Special Thanks

I'd like to give a special thanks, a shout out in fact to the Internet. Thanks to you internet I am able to listen keep up with the diaspora music while at work and in my car (via my iPod). A further thanks to the good folks at you.tube for having such a service that enables me to watch the videos for those songs that would more then likely not appear on American MTV, VH1 or gasp BET.

Medhy Custos is back with a new single.


So I heard this new song on the internet radio from Martinique and it's been playing on my iPod on repeat. The song is by Admiral T and features a group called Kassav' who virtually propolled the Zouk phenomenon through out the Francophone world. I've been listening to Kassav's music since I can remember even listening to music. The message is about how together the country can be strong and prosper. Good stuff.



I just discovered this great Jamaican artist called Gyptian and I've been rocking some of his songs for the last few weeks.



Thanks again internt.

Miss H, I love your music selection. This is the kind of stuff a brotha can bump all day and night. And how can you not bump this on a 4 1/2 hour trek to NYC via Ipod Itrip? Don't turn up the bass in Ingrid. One might just blow their ear drum! -smile- Wow! Kassav'? You are da bomb luv...

Kassav, yes that makes me home sick, and that's ironic since I'm a redneck in Florida. Yes, I was dreaming of Martinique last night. I can imagine Zouk playing over the sound system at the Champion in Rivere Salee. Ah to be there now. It's not so much Zouk but it's the whole flavor of the island.

Wasn't there another one you had people listening to in your car a few months back? I'll have to get team OE to go back through surveillance notes.

Do you do www.Pandora.com? You can add one of those artists and it will find other artists for you like them!

The internet certainly does have a powerful impact on the music we have access to. No longer are we forced to only listen to what "The Man" wants us to.

I am loving that first video. I haven't heard about Kassav in ages. I was soo young when I heard their music. Thank you for posting that.
