Standing outside under Curry Up Now’s awning, Jose Pangan, Chris Cortez, and I make small talk. They just finished their performance. They are still sweating.
What does reggae mean to you?
Jose Pangan: Positive messages and the true stories of life. It’s a good way to express yourself.
Chris Cortez: It’s life. Rest a bit from the daily grind. I turn to reggae to turn it off. It beams of sunshine. It hits your soul. It’s the freedom to express yourself.
