Reggae in Ya House continued to blaze its own trail with some fiery performances from some of the island’s top reggae artistes.
With Mother’s Day just days away, the live show featured a touching mother-daughter session with hostess Peach Bless and her daughter Ashe singing their hearts out.
Peach Bless opened with her own original material and was impactful with New Life. Her daughter Ashe, who is following in her musical footsteps, is a regular on the NIFCA stage and made her debut performance in her mother’s production. She delivered a powerful performance of Lioness on the Rise by Queen Ifrica. She was awesome as her smooth tone seems tailor-made for the genre.
The online show focuses on promoting local music. Among those featured in the second edition was Daniel Medford. The world class, seasoned entertainer, who was simply grateful for the opportunity to perform again, was a whole vibe from the outset.
He took his appearance outside the box and outside his house, adding to the dramatic effect by starting his set in front of a bonfire. He took the show to another level, delighting viewers with his showmanship. Even though he was shrouded in darkness, his voice was captivating.
The musician showed his skill on keyboards with a jam session that started with Bob Marley’s Who the Cap Fit. He displayed stellar vocals in Better Apart as well as Daniel in the Lion’s Den and appealed to the ladies as he crooned Come Away and In Your Heart.
Another performer tugging at the heartstrings of the ladies was Sonny Meraki. It was difficult not to be entranced by his velvety lyrics and he was in fine voice for Baby Girl and Vibrations. It was pure magic when he reached for his guitar to perform Sizzla Kalonji’s Woman I Need You. He added his own essence as he changed up the vibe of the session with this acoustic offering.
Where many of the performers brought a mellow vibe, Triple X was the complete opposite with his spitfire style of delivery. His set included Biker’s Anthem and the lyrical Mr Politician.
In the final moments, reggae lovers were finally able to enjoy the much-requested Pressure Point. It was only fitting, since co-singer Supa Star was in the week’s line-up; they teamed up to satisfy the audience with the popular hit. The artiste also dropped his new song Wid Them. (STT)
