Kamla | Gypsy | Trinidad & Tobago 2016

0 comments
Winston "Gypsy" Peters, ex-UNC die-hard member, ex-government minister and now a bona-fide jilted lover of the PP Government is on a political tear! The jilted representative of Mayaro is hurt, angry and continues to vent his feelings for the World to hear. He 'let it off his chest' on Talk City Radio yesterday but he took time out to record a song to let the World know that he believes the current Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago is "Nemakaram" (ungrateful). This song can be heard on WACK  radio (they simply love the song for obvious reasons) or accessed on the Internet via the Google YouTube player.

Gypsy is upset, who wouldn't be? He was was rejected by the party and was unceremoniously dumped. What should have happened did not take place and he is now lashing out with mapepire snake venom. He may or may not impact the outcome of the Mayaro election results... that will soon come to pass. I do believe, that the Prime Minister should have met with her then very faithful 'partner in crime' (recall the Basdeo Panday removal debacle) and let him know that the party was moving in a different direction (away from Mr. Peters). However, I guess the Prime Minister did not want to deal with the expected tantrum of her 'once upon a time' faithful servant!

There is a lesson to be learnt here.... there are no friends in politics! Gypsy should just move on; in other words, cut your loses and move on. Now he knows how Basdeo Panday felt when they removed him as leader of the UNC! This lashing out will not help his cause. It may help boost his ego but in the eyes of the public he is simply behaving like a spoil child who did not have it 'his way'. Basdeo Panday had to deal with it and many members of the PNM had to deal with similar situations. The bitterness Gypsy is experiencing now will go away as soon as the election results come in or it may fester like a sore. Until he can wrest his soul from this tabanca we will enjoy the talents of this very well known ex-parliamentarian who is a very experienced entertainer, Mr. Winston "Gypsy" Peters. Out of this bacchanal comes new music (see something good came from all of this kankalang). We have a new song for Carnival 2016 and it is a stinging Chutney rendition from Mr. Peters.

Here is is song that he hopes will help dismantle the PP Coalition and literally put the Raging Bull in office as the next Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. The song is entitled 'Kamla'; it was produced by Winston 'Gypsy' Peters and recorded at Hott music studios.

WAR | Ricardo Drue | Antigua 2015/Trinidad & Tobago 2016

0 comments
If it is war you want then get ready for Ricardo Drue and his Power Soca track that he sang to win the Antigua Jumpy Soca Monarch in 2015. The WAR now spills over to Trinidad and Tobago's carnival 2016. This song has the Power and the vibe to wreck parties for this upcoming festival.

After listening to this track I get the feeling that this track will take to the front early in the season. This song will become an anthem for Carnival costume bands for sure. So sound the alarm because Drue has called it early... it is carnival costumed band wars for sweet TnT's carnival 2016!

YouTube Music Release Notes: 
Ricardo Drue Presents his 6th release for the summer carnival Season. WAR [Battle of the Bands}. The troopers are ready, the defenses are up, the ROAD is we battlefield. 20 thousand revelers strong clad in their carnival attire, ready to fete, jam, and play mas, ready to jump up in the carnival war zone.

War has been declared, Rum is the ammunition and its no retreat no surrender. Get ready for the Battle of the Bands, who will claim victory on the Road.

Professional | Ricardo Drue | Antigua 2015/Trinidad 2016

0 comments
The Vagabond, Ricardo Drue, fresh off his 2015 Jumpy (Power Soca) victory for this year's Antigua Carnival celebration has a new groovy track for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2015. The song is entitled "Professional" and should find favor with his followers in Trinidad. Professional is a Groovy Soca track. As a matter of fact it should be noted that Drue placed second in the Groovy Soca Category this year in Antigua.

This song reminds me a bit too much of "Vagabond"! However, it does not come close enough to the quality of Vagabond to become an eventual hit song.  Having said that we will have to wait and see if Drue can go home to Trinidad and make that song work. After all is said and done he is indeed a favorite of the Trinidad party scene!

Take a listen to "Professional" and let us know if this is one that will help you get started with the feting in Trinidad and Tobago. Drue's winning Soca Monarch song, W.A.R. will be featured in another post. Drue won the Soca Monarch title (called Jumpy in Antigua) on Sunday August 1, 2015. Enjoy the music.

Professional Update dd: 08/27/2015
Here is an update for Ricardo Drue's Carnival 2016 Groovy Soca track entitled "Professional". This is the DJ Crown Prince Edition. This revision has a better feel to it... this version should put this song on the charts for the upcoming festival in 2016! Well done...

KES the Band | New Music/Balloons | T'dad & Tobago 2016

0 comments

Today is the day that KES the Band debut their first song for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2016. The site (of the music debut) is the Mercury Lounge. It is located at 217 E. Houston St, New York, NY 10002. The telephone contact number is (212) 260-4700. The fans are ready and I am sure Kees can't wait to thrill his fans.

This should be an exciting evening for followers of Kees and the band named after him... 'Kes the Band'. However, don't go running down to the Lounge this evening (start time is 9:30 pm) because the show is sold out! We will post a clip of the events as it becomes available; we have someone going to the show this evening!

Notes from the Mecury Lounge website:
It’s hard to imagine a band playing music to blades of grass would someday take the Caribbean by storm. But that’s exactly how Kes got their start. Formed in 2005 by brothers Kees, Hans and Jon Dieffenthaller, along with friend Riad Boochoon, their upbringing in Trinidad and Tobago, a melting pot of peoples, flavors and sounds, has helped them develop their own fusion of sound. One that mixes calypso melodies, rock riffs, island beats, and offbeat rhythms of reggae and taken them from a Caribbean phenomenon to a global musical talent.

Band Information/Members: 
Kees Dieffenthaller- Vocals 
Hans Dieffenthaller- Drums
Jon Dieffenthaller- Guitar 
Riad Boochoon- Bass
Ricardo Rameshwar- Keyboards 
Mario Callender- Keyboards 
Robbie Persaud- DJ & Samples 
Aaron Vereen- Percussion

Genre: Island Pop, Soca
Hometown: Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago

Update 08/21/2015:
It appears that a few new tracks were sampled last night... hope to have something up soon. The show was a resounding success and people who attended seem to love the new music. A music update is coming soon.

Those who were expecting Carnival music releases did not get their wish. The new songs were Pop/Soca/Reggae/R&B related and are part of an upcoming album release. It should be noted that no one was disappointed with the new tracks and the video clips seen clearly show that everyone really loved the show on a hot New York night. You just can't loose when it comes to KES the Band. Listen to one of the new songs listed below, it  entitled "Balloons".

Closer | Syo | Trinidad & Tobago 2016

0 comments
"Come Close Gyal" opens the door to this song and I have to admit that the lyrics "the closer I get to you" reminds me of that Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway song but this vibe has nothing to do with that song from so long ago. One has nothing to do with the other but the sentiments are the same. This song is entitled "Closer" and it is another excellent song from the recently released Island Crush Riddim for Trinidad and Tobago's carnival 2016.

Syo is and the rest of the singing cast on this riddim have all hit the sweet spot. Pick any song and you will have something to vibe and groove to in and of the upcoming fetes. This song by Syo gets our stamp of approval. Well done!

Setta Gyal | Christian Kalpee | Trinidad & Tobago 2016

0 comments
Promises, promises and more promises and you will be in the same position as the singer of this song, The song is entitled "Setta Gyal" as in "one set ah gyal" and the name of the one who will sin and is also the singer on the track is Christian Kalpee.

This is another excellent song coming out of the Island Crush Riddim for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2016. I heard this story before and you have probably in Christian's shoes before making the same promises. We all know that Trinidad has 'one setta gyals' and beautiful ladies (indeed they are). We will be watching to see if Christian will remain the same.

Zagadd approves of the vibe on this track. Well done and kudos go out to the singer, song writers and the music production team. Well done!
