The event took place in Westmoreland, Jamaican on April 14th.

Western Consciousness 2012One of the most conscious reggae concerts on our local calendar, Western Consciousness was recently held at Paradise Park, Westmoreland. Though most of the island received rainfall throughout the day this did not dampen the performances of the artistes. The line-up of artistes was stellar and among those who had the crowd in an uproar were Jah9, C-Sharp band, Duane Stephenson, Uprising Roots, Prophecy and Capleton. Accompanied by over thirteen British reggae musicians, King Sounds and the Reggae Reggae Sauce Man Levi Roots brought a bit of English flavour to the night.

The queen of reggae Marcia Griffiths, who was dressed in full white, was not to be outdone and was one of the big crowd pleasers. Singer Beres Hammond was his usual self and had the crowd and all the ladies rocking to his every note. During his set he invited Marcia Griffiths back on stage where they did their popular duet Live On. At the end of his performance, president of the Jamaica Broadcasting Commission Cordell Green presented Mr. Hammond with a proclamation from the City of Mount Vernon, New York. Despite the low turnout, Western Consciousness continues to be a great show that seeks to promote positivity in reggae music.

Jamaicans be careful of Levi Roots, he stole the sauce from a real Jamaican in London.
