Luciano from early has been a long fan of mine. He's right up there with Garnett Silk, Morgan's Heritage, Buju Banton, Etana and the likes! 

I like him not only because of his conscious music, but his unchanging principles, regardless. He boldly denounces slackness and vulgarity both in society and in the music industry, regardless of the event, the patrons, or stage he is on, that's him.

And that he did again during his supposedly 'pass through' performance along with his long time friend, Mikey General, at IRITS recently.  Click here to watch the video.

He Drew From His Top Hits!

fans_of_luciano_at_irits_rasta_village

Despite a small, 'family type' atmosphere, he didn't hold back on his best hits, neither did he relented on denouncing the slackness in the music, the bleaching, and other immoral tendencies he believe his people are drawn into.

He also lamented the leadership and state of world in his song 'Ooh La La La' to the beat of quadrille type music.

Other top hits he drew on were  (at least I know them as... :-)

  • The Prophet Rides Again
  • Jah send I as a messenger
  • Took to little trip try to find myself (He is my friend)
  • Sweep over my soul
  • Where there is life there is hope
  • Imagine, living in a world (Your world and mine)
  • Final Call
  • Give me a one way ticket (to the rapturous applause of the patrons), and
  • Culture Shock (bemoning for those who are bleaching) &
  • Over The Hills

And during his commanding act, he also inserted popular renditions from other greats in the music, including his idol, Dennis Brown's Deliverance Will Come,  Bunny Wailer's Armageddon, and Frankie Paul's Fire deh a muss-muss tail and Pass Di Kushumpen.

And about Mikey General?

Can I be honest with you? Truthfully, I didn't remember a lot about him, but I was really impressed by his vocals. He provided the perfect foil for the messenger,!

At several points, even taking the lead role! I'll certainly be listening to him a lot more now.

Pictures From His Performance

Of course (I know you'd expect that) I have more pics!

  • Are there different types of Reggae? Good question! Musical genres usually have subgenres and fusions that create different sounds. Is it the same with Reggae music?
