The Rototom Sunsplash reaches its ecuador with a strong European flavor. Although Thursday was the only day that the Main Stage didn’t couny with the participation of any Jamaican artists, the essence of the Caribbean island will remain present as a tribute. The third and last of three tributes that Rototom Sunsplash has prepared to celebrate the 70th birthday of Bob Marley, the Jamaican international artist of all time, who will be singing with a little spanish accent. La Mala Rodríguez, Amparo Sánchez, Roberto Sánchez, el Sr. Wilson, el Payoh SoulRebel y Salda Dago soulrebel Payoh will be making their own versions of some of the most internationally known reggae artist of all time in the show “Singing Marley” , a unique and unrepeatable show promises to surprise the audience of the festival.
These same artists will visit the Reggae University during the afternoon to discuss and analyze, in one of the ACR Meetings,, Marleys influence in the Spanish music scene.
These last will not be the only example of mixture of rhythms, styles and generations of the day. The crazyness of the British Bad Manners who in the late seventies returned to fashion the fusing ska with punk attitude and energy, the veteran Italian Africa Unite, who come to Rototom with their new album under his arm, and the positivity of the messages of German Uwe Banton will all be combined in the Main Stage on a night of special European flavor.
