Roots reggae singer Dubkor recently completed a successful two-show stint in the United States, entertaining lovers of reggae music in Colorado.

The first show which was held on September 25 at Lost Lakes in Denver, Colorado, was a sold-out affair. Performing songs from his debut album, Rasta Man, Dubkor wove his way into the hearts of the hundreds of music lovers who turned out for the event.

"The show in Lost Lakes was a tremendous success. I performed a very tight set, which consisted of songs such as Verandah, Little Love Story, Defend the Ends, Rasta Man Riding and Gideon. The response was overwhelming. At the end of my performance, the people were asking for more. Even after I did the encore, they still wanted more," Dubkor said.

The second show, which was held at Steam Boat Springs in Colorado the following night, was also a huge success. According to the artiste, "The vibes in Steam Boat Springs was very good. The people in Colorado really love roots reggae music a lot, and they support it."

Now in demand

Since his appearances in Colorado, Dubkor has received several requests from promoters there for him to return for shows early next year.

Dubkor is currently back in studios working on his sophomore album which is slated to be released in 2015.

"So far, we have recorded some very good tracks for the new album. We are taking our time and allowing the creative process to flow as we go along," said Dubkor.
