"Caribbean music has been influential around the world from Bob Marley all the way to Sean Paul, and has been injected in a lot of the music we listen to today from Top 40 all the way to EDM," said co-founder Kiwami Livingston.

"We created Electric Karnival to highlight what makes caribbean music so special while appealing to wider audiences; directly exposing them to our artists, music, and culture, while bringing the fusion that's been very popular in each of the genres the past couple years."
