A Masquerader’s Rendition – Trinidad Carnival 2017

Posted on March 15, 2017

I think it is safe to say we paid more attention to the bumpers than our cameras. We're still not sure if this is a good thing or not. I guess you be the judge:  Carnival 2017 survived amidst an Island divided between those for and against the festivities. Rightfully so, as Carnival is central to our economic growth and diversification. (A song I sing daily on my facebook.) A collection of colors, creeds, races and nationalit...

Posted on January 31, 2017

"Ken this is probably the best song I have ever written" - the remark that really got my attention. In between the daily casual conversation between Nesta and I, the statement struck me. He played the song and it sounded like a distorted rhythm session with some humming over it. Noticing my lack of astonishment, Nesta explained this was version 1.0 and beneath the hums, real words will soon come. The underlying theme of this story is, to ...

Posted on October 16, 2016

Saturday Evening. Another weekend which means more parties. This particular Saturday I planned to accompany my friend and personal DJ, DJ Cha Cha to his Down the Island gig. This time, it was an event hosted by a few old school friends, Nariba and Amanda. I'd never been to one of their events, so I was eager to attend and see what it was about. Nariba was adamant that Cha Cha and I get to the cruise on time and when we arrived I understood ...
