"In The Universe Tour" going well! 

Toshi kicked off the "In The Universe Tour" on August 31st and it is going well so far. Featuring string ensumble and giving "more accoustic feel", the two hour set is quite different from Toshi's classic "Funk Party" vibe and audience are enjoying to discover a different side of Kubota's musical interpretation. 

Two shows are also added for October 30th and 31st at Kokusai Forum Hall A in Tokyo.

Last year made Kubota’s 25year anniversary, and this year, he is releasing “Parallel World II KUBOSSA” the follow up to 1991’s Reggae themed album “Parallel World I KUBOJAH”. The Parallel World series showcases Kubota’s alternative music style besides R&B and Funk Music that he usually conveys his voice and messages. The Parallel World literally means the co-existence of both worlds and you could find Kubota in both.

This album includes 2x brand new songs he wrote as well as the self-cover songs (“Amaoto”, “Dance If You Want It”, a Love Story”) and remake of R&B classics including Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour” and Isley Brothers’ “Between The Sheets”, as well as Bossa Nova standards, “The Shadow Of Your Smile” and “Corcovado”.

The album drops in Japan on July 3rd 2013.
