KINGSTON, JAMAICA | MARCH 4, 2013 | After spending several grueling months touring across the world, internationally acclaimed Jamaican entertainer Demarco is now back on local soil and ready for 2013.
The campaign which kicked off last year saw the ‘Love My Life’ singer making his inaugural visit to the African states of Ghana and Uganda as part of a four continent tour. While in the motherland he visited numerous radio and television stations; participated in a tree planting exercise and collaborated with multi-award winning international Ghanaian singer Samini on a track due for release later this year. The trip culminated with two shows in Dome, Ghana and Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala, Uganda with both concerts pulling a combined audience in excess of 50,000 patrons.
From there he departed for an eight city U.S. tour with his first five shows in California, followed by Texas and Florida. Caribbean fans were also treated to scintillating sets at the annual St. Lucia Mayfest and the St. Kitts Music Festival.
After wrapping up three quick shows in Haiti, the multifarious Demarco also found time to collaborate with Haitian rap star Team Lobey on a track titled ‘Map Brase’. Then it was then off to the South American continent as headliner for a one night concert. Despite the language barrier the hour-long performance was well received by his Spanish fans in Bogota, Colombia.
Meanwhile, amidst threats of exhaustion and warning from his medical team to slow down, Demarco toiled onwards making a quick cameo in Jamaica before jetting off to Europe. With sub-zero temperatures sweeping that continent, the Reggae virtuoso once again showed he was a true musical ambassador as fans poured out in their numbers to get a glimpse of the Jamaican superstar. During the European leg of the tour Demarco visited Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Holland, Belgium and France, disseminating his own brand of music along the way.
According to Demarco, “the tour was really exhausting and tough but as an ambassador for our music I have to put in the work and keep the Jamaican flag flying high across the world. It is always a blessing when you get that opportunity to travel the world and see how fans react to your music. They are the ones who continue to inspire me and I love them for that.”
With tracks such as ‘Give Thanks For Life’, ‘More Money’ and ‘Continue Wine’ in heavy rotation on the airwaves, Demarco his expected to shoot a video for the latter is the coming days.
