Tonight on Roots Wise Reggae, host and heartical selector Rockin’ Donna will speak with internationally acclaimed reggae artist, Luciano. Luciano and his band Ikronic will perform Wednesday, July 3rd, in Kansas City, outdoors at Californo’s in Westport. KKFI’s Rockin’ Donna will MC the event.
With the release of his landmark CD “Where There Is Life” in 1995, Luciano emerged as one of the most important reggae singers in decades and the greatest hope for roots reggae’s survival in the digital dancehall era. Since that much acclaimed release, Luciano’s music has been consistently praised for imparting sentiments of spiritual salvation, Rastafarian edification and African repatriation.
In these troubled times, Luciano’s engaging baritone resonates like an instrument possessing the power to comfort, enlighten and inspire. Luciano has held steadfast to enriching Rasta principles; these positive lyrical themes have justifiably earned him the title of The Messenger. However, the humble singer also refers to himself as the child of a king which is the title of his latest CD.PLAYLIST
