Lady Saw gave a stunning performance at St. Kitts Music Festival


True to expectations, the second night of the St. Kitts Music Festival totally eclipsed the first night in terms of attendance, expectation and delivery. It was just phenomenal as it was truly remniscent of a tremendous “block party”.

Quite fittingly, the show began with the sweet strains of the steel pan as the Cayon High School Steel Orchestra paid glowingly tribute to the late local pan genius Boots, who met an untimely death, earlier this year.

The school students showed range and impressive natural ability as they touched on various genres of music. There presentation was a beacon of hope for the preservation of steel pan music, which has been forever linked with the Caribbean region.

Pluto Shervington was immaculate, as he resurrected the hits from his early years and used his expertise to lure the entire audience to share in the joys of his music. He may have been an artiste from the 70's but the words of his songs were fresh on the tongues of many.

Tessanne Chin was charm and promise as she burst on stage with her hit single “Hideway”. She had the audience grooving to her rich vocals.

The Jamaican singer seemingly was promising the audience of even greater things to come as she soothed their souls with music. She continues to grow rapidly. The last time she was in St. Kitts, she was singing back up for Jimmy Cliff, but Friday night’s performance was indicative of her tremendous growth as a solo artiste.
