  • ~ Welcome to the 22nd Annual ~

    sierra nevadaworld music festival

    Roots music is culture and tradition.

    Its the oral history of experiences lived by

    common men and women. It reminds us of the

    things were supposed to remember. Its about

    love and freedom and the human heart and

    soul. Its the message of the Patois

    and the Mystery schools.

    ~ From our hearts to yours ~

    maria ngartwakenmandala.com

    I was born in an artistic family in Hong Kong. My father was a Chinese artist & teacher. In December 2004, I attended Art as a Spiritual Path mandala painting workshop. As I began to paint, I felt a strong connection with mandala art. The experience of painting my first mandala was amazing. It was truly a spiritual awakening and heart-opening journey. My mind was so peaceful. I could look at my mandala for hours and feel happy for no reason. It changed my way to see the world as everything is infinite. The mandala, for me, is a spiritual teacher. I learned to enjoy living in the unknown with full trust. I will continue to share my love and passion through mandala art.

    Schoolmates including David Hinds, songwriter and lead singer, and Selwyn Brown, who also writes and plays keyboards, formed Steel Pulse in England in the 1970s. Their 1978 debut album Handsworth Revolution is a classic. After its release, Steel Pulse became one of roots reggaes most well-regarded artists. The band performs to audiences thirsty for their brand of truth and rights. Aligning themselves with Rock Against Racism in the late 70s, Steel Pulse has continued to create music that addresses timely social issues. SNWMF is pleased to welcome Steel Pulse back to Boonville!
