Power of music


Share post:

CONSCIOUSNESS STATE OF MIND was the theme on Friday, the third night of the Naniki Music Festival. Titled Echoes Of The Caribbean, it was held at Holders Hill and all the acts were about love, and black power and livity.

Imani and the Energy Band kicked off the show with energy as usual. Up next was the band Project X. It was a pleasure to see rising star Amber Orano out front. She has grown from singing on Parkinson School’s stage to Reggae On The Hill to the Naniki Music Festival stage.

The empty seats at 9 p.m. didn’t faze the band, who did originals and cover versions. The murmurs of those entering in twos and fours said that they really wanted to see Aswad.

But before Aswad, they had the pleasure of seeing opening act Vanessa Lee. Project X was the backing band so they had double time on stage, and Amber Orano turned over the mic to Vanessa Lee while taking her place at the keyboards. This young lady has versatility.
