Ethiopia will be taking centre stage in the year of ‘Celebrating Africa’. Tonight on the Lion Stage we will pay tribute to the African continent, considered as the birth place of the Rastafarian movement, by means of the most special shows of the current edition of the festival: the concert of the Ethnopia Reggae Music Ambassadors.
A performance which can count on the backing of the Ministerio de Turismo de Etiopía as well as permitting some of the leading Ethiopian reggae artists and musicians to deliver two special concerts on the Lion Stage, the first of which is taking place early this morning.
This way Raga, Haile Roots, Sami Dan Henok and Mehari Brothers, Chelina, Tsedi, Ras Yohannes y Yohana will come out as the musical ambassadors of their country in this unique musical project, which will complete itself in December with an exceptional show in Addis Abeba, headlining Steel Pulse.
