Costa Rica: The 2012 installment of "Carnival Puntarenas," the third of the three "major" festivals of the season in Puntarenas, Costa Rica, proved to be another spectacular affair for the more than 40,000 music lovers who converged for the beach side concert in the capital city to see Jamaican reggae star Ky-mani Marley set the day to music. When the young Marley, son of reggae icon Bob Marley, hit the stage backed by the band Konfrontation, excitement and pandemonium broke out in anticipation of the tasty musical treat that was to follow. Marley blazed the stage for well over 120 minutes, delivering a dynamic litany of songs, from his father's repertoire as well as some from his own catalogue. The multi talented singer proved his relevance with favourites like 'Iron Lion Zion,' 'Is This Love,' 'One Love,' 'Get up Stand Up,' 'No Woman No Cry,' 'I Shot the Sheriff' and originals like 'Who We Are,' 'Rasta Love,' 'Ska-Ba-Dar' and 'Dear Dad' - a song that pulls at the heartstrings of anybody who has lost a loved one.
