Love Eternal Jahred & Shawna Namaste – Erupting out of the jungle and flowing from the beach to the rest of the world comes Hawaii’s own Love Eternal. This roots reggae and soul rock band perfectly energizes musical movement with the power of their righteous message.  Led by a male and female vocalist duo that resembles the vitality of Black Uhuru combined with the soul of Bob and Rita Marley,

Love Eternal enlists their music as a vehicle for conscious change.  Lead singers and songwriters Jahred and Shawna Namaste sprouted Love Eternal where forest meets sand in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA.  Uniting infectious rhythms with unique melodies and harmonies played from the heart, they deliver a compelling voice of peace, love, and world community.
