fully manifested in the physical, and an envisioning of a time when it actually does.”

Take a listen to “Familiar Stranger” by Evaflow featuring Sra Lugo. The lyric video was created by Eric Howard. Drop a comment below and let me know what you think about the song.

Hi Everyone!

Today we have “Kaught Up” by Kabaka Pyramid. This is the third single from his forthcoming debut album, Kontraband. No but… this song makes me want someone to sing to me though, or rap… I ain’t mind. Kabaka sings and also raps to his lover, telling her how she’s tied him, she has him Kaught Up in the moment. Here we see the usual style of our favourite wordsmith, sweet wordplay riding the riddim immaculately.

The artwork is by Paige (@PaigeZxmbie) and the animation is by Dezignr Studios (@dezignrstudios). Take a listen to Kaught Up!

“I call this living in the moment, stars are aligned, imma listen to the omen.

I’m having visions of you holding me, so can you notice please, you got me caught up in the moment.”
