Jah cure GuyanaOver 12,000 patrons crammed into the Playa Serena, Gorgona Beach venue in Panama to see international reggae superstar Jah Cure perform a steady stream of reggae hits last Easter weekend.

The low-hanging thunderclouds and intermittent rain did not stop reggae fans from flocking to the beach to see the reggae legend and he did not disappoint. When it was time to hit the stage, a surge of excitement ran through the crowd like an electric current.

Loud screams hit the air as his band struck up the first chords of Respect, after which he performed Jah Jah Bless Me as his followers chanted the words. The most popular songs during his set were the hits, Never Find, Longing For, Only You, Reflection, Respect, Unconditional Love, Nothing and Love is. The fans sang the words of each song and chanted 'Jah Cure Jah Cure' all around the venue in between the songs.

Other acts on the show included Camacho's band "The Cell" and into the night, and a roots band of Seventh Root and Roots and Culture.

It was the artiste's first time performing in Panama. The artiste has performed in sold-out venues during his last eight performances, playing to packed venues during onstage stints in St. Lucia, French Guiana, Trinidad, Antigua, Turks and Caicos, Guyana, and St. Vincent. Panama is simply his latest conquest.

"Before we left the hotel, the promoter kept getting calls that the police were at the venue threatening to lock the show down. This is because it is said that there were too many people at the venue. Upon reaching the venue, the crowd was crazy, they couldn't be managed by the security team, the police and the military as they seemed to crave Jah Cure, some fans gathered around the vehicle and rocked it," Stephaion Douglas, a member of Jah Cure's managerment team, said.

"After the show, the security team had to whisk him away along with his band from the venue...it was crazy, they really love reggae and Jah Cure in Panama," she said.

Last month, thousands of Jah Cure fans in St. Vincent left Victoria Park disappointed and angry when he failed to appear onstage at a concert there because the promoter allegedly failed to meet his contractual obligations. At that time, there were reports that bottles were thrown and shots fired by security personnel to quell the angry crowd. The singer has since apologized to fans for the incident and promised to return to St. Vincent for a "responsible promoter".
