SPAIN: Stonebwoy Proves Supremacy At The Rototom Sunsplash Festival.

Published

on

Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall legend christined Livingstone Etse Satekla professionally known within the Reggae/Dancehall world as Stonebwoy, with enormous rhythmic diversity on offer throughout the Rototom Sunsplah chalked huge success after the he delivered a fascinating performance at this years edition of the festival.

With thousands of Reggae/Dancehall fanatics and a fully charged crowd in anticipation of Stonebwoy's performance, he delivered with overwhelming cheers from fans as he performed their favorite and most of his hits songs. His presence also set the whole Rototom Sunsplash awake, as festival goers were still demanding for more performances when the show was over.

This years edition of the Rototom Soundsplash witnessed some number of supporting performance. The Wednesday's main Stage hosted Grammy award winning music group, Morgan Heritage who performed together with Stonebwoy to deliver their undiluted talents to the reserved fans and crowd who roared in excitement to see Stonebwoy perform along side the group.

Stonebwoy's performance with Morgan Heritage.

A more surprising guest was Wednesday’s Lion Stage headliner Stonebwoy. Since recording began in Ghana, singers and players of instruments have come together. The night saw Rototom invite the Ghanaian performer to the Main Stage, while showcasing infectious Afro-Latin rhythms elsewhere. The forward-thinking reggae dynasty Stonebwoy shared everything from the title track to 2017’s album Strictly Roots, to his old favourites "People Dey" and "Hero", to his fresh music "Shuga".

The concert was a rather unique offering to fans who have been eagerly anticipating this event, as it provided fans the opportunity to experience the Reggae/Dancehall and Afro-pop sensation without the typical hordes of fans at his concerts. The event, however, did not disappoint, with "Top Skanka" providing an electric performance that came in three folds, The Liveband Reggae session, Dancehall session and the Afro-Beats session, living uneraseable memories on the minds of the fans.

The roots reggae of the 1970s was embodied by Stonebwoy, (backed by legendary studio band the Roots Radics, featuring bass player Flabba Holt, and guitarists Dwight Pinkney and Steve Golding) blended their distinctive voices over their vast catalogue of music. A very different take on reggae was experienced. Visiting Rototom for the first time, his fun, bouncy, speedy approach to music occupied a similar space in the evening.

Sound system boxes gave way to the Ghanaian performer, as the Main Stage went even further back in time. Evergreen mento group the Jolly Boys have been playing the precursor to reggae and ska since the late 1940s – and show no signs of slowing down. They stuck to mento staples like Hold Him Joe rather than their covers of Iggy Pop’s the Passenger and Bobby Fuller’s I Fought The Law. Before their performance they gave a talk at the Reggae University about how they have endured changing line-ups and fashions over the decades.

Grammy nominee, Stonebwoy, who knows how to engineer an event was locked in from the first minute, and refused to let anyone forget that he was giving this performance his all. He’s clearly been putting in the work to step his game up, but the true edge he has is still his eye as a visual storyteller. His showmanship on the night was a perfect liaison that cemented his worth on the night.

Rototom Sunsplash is a large European reggae festival, it takes place every summer at Benicassim (with beaches in the Mediterranean Sea), a few miles north of Valencia in Spain. Since 1994 it attracts thousands of reggae enthusiasts from all over the world, thanks to a vast cultural and musical program that lasts for a whole week.
