Three months after embarking on a tour of Europe, Japan and the United Kingdom, Reggae ambassador Bugle is happy to finally be back on home soil. The singer has been on the road since the end of May promoting his sophomore album ‘Be Yourself’ across the expanse of the continents.
Bugle concedes that the tour, which ended on a high note, was not without its challenges but was an overall success as the intended mission was accomplished.
“Being in a foreign land for any extended period of time will always present some level of challenges, especially from a cultural or dietary perspective. But thankfully years of being on the road have allowed us to adapt to these situations so we can remain steadfast on the mission of getting the music to the people and keep the Jamaica and Reggae banner flying high”.
Yielding positive results at almost every concert stop, Bugle said he was very thankful especially to the fans who braved the sometimes unpredictable weather conditions to show their support.
“People who have travelled to those regions of the world know that the weather is not like Jamaica it can be very unpredictable at times and to see a full house at almost every venue, I could not have asked for more from the fans.” he added.
Some of the major stops on the sojourn included Fukuoka, Sapporo, Okayama, Osaka, Tokushima in Japan. Hamburg, Hannover, Berlin, Paris, Prague, Bern, Zurich, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Vienna, Pfullendorf, Valencia and Helsinki in Europe and London, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol in the United Kingdom.
Locally, Bugle has shifted his attention to amplifying the presence around his latest effort ‘Cherish Life’ a musical narrative spawning from a personal tragedy that saw the singer losing his brother, as well as close friend Kunte and more recently the near fatal encounter of famed sound system selector Nickomatic. The single is also accompanied by a video, which can be viewed, via the ‘Rasta Party’ hit-maker official Vevo account.
