International reggae superstar Etana has recovered well from her health scare earlier this year, and will once again hit the road on a major tour in the United States.
The tour will head through states such as North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Colorado, Ohio, Minnesota and Washington, DC during the first two weeks.
“Right now, mi ready. I have been taking better care of myself in terms of my diet and exercise. And now, I am pumped up and excited about this tour. I have to take on this road to promote my music and take care of my family; as an artiste, you have to take on the road to make this happen,” an elated Etana said.
In February, Etana collapsed at her Florida home just a few weeks after completing a successful three-week European gig that saw her performing alongside veteran reggae artiste Mykal Rose. Her previous tour saw her performing at club shows in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
Now, she will be taking on 22 states in the USover the next five weeks alongside her Raw-Soul Rebels band.
“I am really excited because I will be performing in internationally recognised venues so I will now be on the radar of mainstream music, which is a great move when it comes to the business area of music…right now, mi nah drop no ketch!” she said.
The first two weeks will see her performing in the midwest area of the USA, then she will team up with Anuhea, a Hawaiian contemporary folk-rock singer and songwriter of Caucasian, Hawaiian and Chinese descent, to do shows along the west coast of the country.
“Anuhea is a great singer and a wonderful artiste. I am looking forward to the experience,” she
