    Mista Savona with support Dublo **********************Mist​a Savona********************​* Jake Savona, aka Mista Savona is arguably Australia's leading exponent of roots reggae and dancehall music, with international releases under his belt and the 2010 release of his stunning fourth studio album "Warn The Nation", which sees him working alongside internationally renowned artists such as Capleton, Sizzla, Horace Andy (Massive Attack)..., Anthony B, Alton Ellis, Burro Banton and many more. With J Mag calling it “Australia’s definitive reggae album” and the Sydney Morning Herald defining it as “fantastic… authentic...the most incredible reggae album”, the results are undoubtedly some of the most exciting and original sounds currently coming out of Australia. To complement the release of "Warn The Nation", Mista Savona has released a series of explosive 7” singles known as the “Fire Dragon Riddim” - the first ever Australian produced releases of their kind to be manufactured and distributed globally from Jamaica. Hailed as ‘hypnotic’ and ‘irresistibly charming’ by French critic Jean-Marc Lemonnier (Natty Dread), these singles constitute Australia’s official entry into the global reggae market. Savona’s third studio album release, the pioneering "Melbourne Meets Kingston" (2007), is a magnificent 21 track tour de force - the first ever album length collaboration between Jamaican and Australian musicians. Featuring reggae luminaries such as Anthony B, Big Youth, Determine, Lisa Dainjah and a host of upcoming artists, “Melbourne Meets Kingston" has been described as “a landmark for Australian music – this is the first time an Australian producer has worked extensively with big-name Jamaican artists over a full-length album. More importantly, it is the strongest reggae & dancehall album produced in this country to date.” Jesse I (Chant Down Sound). To perform this music live, Jake has brought together an incredible 10 piece band, including a horn section, African dancers and Melbourne vocalist Vida Sunshyne (whose credits include work with Nitin Sawhney and Lionel Richie) - and his show is by far the toughest and most exciting presentation of authentic, raw roots reggae and dancehall music in this country. **************Set Times***************** 10 - 11:30 Dublo 11:30 - 1 Mista Savona 1 - 2 Dameza
