By Published May 26, 2024

Originally posted on the blog Sokah2Soca ( We bring you only the best new music, while Island Vybe Radio rocks it live on the air!!

Summer has arrived, and today we bring some sunshine straight from Trinidad & Tobago. Trinidad & Tobago is known for its Calypso, Steelpan, Soca, Limbo, and much more. This is a special presentation of two songs by Mr. Desmond. On Sokah2Soca, we have a list of Calypso mixes done by Mr. Desmond, along with this sweet Steelband presentation. 
The songs are "Oye Cómo Va" and "If I Never See You Again"—they are exceedingly sweet! This was part of the Sunday show on WACK Radio 90.1 FM in 2023. Today, we present this post to our Islandvybe family to enhance your Sunday listening experience with some variety. Imagine cooking your Sunday meal with the sweet sounds of the steel band singing sweet melodies in your ears. It's so damn good. 
Now, press play, relax, and enjoy your national instrument. Mr. Desmond x Sokah2Soca presents barrel (Steelband) music to soothe your soul!
