RAS HAITRM SERVES UP SUPERB RASTAFARIAN SHOW

MBABANE – Great stage presence, rhythmic energy and what you would say spiritually best describes last Saturday’s show.


This was at Solanis Shisanayama. It is not every day that reggae fans get treated to a live show.
Often times, they have to wait for either the Bob Marley or Peter Tosh memorial shows, for them to watch live acts and that is why when acts like Ras Haitrm come to the country, they know that they cannot afford to miss out.


Performance


Upon his performance on stage, one would think that fun lovers were possessed as they couldn’t control their excitement the moment they heard Ras Haitrm’s voice.  One fan even said; “There’s a name for what we are feeling right now, its hallelujah moments.
The existential angst that plagues your daily existence becomes a faint echo and in that moment there is only you and music, nothing else.”


Despite the wet weather that almost ruined the night with heavy  rain fall, fun lovers kept their cool and were patient enough to wait for it to clear before  moving over to the dance floor.
 The Mozambican reggae superstar delivered a two-hour long set with mostly what he termed, ‘Rastafarian spiritual songs’ and dance hall music, taking  the audience straight to the heart of Jamaica, where the genre was founded.


Flawless


The sound and beats were flawless and the audience loved it!
During his set, Ras Haitrm played bass drums, percussion and other traditional African instruments and in-between these he got to explain how he got the name ‘Ras Haitrm’.


Anointed


“My name comes from Ethiopia, anointed by a Rasta friend, and embodies the meaning ‘Man of God’, reason why I am very spiritual and my music is sentimental too,” he said. 
The show which lasted hours proved to be a success, having had fun lovers dance from the time it started up until around 3 in the morning when everyone was getting ready to make their way back home.
