Kofi hails from Dominica, the “Nature Isle” of the Caribbean, and is one of the original, founding members of Roots, Stem, & Branches (RSB Band). Between 1983 and 2000, RSB released 10 albums that feature reggae, soca and zouk, the native music of Dominica. RSB toured extensively, playing in Canada, England, and throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean islands. RSB opened for numerous artists including Ziggy Marley, Bunny Wailer, Culture, Dennis Brown, and Shinehead.

Since settling in Chicago in 2003, Kofi has performed throughout the Chicago area and the Midwest. In recent years, he has devoted his music writing and performance skills to the genre he is most passionate about: roots reggae.

Kofi dazzles audiences with his joyful, energetic style, and his conscious lyrics about serious issues. His performances uplift people and encourage the celebration of life. Kofi's long-awaited solo album "New Name" has just been released on the New Roots label, and features a great new set of serious roots reggae with a little ska, dancehall, and lovers rock thrown into the mix.

Kofi is excited to have the opportunity to share some of his great new material with the Chicago Reggae Festival audience on August 23, 2008. Other artists from Dominica making a name for themselves in reggae include Nasio Fontaine, Nelly Stharre, Boom Shaka, Ras Digital, IMPULSE and Lazo to name a few.
