Roots Reggae Queen Etana teams up with Daddy Longlegs Homegrown Revival and friends. Singer, songwriter, and humanitarian Etana is a powerhouse vocalist and Grammy Award, nominee. Its a been a decade after her debut as a reggae artist, she is now a recognized and respected entertainer in her native Jamaica and is also well known worldwide. Born Shauna McKenzie, the young talent migrated to the United States for the opportunity and briefly pursued a pop music career before rediscovering her roots as an adult and adopting the moniker Etana, “The Strong One” in Swahili. The return home spurred the evolution of her sound and is evident in her body of work expressed as the fusion of folk, soul, jazz, r&B, dancehall, and reggae. Songs created by Etana easily fits into the world music category as much as reggae and dancehall.
