Luciano and the Reggae Angels are bringing a strong conscious roots reggae package on tour in September, 2016. Luciano is currently very popular worldwide. He has been heavily booked throughout this year, constantly performing on countless shows and festivals in Africa, Canada, Europe, South America, California, Hawaii, New York, DC, Florida and in the Caribbean Islands. Luciano has one of the strongest tour histories in North America of all the reggae artists. His latest album Zion Awake was recently nominated for the Grammy.
Here is the youtube link of a video drop with Luciano promoting the September 2016 tour.
Luciano combines his love of God and beauty into a soulful, spiritual blend of rock and R&B-tinged reggae. Born Jepther McClymont in Davey Town, Jamaica, Luciano began his musical endeavors singing in church and later on he moved to Kingston to pursue music professionally. It was suggested by one of his mentors Homer Harris that McClymont go by the singing name Luciano, a name that paralleled his extraordinary vocal skills with those of the world-renowned operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti. The name was also somewhat prophetic: “Luci” means bearer of light. Luciano now shines as one of the brightest lights in the Jamaican reggae music constellation.
Co-billing the tour with Luciano is the Reggae Angels. The Reggae Angels have recently performed on many of the festivals including Reggae in the Hills, the Oroville Rock Reggae Jamfest, Reggae on the River, the Trinity River Jamboree, the Bay Vibes Festival, the One Love One Heart Reggae festival, the World One festival, the Northwest World Reggae Fest, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, the Seattle International Reggae Festival, Reggae in the Desert in Las Vegas, the Wild Mountain Fair and the Pitzer Reggae Festival. The Reggae Angels toured North America in 2015 backed by Sly and Robbie and the Taxi Gang. That was their second US tour backed by the Rhythm Twins.
The Reggae Angels music consists of lyrical guidance for themselves and others towards righteous living – proverbial words and music. The Reggae Angels have toured North America, Hawaii, Canada, South America, Europe and Africa. They have co-billed tours with Andrew Tosh, Everton Blender, Michael Rose, Don Carlos, Anthony B, Junior Reid, The Abyssinians, Sugar Minott, Warrior King, Frankie Paul and Sly & Robbie and the Taxi Gang as well as touring on their own.
The Reggae Angels latest release was The Way. This is serious message music in collaboration with the multi-Grammy award winning legends Sly and Robbie on bass and drums with the Taxi Gang, featuring Franklyn ‘Bubbler’ Waul on keyboards, Nambo Robinson on trombone and Stepper on saxophone. Also featured are Dwight Pinkney on guitar and Laurie Lewis on violin.
The Way brings the Reggae Angels 13 CD catalogue from strength to strength. It fires up the listener with spiritual messages of wisdom and encouragement. Over the past two decades the Reggae Angels have been consistently bringing the world sincere message music. Their live show is well groomed after years of spot dates, touring and recording.
