Report of DAY 2 with LA PANDILLA VOLADORA, PROTOJE AND U ROY!

Second day of the festival opens with the usual activities which typify the event: culture and information combined with the music from the morning until late at night. What makes Rototom Sunsplash that special is the power to fully captivate audience's attention for an entire week, that is the reason why every meeting at Reggae University with international guests was over followed and also the several daily dance' and physical's courses became a center of great interest.

La Pandilla Voladora is the crazy, bright band that opened the big list of night concerts. The band arises from the cooperation between well-known musicians and their willpower to have fun while playing music together. It is the fun itself what made the show pleasant and full of different music styles. A "real" party, with happiness and smiles sprinkled all over the place.

Rototom 2013

It is now the turn of the young  jamaican singer Protoje, nowadays an accomplished and successfull artist with special vocal's tones and a personal music style that immediately captures crowd's attention and keep it focused until the concert turns to the end. He obtained an excellent celebrity with his springboard album "The 7th year itch", and, launched by his great advertising singles, he reached Benicassim with the coming out of his new project, “The 8 year affair", showing additional improvement and self awareness. His success is achieved in co-operation with his cousin and producer Don Corleon, skilled master controller of sounds and frequencies. Rototom's fans eagerly sang all Protoje most popular songs such as JA, Dread or Arguments along with the newest Kingston be Wise, This is not a Marijuana Song and I&I.

The Main Stage closes with the concert of one of the most famous exponent of the jamaican deejay style: U Roy, that since the seventies has been an example in this topic for the entire world. A great artist and character, one of a kind, with his particular voice's skills that are fully recognized by Rototom fans, lovers of who made the history of jamaican music. After years spent in producing, after a long productive ten years stop, in 2012 he edits his new album "Pray fi di People", as always defined by his typical important and conscious Rastafari lyrics. On the stage, he offered his entire wide repertory, he performed all the famous songs that made him popular like Rule the Nation and Version Galore that guide Benicassim people to the end of the show.

At this point the crowd moves to other stages, night is getting the better as the desire to dance and listen to great music. Nobody wants to sleep, the festival must be lived at the fullest.
