From receiving the keys to the city of Brooklyn for contribution to art and culture to new business ventures, and a second Grammy Award nomination for Best Reggae Album (‘Avrakedabra’), 2017 was another historical year for Morgan Heritage.
The band, who is known worldwide for their riveting live performances, spent the latter part of 2017 delivering the Avrakedabra magic to the world, from intimate settings to sold-out arenas.
The band played to more than 20,000 people who were yearning for some roots rock reggae in Brazil.
The siblings also conveyed holiday wishes at the New York Stock Exchange’s 94th annual tree-lighting ceremony, making them the only reggae act to perform on Wall Street so far.
To satisfy fans worldwide, three members, Mojo, Gramps and Peetah Morgan, travelled for a powerful New Year’s Eve celebration in picturesque Cape Verde, and thereafter deliver cheers to celebrate Ethiopian Christmas in Addis Ababa, the country’s capital.
The group will kick off its Avrakedabra European tour on February 1 in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
The tour will see the band perform in several cities throughout Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.
“It’s been a few years since we’ve toured Europe this extensively, and we’d like to think of this tour as a prequel to a long year of tours around the world in 2018,” said Mojo. “Jah has blessed us with another successful year and album with the release of Avrakedabra, and we’re just grateful to our ‘loyal royal’ fan base that continues to support us throughout the years.”
