Reggae Forever: Etana talks to Afrofusion TV
June 15, 2017 § Leave a comment
Reggae singer and songwriter Etana swung through Washington, DC on June 11th to perform live at the Hamilton DC, and graciously made time to chat with us at Afrofusion TV. As she prepares to release her fifth studio album, the Jamaican singer born Shauna McKenzie is on a whirlwind road show dubbed the “Reggae Forever Tour,” taking her inspirational and uplifting songs to the masses worldwide. As is the case with a number of artists associated with the movement, Etana is a bit wary of the “reggae revival” label, and gave a very measured and thoughtful response in our interview.
Etana’s DC, show was opened by An’Jahla and Ilavibez, a local DC reggae band with a wicked drummer. Big ups and respect to promoter Wally Kings and manager Andre Morris of Freemind Music, not to mention the management folks at the Hamilton for making it all possible. Check out our interview above, along with some of the photographs we took of the show after the jump.
Etana continues her tour in Texas and Louisiana next week; be sure to check out more info on the Reggae Forever tour and her upcoming album at her website, and you can follow her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages. Bless…
