Ska and rocksteady themes, a rebel roots reggae and the jazz influences.
A rainy second day of the festival. When Alpheus and the Mighty Megaton came on stage, the Rain hadn’t finish its work yet.
The jamaican singer, brought up in England, started with a few ska and rocksteady themes that made us forget about the wet surroundings and dance everyone who attended to have fun.
The show that came afterwards was truly amazing. Four women from different countries and cultures, members of the same band Ladama, put together different sounds all mixed: soul, pop, colombian cumbia, brazilian maracatu, joropo from Venezuela, becoming themes even bigger and building up a modern sound that gets the name of Pan-latinx.
Later on arrived Mo’Kalamity with the Wizards, an artist that in the last 15 years she has created a name with a very special style. She appeared on stage with such an hipnotic and soul voice that not only got the public, but also many mates that collaborate and play with her. A rebel reggae roots, singing with the heart. The public got there in multitudes and they could enjoy the extra time of a concert that could be considered the best one of the Lion Stage these days.
And the great return of the Mediterranean Roots at Rototom Sunsplash number 25.
The band from Valencia presented their new work, launched in January 2018. The jazz influences mixed with the unique sound that defines the band. The new themes are very sticky but also they can be appreciated by the most refined palates of Rototom.
The sun already shines as every morning and it gets the time to close the show in the Lion StAge. The public gets back smiling, ready to get some rest and come back the next morning, today, day 3!
