ore 23.00: Anthony B

ingresso libero

Blair grew up in rural Clark’s Town in the northwestern parish of Trelawny in Jamaica. During his youth, his favorite singers were reggae legends Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, musicians who strongly influenced his own style. Peter Tosh’s influence can definitely be heard in Anthony B’s vocal delivery and revolutionary stance. Anthony B adopted Rastafari movement beliefs as a teenager, a decision which was not well-received by his family. Determined Anthony B refused to give up his religion and moved to the Kingston suburb, Portmore where he was able to perfect his artistic talents. In 1988, he befriended reggae artists such as Determine, Mega Banton, Ricky General and Terror Fabulous. He hooked up with Little Devon the Half Pint sound-a-like singer and made his debut single “The Living is Hard” on the Wizard label in 1993. Anthony B worked with many different producers and finally teamed up with Richard “Bello” Bell, creating hits such as “Fire Pon Rome”, “Raid Di Barn”, “Rumour”, and “RepentanceTime”. Anthony B’s 1996 debut album entitled Real Revolutionary in the U.K. and So Many Things in the U.S. was highly acclaimed in the reggae community.In late 1997, Anthony B released Universal Struggle which showed that he had a consistent, high-caliber talent. Anthony B tours extensively in Europe and North America and is known for his fiery, high-energy performances.

ore 21.30: Raphael & Eazy Skankers

Il viaggio musicale di Raphael Emmanuel Nkereuwem (nato a Savona nel 1986 da padre nigeriano e madre italiana) inizia nel 2002 quando con l’amico e bassista Andrea Bottaro fonda la reggae band EAZY SKANKERS. Con una formazione di sei elementi ed un sound a metà tra roots reggae ed il reggae moderno, Raphael & Eazy Skankers intraprendono da subito un’intensa attività live, sia come headliner che come gruppo spalla. Nel 2004 partecipano al Rototom Sunsplash esibendosi sul palco dell’area Showcase, mentre l’anno seguente, in seguito alla vittoria nell’European Reggae Contest, si aggiudicano l’esibizione sul palco principale del festival, nella serata che vede come ospiti i Black Uhuru.. Nel 2006 la band vince il contest per l’Arezzo Wave Love Festival, esibendosi sul main stage, nello stadio comunale di Arezzo, assieme ad artisti del calibro di Sinéad O’Connor, Giuliano Palma & The Bluebeaters, Gogol Bordello e Babazula. nel 2008 la band si reca a Kingston, capitale della Giamaica, per la registrazione del primo album “To The Foundation”. Il 2011 si apre con la pubblicazione su vinile di “Good Old vibes “, singolo di Raphael per l’etichetta inglese Peckings Studio One, sul lato B di Christopher Ellis (figlio del grande Alton).
