Din 2009, Reggae pon di Hills a adunat in fiecare vara, amatori de sunete cu influenta jamaicana din Romania si nu numai.

Primul artist confirmat pentru editia Reggae pon di Hills 2013 este englezul EL FATA.
“It’s the sheer joyousness of El Fata’s music that hits you first, an impact created by thewarm sincerity of his vocals, and a succession of uplifting melodies,conscious lyrics,and blend of musical styles that embraces reggae,funk,dancehall,pop,jazz,andAfrican beats. “World music” is a term that is now over-subscribed,except it isimpossible to describe what El fata does any other way.That is because his inspirationis liable to arrive from anywhere. It is universal, and so too,is his audience,since hismusic is all exclusive and everyone is welcome,irrespective of nationality or creed. Born in Lagos,he started out as a drummer in his school band,During his teens,hediscovered reggae music and turned singer after being inspired by Jamaican acts suchas Michael Rose, Don Carlos, Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley, Cocoa Tea and DennisBrown.
