About

About: Rootfire was established in 2010 by a group of friends committed to reggae music and roots culture, who wanted to share information and inspiration about the scene they lived and breathed. Over the past eight years, Rootfire has grown to become the voice of the progressive reggae community. It’s a place to discover new music, connect, and, most importantly, participate in the international movement to create a conscious way of life.

Mission: To empower artists, and inspire an active, healthy lifestyle that is surrounded by great music and friends. We seek to positively contribute and participate in the progressive roots community.

FAQ

What does the name mean?

The name Rootfire tells the story of a fire that starts underground, deep in the roots of a tree. The tree burns unnoticed until the center of its trunk catches and fire opens it up in a blaze. At the center of Rootfire’s RF logo is a very small bird nestled between the two letters. The bird is flying forward with an egg in its mouth while looking backwards over its shoulder, a Ghanaian Sankofa symbol. It reminds us to acknowledge the progress that came before (look back over your shoulder), to take what’s good from where we came from (the egg), and to keep moving forward to create the future.
