Reggae show a delight
THOUSANDS of reggae music fans invaded Kensington Oval for the Hennessy artistry show on Saturday night.
They were not disappointed as they were treated to all shades of reggae from some of Jamaica’s most outstanding musicians who have made it big world-wide.
The visitors were well supported by Barbadians acts who proved they could hold their own on the international stage.
The evening which ran into the early hours of Sunday morning was a musical showcase of the classical and the contemporary .
NexCyx of Barbados, billed as alternative band but with the ability to be versatile got the show in full swing before a large, growing and an appreciative crowd. Buggy Nhakente, reggae artist, also of Barbados held the attention of the audience with an infectious musical set comprising his original selections.
Ten time grammy award winning Third World band was next on stage. They thrilled their fans with hits like 96 Degrees, Try Jah Love and Now That We Have Found Love. They also paid a musical tribute to fellow Jamaican Gregory Issac.
Queen Ifrica of Jamaica also was a favourite as she embraced those present with her message of standing up for justice.
But the Kensington posse had no intention to go home yet, they still had lots of energy for three time grammy winner Damian Junior Gong Marley and Sizzla Kalongi who carried them through to the early morning with after hit.
