Kings & Queens of Roots - (London) Brixton Academy Gig
« on: July 09, 2008, 08:07:41 PM »

Greetings Bredren & Sistren.

Last Saturday Dread and I went to the gig at Brixton Academy to see Taurus Riley,  Queen Ifrica,  Tony Rebel ( he of the Rebel Salute fame ) Etana, Douane Stephenson and headlining the bill, Jah Messenjah - Luciano. 

What talent and devotion there was.  Queen Ifrica sang very conscious lyrics, including her song Daddy Dont Touch Me There about child abuse.  Taurus Riley sang his cover of the John Legend song Stay With Me and She's Royal in his set.  Tony Rebel did a medley of his songs and sang a tribute to Garnet Silk.
Douane Stephenson has the sweetest voice, a gift from Jah, and took me down memory lane with songs like A Little cottage in Negril.  Etana has the strongest voice, and it made me go cold when she sang Redemption Song acapella and the voices of the people were praising Jah.

Then The Messenjah, Luciano took his position on stage.  Dressed in a suit of red gold and green,  carrying a staff.   He sang,  he turned somersaults, he prayed.  The entire audience of about 5,000 people sang along with him and waved the red gold and green flags of His Imperial Majesty.

The entire show was enthralling.   So many rastas congregating together, lifting their hands in praise of The Most High.

It was a demonstration of how brethren and sistren give glory to His Imperial Majesty.  So many people were dressed in African dress,  red gold and green,  women wearing head wraps, dreadlocks covered, dreadlocks free. 

It took over and hour to get in the doors, and everbody was standing patiently in the queue, greeting each other.   Inside the venue there was nothing but respect, and coming out, though it was packed and the exit was narrow, nobody pushed. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the concert, and I give thanks and praises for being able to socialise with so many people all with one love, one aim.

Bless everyone, Jah protect and guide.  RastafarI  Everloving, Everliving, Everlasting.

Blessings Mama Meg,

The I was lucky to see the show I and I brother went to the show on Friday 11th July only to wait and wait for many hours and then the show was cancelled because the artists never showed up,it was rather disappointing as this was going to be I's first concert ever but it never happened.

I really felt for the band though because they were there all ready playing and people in the audience we're becoming very restless InI was just hyped up at actually being there hehe hehe hopefully they will put on another show here in manchester InI really was looking forward to it and I had great seats too ;)

One Love all

Bless up Love Sponge - that must have been a very disappointing night for you and it makes me feel sorry that I was able to boast about the wonderful night Dread and I had at Brixton.

I do hope you will get the opportunity to see Luciano again.   I have several DVD's of his performances at various venues,  and also some of the other artistes such as Queen Ifrica. Taurus Riley and Tony Rebel.   I must try to work out a way to share them with you.

Jah guide and protect.

One Love

Mama Meg.   

P.S  Dread and I have been blessed with a grand-daughter (well my step grand daughter ) born on the 24th June. She is beautiful, and her first name is Genesis.  There will be a naming ceremony where she will receive her Yoruba name as the baby's Daddy is a Yoruba man.  There is a lot of joy in my heart, as you know I love the children.   We send our love and blessings to you and yours.
