Party number four, with which the Rototom Sunsplash reaches its equator this friday, has also been characterized by being under the banner of the great eclecticism that exists between the different subgenres of reggae.

The music that moves us often has the power to make us travel virtually without moving from where we are and to remind us of past times. And the great eclecticism of this third night of the Rototom 2022 had the ability to take us to many different places and times.

The first stop was the birthplace of reggae at a crucial moment in the development of the music tradition that we love the most.
