Stirring Up The Spirit Of Reggae

Bunny Wailer was a founding member--with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh--of the Wailers, the legendary reggae band. Bunny, the last survivor of that core trio, will perform opening day at the 21st annual Reggae on the River Festival in Piercy, Calif., Aug. 6-8 (tickets are available on eBay). Reggae on the River, a DVD of past festival performances, is out this week. TIME's Christopher John Farley spoke with Bunny.

WHAT MAKES THIS FESTIVAL SPECIAL? It's a Rasta-ized event. It's a very cultural setting. The atmosphere makes you feel very welcome and very united with the next person that you see.
