The 2016 Sierra Nevada World Music Festival started on the wrong note on Friday June 17th as Lee Perry and Don Carlos’ shows were postponed until the next day due to rain. However, the weather on Saturday and Sunday was mild and sunny to the delight of the concert-goers who drove from various parts of the country to the very remote and rural area of Boonville (CA). The venue (Mendocino County Fairgrounds) was packed with novice and seasoned campers, as well as one-day concert attendees. The Festival, though Reggae-based, was very eclectic as usual and boasted musicians from North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Europe and Asia. The format was as in the past: Shows during the day and dancehall at night with Bay area and Kingston sound systems playing classic tunes and the latest hits. There were also food, clothing and art vendors who conducted business amidst a Brazilian Carnival-like atmostphere as Samba dancers and drummers marched around the venue. The three-day festival was closed by Alpha Blondy who delivered a great performance where the message of World Peace was pronounced and clear as the crowd roared in agreement.
