KINGSTON, Jamaica – Described by the associated press as prestigious and politically influenced, Etana delivered a stellar performance at the UCLA Jazz Reggae Festival in California. She belted out her hit tunes, Roots, Warrior Love and Blessings to the delight of a sold out crowd of over 11,000.
Dressed in a bright blue cotton skirt and matching T-Shirt branded ‘Raw Soul’, the conservative beauty crooned her rendition of the legendary tune, Don’t Let Me Down. Onlookers were thrilled by her amazing vocals.
Backed by, Detour Posse, her background vocalists Klyve and Tami were in full unison with their enthralling lead songstress. They created a well-harmonized, smooth and soulful set. For Jah Chariot, all hands were in the air showing full appreciation for the conscious filled lyrics shared with the massive Los Angeles audience.
