So lets start in order: a magnificent start of the great bassist Lloyd Parks at the head of his We The People Band began to heat up the atmosphere before the arrival of Josey Wales which, together with Brigadier Jerry gave a sample of the great dancehall from the past to get completely fresh memories of the festival this year alongside the presentation of Super Cat high yesterday afternoon.
The first segment of “Colonel”Josey Wales has seen him reach high energy levels on the rhythms fired up high by the We The People and then intense interpretations of classics such as “Leggo my Hand”, he closed a exhibition carrying to the festival for the first time, the country music with his “bushwacked” and chronics of how ironic would it have been to escape from death in a robbery attempt of which, however, he came out with serious gunshot wounds.
Brigadier Jerry, to follow, has proven that a DJ style can attract the most varied sources of Jamaican popular imagination such as the Gospel and sacred music and sang with great conviction, his faith in Rastafari explaining the positive values ??of their music. This first selection was crowned with the two together on the same stage to highlight the differences with Briggy style more relaxed and certainly Josey, vocally, more “evil”.
Decidido, cambio de escenario y sube en ese momento sobre el palco acompañada por su banda, desde muy joven, la graciosa Hollie Cook: Hay casi un contraste entre los ritmos tensos influenciados por raices inglesas de los años setenta y su enfoque vocal muy etereo y soñador. Hollie pone aparte inmediatamente la emoción de estar sobre un palco de esta importancia y gira con gracia sobre él, respondiendo con placer a la incitación del público.
After Hollie, the Main Stage pause atmospheres with Jamaican roots with good Chambao concert, Spanish flamenco artist who modernized with an approach very “world music” pop origins and influences taken. The concert started in a hypnotic way where highlights focused on the influences of Arabic music in flamenco. The band brilliantly follows the singer with acoustic, flamenco guitar and there are obviously alternating slow moments, however, there where also times when the pulsations increased; gotten to one point the voice of Chambao ended relaxing with a beautiful rhythm reggae.
For the finale we return to Jamaica with the magical evening of a great interpreter of contemporary reggae Jah Cure, the tormented artist voice and a variety of songs between romanticism and consciously Rasta “reality songs”. Cure starts in the fourth part in great shape and appears to be in one of the greatests time in his career which is reflected in his latest work “The Cure”. His voice reminds some of the most difficult moments of Beres Hammond and some resemblance to the box that reminds who the young Gregory Isaacs is. The show was completely vibrant and had very nice moments: Jah Cure mentioned Sizzla and Richie Spice, dedicated the tormented song “Reflections” to Buju Banton, spreads and throws a number of shirts to the public and after several classics like “Longing for” alternating with fragments of his new work. This finally concludes with a amazing show as it has been said, “Who the cap fit” of Bob Marley.
The Spirit of Bob and the Wailers can never leave the festival; tomorrow, in fact, we will expect the myth of the lone survivor of this experience Jah B Bunny Wailer.
