Live From Kingston
I’m happy to say last year I went to both shows of Protoje’s bi-annual concert, Live from Kingston. I went to the December show as celebration for my birthday 😀 so I’m gonna fling quite a bit of selfies in here, I was feeling myself 🙂
The December edition of Live from Kingston was at the Shell Band stand in Hope Gardens. Once again we decided to be early but this concert was well awaited so I didn’t mind being early 😀
When we arrived a good amount of people had already arrived, the stage wasn’t raised off the ground like I expected, so we just filled into the space in the semi-circle the crowd formed around the stage. To our enjoyment one of the first things the host said when she came on stage was to come closer to the stage, we’re to feel the sweat droplets of the performers lol, so we went as close to the stage as possible, i.e. pressed against the speakers at the front.
The first act of the night was Runkus a.k.a. Paula Son and the Old Skl Band. It was my second time seeing him perform and he has really grown as an artiste, I enjoyed the performance and his stage presence was so nice he looked like he was having fun.
His little brother was the flag waver 🙂
He was followed by the soulful Sevana. I think I’ve said this in a post before but I’ll say it again I love her voice! I heard her for the first time at the Live from Kingston in February and I’ve been a fan ever since. She sang a cover of Bob Marley’s song, 2 original unreleased songs and her new single Bit Too Shy. I loved seeing this beauty sing her heart out, I could listen to her all night.
There was a break for the band change so selfie break!
The bongo band took the stage next, presenting the No-Maddz, a different genre of music. I’ve seen the No-Maddz perform about a million times and it was great as usual, their energy is always peak.
With the band change comes a Selfie Break!
Followed by the man called Kabaka Pyramid with the Bebble Rock band. He’s no where near being new but I’m a new fan of Kabaka & I liked the performance, he made me appreciate photographers because he was so energetic it was hard to get a good picture of him.
Big up the bands! Live music lives! Selfie break!
And to close the show was the man I’d been waiting for, my favourite reggae artiste, Protoje and his band the Indiggnation. Fun fact: Indiggnation means righteous anger. For his performance I was between singing out the lyrics like the fan girl I am, taking pictures, making videos and staring into his face (being at the front rocks!) I posted some videos on Youtube for you to see, here are the links: I&I, Who Dem A Program & Smash up. As a special treat he brought on Chronixx and called Kabaka back on stage to do a mix of Who Knows and Mi Alright.
I know one thing for sure I’ll definitely be at the next Live from Kingston #GodsWilling
