Hello, Carib News readers!
We, like many in New York’s Caribbean American communities are counting down the days until the West Indian Carnival on Labor Day. To celebrate it, New York Carib News is creating a Top 10 Caribbean Music List!
Every week until the Carnival, we will post up a poll of the top songs for 2012 by today’s Reggae, Soca, Calypso, Dancehall, and Compas Music artists on the right side or the homepage on Carib News’s website. Vote for your favorite song to see it on our Top 10 Caribbean Music List. If you want to listen to the songs we list on our polls, check back to our blog on this page to listen to them.
For this weeks poll, which will be up from 6/29 to 7/06/ 2012, we present you with the following Soca songs. Feel free to listen to them and then vote for your favorite here:
1) “I Am Soca” by Patrice Roberts & Kerwin Du Bois
2) “Celebrate Life” by Kevon Carter, featuring Shal Marshall
3) “Mr. Fete” by Machel Montano
4) “True Story” by Benjai
5) “Born Ready” by Bunji Garlin
