On November 18, 2011, Etana performed at New Morning in Paris.

It was roots, rock reggae at New Morning on November 18 when Etana, the new Queen of New Roots Reggae, performed in Paris and promoted her new album 'Free Expression'. This spiritual and soulful young singer from Jamaica is planting her seed in a male dominated reggae industry.

Meta Dia, singer from Senegal living in New York, USA, was the opening artist of the show. He delivered an acoustic set, and is very talented with original material and fresh compositions. His powerful lyrics and international sound makes him a successful up and coming artist, and Paris hopes to see him in headlining a show in the near future.

After Meta Dia's performance, the members of French backing band Dub Akom Band appeared on stage to back Etana. Smiling with enthusiam, she gave a exceptional show, performing her big tunes during her set such as Jah Chariot and August Town as well as some covers tunes by Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff such as Rasta Man Chant, The Harder they Come and Simmer Down.

Etana enjoyed herself in France and remarked during her press conference: "Onstage I am sincere and true and that's what the public likes". She finished her set with I am Not Afraid as the audience cheered her on.
