Singer Tarrus Riley and his Blak Soil band were in their musical element at the recent staging of the Dominica Creole Festival in Dominica.

With a set spanning just over an hour, Riley and his band dished out a performance that is still the talk of Dominica.

In a release to the media, Riley pointed out that fans were in for a treat the minute he and his team landed in Dominica.

"Upon our arrival in Dominica we had a meet-and-greet session with the fans. We even went into the market to buy water coconuts and the love and support we received from the fans was overwhelming", said Riley.

Performing on the second night of the three-day festival, Riley and crew did extensive damage with songs including Never Leave I, Protect the People Jah, Good Girl Gone Bad, Karma, Dream Woman and the massive hit She's Royal.

the vibe was nice

'The vibe in Dominica was very nice. The fans got into the performance and it made us feel right at home', said Riley.

Prior to their performance in Dominica, Riley and his band did four performances in the UK.

The sold-out shows took place in Manchester, Birmingham, London (Wembley Arena), and Bristol. The shows also featured Beres Hammond and Romain Virgo.

Commenting on the shows in the UK, Riley said, "The support that we received from the fans in the UK shows us that reggae music is alive and well. The consistent support and feedback from the fans, gives me the drive to continue doing the music."

Riley and Blak Soil are scheduled to perform this weekend in South Florida.
