A major part of the Jamaican reggae revival this generation has announced new United States tour dates in 2016.
Oje Ken Ollivierre, popularly known by his stage name, Protoje is among a group of young reggae artists from Jamaica, branded as the Reggae Revival. Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Dre Island, Jah9, Jah Bouks, Kelissa and the aforementioned Protoje, has ignited a torch in people’s hearts and is confidently lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and culture within reggae music.
Protoje and fellow collaborator, Chronixx, in large part, have led this revolution since their recent hit single, “Who Knows”, featured on Protoje’s 2015 release, Ancient Future.
Continuing to ride the wave of momentum from his Ancient Future album release, Protoje will once again hit the road to spread the sound of his native Jamaica to the masses.
Protoje spent the spring months touring as direct support to American reggae band Rebelution, which spawned a collaborative track titled, “Inhale Exhale” on the California-based band’s June 3rd release of Falling Into Place.
Protoje will begin his own headlining tour on July 6th in Boston, before performing in major metropolitan cities such as Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. The upcoming North American tour will also feature tour stops in Toronto and Quebec City, along with many other auxiliary markets in the United States.
