Every year since 1993, the world of Reggae gathers together in one village for the Reggae Sumfest Music Festival. At this year’s edition, the 3-time Grammy-winning Reggae group, Morgan Heritage gave a once-in-a-lifetime performance, garnering a lot of traction from the festival’s Jamaican and online audience.
The Royal Family of Reggae who has had a long history with the Sumfest stage dished out a zestful delivery of their classic hits from a catalog stretching beyond two decades, topping their performance off with their latest star-studded album, ‘The Homeland’ which sonically traces Jamaica to Africa and debuted #1 on the iTunes World Music Albums chart in over 20 countries during the first 24 hours of its release.
Based on unanimous feedback from the audience in attendance and online viewers alike, the Grammy Winning trio not only stole the night but stole the entire festival. The group made an emphatic statement at this year’s edition with some hailing it as a defining moment in their career no spanning nearly three decades.
“The musical maturity with Morgan Heritage will always touch my soul”, said one fan. “Morgan Heritage looks the same from over 20 years ago and now”, tweeted another. “Morgan Heritage is a breath of fresh air” said one viewer and another posted “Morgan Heritage, another musical dynasty”.
The iconic culturally driven band which has now become a household name in Reggae circles globally, also took the responsibility to underscore the importance of legends who have influenced the genre’s success with their craft during their spectacular performance. The Trinity dedicated this year’s stellar Reggae Sumfest performance to their late father the Hon. Bishop Ras Denroy Morgan who first brought them to Reggae Sumfest 27 years ago and it was their first time gracing the stage since his ascension last year. They also paid tribute to their long-time producer the late great Bobby “Digital” Dixon, their mentor and uncle the late architect of Reggae, Toots Hibbert, and the legendary Jimmy Cliff.
