Lutan Fyah Rocks Amsterdam
June 13 – Lutan Fyah rocked The Sand Beach Sports & Events Studio in Amsterdam on Sunday, May 31 with an outstanding performance. The Rastaman from St. Jago Dela Vega, Jamaica was awesome backed by the House of Riddims Band from Austria. Lutan Fyah took the stage at 9:40 pm with the song ‘Never Stop Praise Rastafari’ which had the 4,000 plus crowd in an uproar. The man from Spanish Town, Jamaica had to rewind ‘Never Stop Praise Rastafari’ for the massive crowd inside the venue. He then greeted the people of Amsterdam and sang ‘Bits And Pieces’ that had the crowd rocking and singing. He followed up with his new freestyle track ‘Go Dung’. Lutan Fyah was on fire in Amsterdam. The massive crowd was like a choir singing along with the true fireman of roots and culture. Lutan Fyah, the cultural ambassador from Jamaica, land of love and culture, then did ‘Blood Stain’ followed by ‘Africa’, the title track from his latest double album. The backing band from Austria was up to the task at hand, as they were steady and in tune. Lutan Fyah was in charge and he had the massive audience on a natural high when he did ‘Rasta Still Deh Bout’, bringing the house down. He then sang ‘Mightier Than Dem All’ and the crowd was in a frenzy, he had to give them an encore and more. The Rastafarian chanter performed for over 40 minutes but the massive crowd wanted more of Jamaica’s cultural ambassador. He then told the massive to ‘Give Thanks And Praises’ then he delivered ‘What A Woe’ which was new to the massive in Amsterdam, but they hung on to every word, consumed by the Rastaman and his lyrics. Lutan Fyah also performed his new hit bound single ‘Nuh Talk’. This was loved greatly by the Amsterdam massive; he had to do two encores of this hit song. Indeed, he gave a magnificent performance that has won himself thousands of fans in The Netherlands. Other performers on the event were I-Wayne, Fantan Mojah, Perfect, Warrior King, Natty King and Duane Stephenson. The SunSplash Festival event was launched for the first time in Amsterdam. The festival content is pure reggae music with artistes from Jamaica and the Caribbean and promoted by Sun Splash Events. Lutan Fyah started 2009 on a high note with the release of his new album ‘Africa’ making strides worldwide, and winning two IRAWMA awards. The stage is definitely set for a great year for the singer.
