Protoje embarked on a two-month European tour with his band Indiggnation in July after having impressively toured the West Coast of the United States (US).
The tour of the US saw them performing at the prestigious Sierra Nevada World Music Festival and other venues in California.
The performance at Sierra Nevada was hailed by many as one of the best of the festival as Protoje & The Indiggnation delivered an energetic and vibrant set to establish themselves on the American festival market as an exciting, entertaining, and lyrically potent group.
The West Coast tour transitioned immediately into the European Music From My Heart tour with Summerjam in Germany on July 7.
The bar was set at this first performance as they had a massive crowd on the final night of the festival jumping, waving, singing, and being totally immersed in the delivery from the penultimate act on the night.
Protoje & The Indiggnation commanded the stage every time they set foot on it. From the usual reggae events to mainstream festivals across Europe, every venue rocked with dub, rock, reggae music - and then some.
High-energy dancing, symmetry between band members, and consistent delivery of the music, coupled with thought-provoking lyrics, made for great entertainment.
Protoje delivered songs from his first album, The 7 Year Itch, and his recently released The 8 Year Affair to warm response.
Persons of all ages in Germany, Italy, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, and Belgium got a chance to take in the reggae act, and the audiences' exuberance clearly indicated that roots reggae is still alive, and if fostered and nurtured, can take its rightful place across the globe as it once did.
"I just want to play music globally. This is what I wake up every day dreaming of doing, and for it to be a reality makes me feel truly blessed. To be travelling with my band makes it extremely satisfying as all that I envisaged for my music is now being manifested. It's been a joy," said Protoje.
Protoje & The Indiggnation will have very little time to recoup after the summer tour because a six-week fall European tour begins October 3.
