No F's To Give | V'ghn | Grenada 2020

0 comments
This is new music coming out of Grenada from one of our favorite artistes, Jevaughn John aka "V'ghn. The song is entitled "No F's (F*cks" To Give". If you are thankful for what you have achieved in life then one should indeed be thankful for the blessings one has received. Then again, one must be aware that with fame and fortune comes friends and wanna be friends who want to become a part of the spotlight. It may come to pass that they want to shine in the light of your fame and fortune. Depending on the artists' personality that may or may not be given acceptance for such behavior. It can get worse and then they be more interested in your income and what you can do for them financially... that can cause grief! Listen to V'ghn the story teller... see if he is on point.

As you listen to the song, the relaxed vocal style coupled with the vibe of the music makes for a relaxed Sunday evening drink... just chillin' to the vibe of the music production. V'ghn has vaulted into prominence with his classic Soca track "Trouble In The Morning" and continues to shine in the Caribbean basin Soca music market. We like the relaxed style of the song, the vocal performance and the music production. Spice Mas has been cancelled for 2020  because of the Covid-19 pandemic and for those releasing music the style at this juncture is very important. V'ghn has hit the sweet spot. Carnival themed songs, jump and wave songs don't fit this period with carnival in the horizon. Well done V'ghn. the only thing we can 'find fault' if you want to go down that road is the sentiment used in the song "No f*ck To Give". It could have been said differently but if you want get the message across to the people in the street then all is well in the Spice Isle.

Note:
There is another song with the same name, "No Fucks To Give" sung by Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. The song is on YouTube and can be seen/heard here (be warned explicit lyrical content): https://youtu.be/TXK03FHVsHk

Carnival 2021 In On in Trinidad & Tobago (For Now)

0 comments
"Barring any major change to the local COVID-19 trend, masqueraders will be chipping in the streets for Carnival 2021, Culture Minister Nyan Gadsby-Dolly confirmed yesterday".
TimesCaribbeanOnline

Carnival revelers may have a reason to celebrate regarding the hosting of Carnival 2021 in Trinidad and Tobago but this should come with a caveat! The truth be told is that we don't have a clue how this virus will affect the World/Caribbean basin in the months ahead. Can this be considered a sigh of relief or should we be concerned that this could be an incubator for mas infections? Just think about it for a moment, carnival and social distancing just does not work people! What an interesting scenario; only time will tell... let's pray that it turns out to be a good story to tell.

Celebrate for now but rest assured this is a fluid situation and watch for severe restrictions that could limit or ban international travel to Trinidad and Tobago during this period. There is a large contingent of visitors to Trinidad and Tobago out of the United States during this period. Things are not looking good regarding containment of the virus in the US. This could limit the financial success of most of the carnival masquerade bands and the volume of people attending most major fetes. Rest assured, we are not here to rain on anyone's parade but the slogan should be safety first, fete later!

Wild Meat | Lexo TV Trinidad

0 comments

This comedy cartoon out of Trinidad is insanely good! As a matter of fact posting an episode to Sokah2Soca is long overdue. Now is the time for Narine and Santana to debut on Sokah2Soca. This episode, entitled "Wild Meat" should put a smile on your face. On this episode we  see two of our favorite characters Santana and Narine feeling to eat some wild meat. Just like that Narine saw an iguana and the story begins; their instincts had the pair in the hunt for some wild meat but the hunt back fired on the pair! Play the video and follow the story.

Please be advised that this video presentation is for adults only. Please don't have your kids close by when viewing the video because it has adult situational themes and talk not suitable for children.

To the adults watching this video presentation, please don't be a prude; if you get offended listening to raw street talk then you are advised not to watch the video. If you have an open mind and can respect good humor then be prepared to laugh... this is funny especially for all Caribbean people who love to eat some wild meat!

From the creator:
"Some of us eat anything, which sometimes can get us sick or in trouble".

What We Go Do | Runi Jay | Grenada 2020

0 comments
Oh my, Carnival is cancelled for 2020! What We Go Do? Covid-19 has done a number on all Carnival in the Caribbean region and North America for the year 2020. Trinidad and Tobago and Carriacou managed to get away with their festival before the Pandemic shut down the World. We shed a tear but life goes on and we all have to cope to make it through the heartache.
The Island of Grenada, with their signature 'Spice Mas Brand', fell victim to virus like everyone else but felt the pain with the cancellation of Spice Mas 2020. However, no carnival does not mean that there can't be musical vibes to celebrate the culture of the nation; and, for that reason we are here today to post new music from Grenada.

This song, entitled "What We Go Do" was released this week by the artiste known as Runi Jay. This song got to the heart of the problem for those who live for the festival. The question was asked regarding the official 'non starter carnival days for 2020'. How will carnival lovers in Grenada deal with the fact that when Carnival Monday and Tuesday arrive and quarantine requires the carnival massive to stay inside? The angst can be felt across the carnival divide. This is a historic year for the Spice Isle when they have to stay inside for carnival 2020.

We love the idea behind the song, we are excited about the musical niceness coming from the 'Delight Riddim' produced by Kay Frass. Runi Jay along with background singers Kirton 'Alma Boy' Roberts and Shaquera Taylor delivered vocals that are pleasant to anyone listening to the song. Kudos to the song writing team, the production team and everyone who had input with the delivery of this very likable track. Well done guys!

If I Was To Married | Trinidad Madman | Trinidad 2020

0 comments

This is the song for the summer of 2020. Regardless of the problems we are experiencing with the Covid-19 Pandemic, we can still find time to laugh. This one made Kewin Du Bois literally 'crack-up' and laugh out loudly on camera. This is new music (this one is for kicks) out of Trinidad and Tobago. The sobriquet of the artiste is "Trinidad Madman" and his song is entitled "If I Was To Married" (If I was to marry).

We think this one will put a smile on your face, make you laugh out loudly or simply sigh in disbelief... Trini again! Now we do realize that this song points to the rude side of things so don't play this for the children to hear because you don't have the right to 'cut dey arse' when you hear them singing it. Regardless, we present the current chat topper out of Trinidad and Tobago, " If I was to married" produced by G6 Productions... get ready for it. This thing is infectious!

First Chance | Marvay | Barbados 2020

0 comments

It is time to pause, time to sit back and listen to the golden voice of one of the best singers from the Caribbean Basin; today we present new music from Marvay, his song is entitled "First Chance". Marvay never disappoints and this one is right up there with the best Soca has to offer. As you can tell, we are infatuated with this man's talent.

Marvay's talent is complimented by the creativity of some very excellent music produced by De Red Boyz. They are (De Red Boyz) a pair of the best music producers hailing from Barbados. We have to extend much love to the song writing team, well done. The combination just works, excellent music, song writing talent and the singing talent of Marvay just works. We think that the message that "First Chance" delivers will be well received by Carnival lovers across the globe. The song is a call to arms for Carnival street revelers. Then again a nice slow wine beckons from this Groove Soca offering. We love the song and think that you will feel the same after listening. Crop Over may have been cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19 but the music coming out of Barbados sounds sweeter as we lament the loss of Crop Over 2020.

Generations Old School vs New School | 5Star Akil vs Poser

0 comments

Generations on WACK Radio 90.1 FM. We are doing this post while the show is in progress; you can donate to the show at https://fundmetnt.com/campaign/generations-poser-vs-5-star-akil

Poser vs 5Star Akil today on WACK Radio 90.1 FM was a good example of how much the music has changed/evolved moving from Calypso to Soca.

The two singers, a young Soca artiste and the other, a Calypso Ballard star sang tune for tune. The show was moderated by the CEO of WACK Radio Mr. Kenny Phillips. The musical styles on display were generations apart but both artistes showed respect for the craft.

Clearly the style and ease of performance was on the side of Poser. He never looked intimated by the young Soca star and delivered some excellent songs with his easy singing style. Poser exposed two things as I watched the performances. Today's calypsonians are the cause for the demise of the calypso artform. There was substance to the lyrical content in the songs Poser delivered. Every song was delivered with a style that was easy to listen with musical accompaniment that just felt right. Poser told stories and delivered each song making the listener pay attention. Calypso from 'back in the day' is so much better than what is delivered today. Maybe today's Calypsonians should reflect and try Poser's formula... was and still is excellent.

5Star Akil hid behind his sunglasses but became confident as the show progressed. He slowed down the pace and was able to catch his breath and deliver his offerings with confidence that had the CEO of WACK showering praising to the young star. Clearly 5Star Akil, delivering current songs, became the favorite for the evening. However, there  is no denial of the talent and fame of Poser. He has some excellent music and his Calypso style is sorely missed. Some of Poser's faster paced songs are sweeter than a lot of today's music in both Soca and Calypso worlds.

Battle of the artistes hosted by Kenny Phillips with Dj Aaron worked today. The show will be on YouTube for your continued listening pleasure. Please go to FundmeTnT to donate for the shows continued success. A note to KP... you need to get the artistes like Poser and others in shape to keep up with young people like 5Star Akil!
