Kalado delivers in Canada, leaves fans wanting more


For the second time since the start of this year, dancehall artiste Kalado treated his Canadian fans to a dazzling, unforgettable performance and still managed to leave them wanting more.

From Toronto, Ontario to Montreal, Quebec, the artiste, who is undoubtedly the fastest-rising dancehall act for 2014, has demonstrated his ever-increasing star power. Not even the rain in Montreal could dampen the mood, as the Personally singer upped the ante and delivered a great performance at the annual Montreal International Reggae Festival.

For an artiste making his debut at an overseas festival of this calibre, the critics agree that Kalado was impressive. Kalado was a last-minute addition to the event, having had his August tour of Europe cancelled, thus freeing him up for other lucrative engagements.

His fans inside the venue must have given thanks for the cancellation of the Europe tour, as they stood in the pelting rain and gleefully sang word-for-word songs such as Good Good, Personally, Body Nuh Dead, Make Me Feel, Sad Streets, Pree Money and Take A Ride.

As Kalado explained, "I was very surprised to see how many thousands of people were standing in the rain singing and cheering me on after every song. It was a great opportunity and I really had a great time."

Kalado's management disclosed that overseas requests for the artiste are coming in fast, a testament to his mounting popularity, which was given an even greater boost after his Dancehall Night performance at Jamaica's premier reggae festival, Reggae Sumfest.

He has shows in Costa Rica fromAugust 29-31, then Zimbabwe onSeptember 13, followed by Antigua onOctober 11. Other US and Caribbean dates in- between are pending.
