Sound

29 May 2007

TEMPO Television was taping a concert on the island back in March...
Local and regional soca music artists were featured along with a few cultural dance groups.

The local artists performed far better than the regional artists - one of whom was a last minute no-show that sent the promoters scrambling for a replacement.

TEMPO, a subsidiary of MTV Networks, is a "music driven lifestyle channel for Caribbean people and for lovers of Caribbean culture".

Never heard of soca music? Listen to this:
All I Want, by Fireball (Barbados)
Ova U Head, by Soca Banton (Grenada)

These songs are what you'll hear over the airwaves. It can take some getting used to, but it sure beats Clear Channel radio stations. Thanks to Jef at Toronto-Lime.com for the music links.

At the old Drive-In Cinema.
Grand Anse, Grenada.
