On The Road

5:00am I woke with a groan, knowing damn well we should have went to bed long before 12am but I wanted to be the first to wish Autumne a happy birthday. I also knew my best friend very well and hit snooze, there was no way she’d be

Hi Everyone!

I’m taking a break from posting new music just for this week, because it is carnival week. Regularly it would have been the usual but seeing as I took it upon myself to jump in the Carnival Road March for the first time…Yes, in costume, feathers, makeup and all, I’m sharing a Soca song today. This was a hard pick because I like a lot of the 2017 Soca songs, take a listen to “Know The Face” by Marvay.

I appreciated that long holiday weekend but it flew by really quickly. Every week there’s something new, this week is ‘Carnival Week’ I.E. the week before the carnival road march; so there are a lot of fetes going on. Take a look at my list

A lot of persons wait patiently for this week in April, this week has Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and is followed by Easter Sunday & Monday. So for those who work a 9-5 like myself, we count days on the calendar to public holidays, and they

Today is Ash Wednesday, which has a lot of significance for different persons; as for myself, I am grateful for the public holiday. Yesterday was Carnival Tuesday in Trinidad, and as such today signifies the end of their carnival season, and the beginning of our own, here in Jamaica. We celebrate carnival here, because it’s fun. The origin is that, a group of persons went Trinidad and Tobago and experienced their carnival season and fell in love with the festivities, so they brought it back home. Our carnival season does not fall in line with the true religious reasoning, and begins on Ash Wednesday. This was the decided date so as to not be in competition with Trinidad.

I’m a lover of music, so I’m glad we were introduced to Calypso and Soca. The riddim calls for a response from the body, it’s quite enthralling. In preparing for Bacchanal in Jamaica, I found this groovy soca song, today I’m sharing with you “Calypso” by GBM Nutron. I have had it on repeat from last weekend, the instrumental in this song has me hooked, I urge you to listen keenly, maybe you will be able to list all the instruments that created this beautiful melody.

The Road to Carnival -I

In came the New Year, in the blink of an eye or the pop of a bottle, 2016 was gone. Cheers to life, we had airily planned out 2017, this year would be one of adventures and new experiences. A big one being Jamaica’s Carnival Road March.

Hi Everyone! Today I’m sharing a Soca song, I can’t say I have a favourite Soca artiste but I listened to the 2017 Soca Starter Mix by DJ Private Ryan, and this song stood out to me. This year I’ve taken it upon myself to
