Known for conscious hits such as ‘Height of Great Men’ and ‘Dollar Coin’, Garrison recording artiste Ryno last Thursday departed the island for St. Kitts as part of their three (3) day Music Festival held at the Warner Park Stadium in the capital Basseterre. However, before arriving in the Lesser Antilles state the ‘Seet Deh’ singer made a quick stop in St. Johns, Antigua invading the very popular Jam Corner Street Carnival



 The celebration is one of many events on the roster to mark the country’s Emancipation. Armed with nothing more than a microphone and a calypso rhythm, Ryno delivered a short, yet fiery set alongside some of the island’s top soca practitioners much to the delight of the over 2,500+ patrons in attendance. 

The Coast Night Club followed suit and was dealt a similar treatment. Friday morning, the artiste whose given name is Romane Anderson left for St. Kitts to attend the festival’s official press conference, joining fellow entertainers: Yellow Man, Cocoa Tea, Demarco, Konshens and Gyptian. Following performances by Reggae icons: Cocoa Tea, Yellow Man and Maxi Priest; Ryno took the stage at approximately minutes after midnight delivering an energetic twenty minute set, commencing with a ladies segment before deviating into more conscious material from his growing catalogue as the record crowd (estimated at approximately  10,000+) appeared keen to the offerings.

He was soon followed by Konshens, Demarco and Gyptian who closed day two of the event. In its 15th staging the St Kitts Music Festival has earned the reputation of being one of the most diversified musical show in the Caribbean by blending rich exciting music with exhilarating performances.
