How start this Project?
It all started 15 years ago, when i discovered the impactful vibrations that reggae had in me in a positive way.
It was these vibrations that led me to be a fanatic for the whole reggae culture. From party to party and festival to festival, I noticed that in Portugal, being a small country, the artists did not have enough bases to make their work known.

10 years promoting reggae
In these 10 years, many initiatives have been carried out by Selajahfary, explaining some, since the creation of a Portuguese platform to promote reggae, solidarity actions and thematic parties, launch of the first physical magazine in Portugal (which for lack of support was on Stand-by ), and a few more …
In May 2020 we decided to take the first international step, creating a platform with all the necessary bases for the promotion of artists as well as news and releases from around the world.

Thinking about the future, and knowing how uncertain it is, we are sure of one thing … Reggae will always be the way!
