Reggae time @Riesling Open festival
On Saturday evening, 17 September 2016 in Wormeldange (LU), the Poll Fabaire winery court was full of good vibes, even if Mother Nature sent us some rain, as it was announcing the end of a season and the beginning of a new one. Well, Abdou Day and his band were definitely there to warm up the atmosphere! Yes, they successfully completed their mission! They participated in the “Riesling Open”music festival, and closed the evening sharing good roots reggae vibes. I could not stop dancing nor photographing 🙂 For me, it was the perfect match! There are passionate musicians – music made in the Greater Region, like Momo and Friends composition that I had the pleasure to see before Abdou, and also discover the band Road to Zion LIVE. All of them shared with us good energies with interesting combination, sounds and rhythms.
