Visiting reggae sensations Etana and Tarrus Riley left reggae fans in awe after an electrifying performance in Carnivore on Saturday night. Etana who was the first to get on stage after curtain raisers Madtraxx and Wyre belted out tune after tune from August Town to her famous collabo Blessing, with fellow Jamaican Albarosie.
Then entered the show stopper Tarrus Riley waving a Kenyan flag as the crowd waved back in Jamaican flags. Constant mention of Kenyan heroes like Jomo Kenyatta made the crowd more wild and so did the sound of the saxophone played by Tarrus band mate , Dean Fraser. It almost felt like the early 90’s listening to KBC English service; true sound of the golden oldies. The most memorable part of the evening was when he played his first hit, She’s Royal. He left his fans begging for an encore.
