Dancehall veteran Bounty Killer, Hip-Hop princess Ciara, Reggae group Aswad and the Island Explosion Band are also set to ignite Warner Park Stadium on the Festival’s closing night.
Young Steppin’ Razor Christopher Martin warmed by the reception he has received from Kittitians, attributes this to the mass appeal of his music coupled with his high energy performances. “I just get lost in music. Fans connect with that, it does not matter what age group is in the audience, everyone can understand and get a vibe from what I am saying. Parents don’t have to stop their 12 year olds from listening or say no don’t listen to this part because everybody can connect with what I am saying. That’s the connection that they feel and they feel that through my music and through my energy,” he explained.
Martin, whose album comes out in October, is pulling out all the stops for his second outing on the St. Kitts Music Festival. “Fans can expect pure niceness! Sugar Reggae. I performed without my band the last time I was there, but this year I will be there with my band, the Jam Dons. My energy with my band is a total difference. I also have new music, and the EP is out, so I will touch a few songs from the EP”, said Martin.

To see so many different cultures come together Soca night, Reggae night and International R&B and Hip Hop. Whenever so many different genres of music come together for this kind of Festival it goes to show the dynamics of the region. It shows what various countries within the Caribbean have to offer as a united force. For me to be part of this force it speaks volumes for myself, my friends, my family,” Martin noted.
