It does so with several important inaugurations in its cultural areas, this evening the programme of the Social Forum will get under way, as will the screenings of the Film Festival and a strong feminine side, musically speaking.
Tonight the story on Main Stage will be told in feminine tone, with Chambao’s concert –a Project led by La Mari- who have prepared a special show for the Rototom Sunsplash audience, and the show by one of the surprises in recent years on the reggae scene outside of Jamaica, Hollie Cook (UK), daughter of Paul Cook, drummer for the Sex Pistols, and Jeni Cook, choral singer for Culture Club.
Jamaica will once again have a strong presence with Jah Cure, who today opens Main Stage, and the joint show of Josey Wales and Brigadier Jerry.
Showcase will begin its nearly 10 hours of uninterrupted music at 20:45, with the winners of the Reggae Contest Iberia 2014 Malaka Youth (Malaga), that make it the festival’s stage with the most hours of music and shows. The Dub Academy catches the eye tonight, due to the return, after nearly a ten year absence, of the legendary Mad Professor, student of the enlightened Lee Perry, about whom there will be the premier in the Rototom Susnsplash Film Festival on Friday 21 of the documentary Lee Scratch Pery’s Vision of Paradise.
