French artists played in Paris at Reggae Acoustic Club.

Sampler

A brilliantly conceived show took place on February 4, 2011 at the New Morning in Paris. The concept: hearing artists from the reggae scene in an acoustic setting.

The backing band (Acoustic Club Band) consisting of a guitarist (Kubix), a saxophonist / pianist (Bost, from the duo BOST & BIM), a drummer (Nico) and a bassist (Manu) offered the New Morning massive the back catalogues from adventure seeking pioneers Mo'Kalimity and Lyricson, two artists living in France native from Africa.

Mo’kalamity -born in Cap Verde- is the rising roots female singer of French reggae scene. She released her second album 'Deeper Revolution' in 2010. Lyricson born in Guinea is one of the most talented singjays of France for more than 10 years now. His last - and anticipated - album 'Messages' has been avalaible since November 2010.

Performed acoustically, the songs took on their own form and found their true essence. As a bonus some dancehall queens (with the dancer Amzone) took to the stage and some covers of Bob Marley were performed in duet by Mo and Lyricson. Finally Lyricson put his own mark on the Jamrock riddim.

All in all, a beautiful evening that should be repeated several times a year.

Just two words: Big Up.
