Break The World | Fay-Ann Lyons | Debuts #3 Billboard Reggae Charts

0 comments


Fay-Ann Lyons Alvarez, wife of Bunji Garlin and daughter of Austin 'Super Blue' Lyons, album entitled "Break The World" has debuted at number three (3) on the Billboard Reggae Chart on Tuesday March 14th. 2017.

We, at Sokah2Soca, congratulate Fay-Ann Lyons on her accomplishment. We encourage everyone to support her and purchase the album. We are heading to do just that after ensuring that this post is published here and on facebook.

So why the Reggae Charts? It is very simple... Soca Music does not have its own music category on the Billboard Charts. Your support will go a long way to jump start a movement to help put Soca Music as an official Music Format on Billboard!

"Fay Ann’s debut album, “Break the World” entered the Billboard Reggae chart on Tuesday, debuting at number three as soon as it was released. VP Records claims this was the first Soca album to achieve this remarkable feat straight out the gate." Read the entire article as reported by LoopTT Magazine at the following link: http://www.looptt.com/content/fay-ann-urges-support-debut-album-enters-billboard-reggae-chart

Now that you have decided that you want the album you need to know where to get it. Well we can help in that regard. "Break the World" features sixteen (16) songs and is available for download on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Update:
To my friends/acquaintances, please don's ask me for copies of the songs... I am not sharing! You can get your own/purchase copies of the album or select the songs you want to get and support the artist! I purchased my copy of the album on Amazon.com: Break The World/Amazon

It does not matter if you had a bad day yesterday or a slow start to your morning experience because this music will create a safe zone for you. Once immersed in the delight of music played on the steel pan all of your worries will dissipate. What is even better is that the music comes from the 'World of Smoothe'... Jazz Music!

So grab you cup of java or cup of tea, press play and release your inhibitions. You are now in the safe zone. Sokah2Soca aka Zagada is please to, once again (yes, we presented it before), soothe your senses with a 'Pan Lovers Delight'.

The site the music comes from is "Pan Jazz Radio". The links to their Facebook Fan Page and Twitter Feed are posted below.

It would be a very wonderful thing if there was a radio station out of Trinidad and Tobago that plays 'Pan Music' 24/7! This is sadly lacking and with so many people playing the steel pan this is a void that needs to be filled. In the interim we have sites like "Pan Jazz Radio" to continuously whet our 'pan music appetites'. Press play and enjoy!

01 Sandpoint Reggae, Ray Holman
02 Come Dance With Me, Dave Longfellow
03 Isosceles, Gary Gibson,
04 Mexican Hip Dance, Dexter Joseph,
05 Her Favorite Shade Of Yellow, Victor Provost
06 In A Sentimental Mood, Dave Vine
07 Panoramic, Liam Teague
08 Calatino, Jamma & Friends
09 In Walked Bud, Sonic Steel
10 Valentines Gifts From India, Jonathon Scales
11 No Looking Back, Leon Foster Thomas

Bacchanal Jamaica 2017 | Fiyah Hose Soca Riddim

0 comments
Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is over and now is the time to move forward with upcoming Carnival sin the Caribbean Basin. Today we are re-posting the Fiyah Hose Riddim because it is a Riddim by Jamaican artistes.
Bacchanal Jamaica takes place in April and now is the time to promote the event. Take a listen to the songs on the riddim as presented in our original post below.

Previously posted Fiyah Hose Riddim | Jamaica
Here comes the Jamaicans with a solid Soca Riddim. We love the vibe of this Riddim! Now we have to warn you about one song on the Riddim.

The last song listed here has some 'Raw Lyrical Content'!Don't listen to the song if you get offended easily especially when it comes to the way some men are explicit about a woman's body!

Now having said that, we have to acknowledge the production of the Riddim (the music). We really like the music production! You can have your say regarding the lyrical content of the songs but the music has a nice old school vibe that makes it sound like authentic Soca. Today the Soca beat is watered down, mixed with other musical vibes or it is just music that has the name Soca attached to it as a marketing tool.  That is not the case with the Fiyah Hose Riddim! Bacc

We invite you to comment on the music production and the songs, Please use the comment feature of this posting to share your thoughts about the songs here with your peers. All comments will be posted.
