We will present, on 9 July, the second edition of the Rototom Launch Party in the Royal Botanic Gardens of the Complutense University of Madrid, with Alpha Blondy from the Ivory Coast headlining an event that also includes Iseo & Dodosound with the Mousehunters, Funkiwi’s and Mas Jahma.
Alpha Blondy, considered to be one of the most outstanding voices on the contemporary international reggae scene, especially in West Africa, and a major roots figure in the recent decades, will perform as a part of Madrids ‘Botanic Nights’ programme, together with his band, The Solar System, the twelve tracks from his latest album, Positive Energy.
After visiting cities like Bergamo, Modena, London, Barcelona, Murcia, Tenerife, Ibiza and Valencia, the festival brings this special tour to a close, promoting our 2017 edition, that will be held in Benicassim (Castellon), 12 to 19 August, with the theme Celebrating Africa, and that boasts headliners such as Shaggy, Gentleman & Ky-Mani Marley, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Youssou NDOUR, Inna de Yard, Black Roots and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80.
