Sometimes one can feel alone and isolated on an island devoid of answers to one's purpose. Sometimes, you have to reach out and ask for help. You are not alone, and all you need to do is ask for help from your fellow man. Sometimes it is as simple as asking for someone to 'pray for me'. Aaron "Voice" St. Louis fills that empty space with a song that shares a feeling that you may not know how to express. 
 
Every day, as individuals, we keep fighting personal demons that tend to place a heavy burden on us. As men, we put forth an image and personality that conceal the pain we feel inside. Self-empowerment means breaking these burdensome limits we place on ourselves and opening up, thereby giving us the freedom to experience our limits while, at the same time, providing growth that helps us defeat the negative thoughts that keep us down. This is a song for the season, as well as one for this moment in time. We hope you enjoy the song and music production as much as we do. Just "pray for me," your fellow man. 
 
Always remember, you are not alone. Stay positive, reach out to someone you trust, bare your soul, and become self-evident and ready to rule your space and time on Earth.

I love my culture, and our people are amazing! This music is damn delightful, and the Mixmaster's mastery elevates its already delightful quality. Few people possess the special talent of compiling and presenting a playlist. Close connections always slay the musical dragon. We love it and won't say much other than to press play and enjoy our talented Caribbean artists and culture.

There is joy in music and a feeling of joy in one's soul when one can share that joy in song. This is new music from Patrice Roberts, and it just feels good to be alive and hear this lady sing. This song showcases the combined talents of Patrice Roberts and Busy Signal, a dancehall sensation from Jamaica. Patrice Roberts, hailing from Trinidad and Tobago, and Busy Signal, a dancehall sensation from Jamaica, collaborated on this song. 
 
Two singing styles combine to produce an uplifting song with Trinidad and Tobago rhythms and Jamaican dancehall. Patrice shines, while Busy Signal adds the hues that make the image and musical medium resonate with anyone who can listen and appreciate excellence. We appreciate the fact that this song enforces resilience of spirit and is a celebration of and for life. We love it!
 
From the artist:
Patrice Roberts: "I really hope that this song touches and resonates with you! Huge thank you to Busy Signal for agreeing to do this song with me. Love to Patexx for this amazing song and everyone else that played a part in the project."

"Man With No Door," the long-awaited and much-anticipated album, has finally arrived, leaving those who previewed it in awe of the production. "Man with No Door" is an open concept album featuring a mixture of musical styles. The band not only created an album with Soca beats but also infused it with a diverse range of musical vibes. The album incorporates elements of Soca, Kompa, Afrobeat, Dancehall, and Calypso double entendre. While Soca is the life of the party, there are different aspects to parties (or, as we say, fetes during carnival time) that Caribbean people feel and desire as the night unfolds. The DJ will feel the vibe of the crowd and deliver the appropriate music. Kes has delivered sixteen songs, all of which can find a place in such a party scene. 
 
When interviewed by Billboard magazine about the album, Kes stated, “I am the man with no door. I want to create this world based on that experience.” And with that, he delivered music that brings the Caribbean region together with artists from Jamaica, Haiti, and US influences. 
 
We love the album, and we are confident that you will love all the songs. We will take a moment to briefly talk about three songs: "Jolene," "Tack Back," and "Banga." We especially love the double-entendre that "Jolene" delivers with "how yuh mango sweet so." That is literally true, but then again, the double entendre here is obvious.
 
Next is "Tack Back," a song that Kes did with producer "Tano." If you grew up in the Caribbean, the term 'tack back' would have been part of your daily vocabulary. Kes was diplomatic in his explanation of "spin the block," stating that it was something that happened during the carnival. But no, "tack back" in the "hood" meant, for us, to make a move after failing the first time with regard to a relationship. Yes, your pride tells you that she is yours and that you can make it work, so you decide to "tack back."
 
Finally, "Banga." If you watch the music video, the mischievous look on Kes' face says it all. This is a mischievous song, but one that many love. In that billboard magazine article, Kes said it all: "Banga" was actually out of a writing camp. Every so often, I’ll settle in a place and bring food and vibes and people, and we write. We had Jamaica’s Carnival, and I stayed on for a few extra days to do this writing camp in Jamaica. JA is just such a beautiful island, and because it's away from home, there's a sense of urgency to get something done. Again, it was out of fun. "Banga" is not a real world; we merely created it to allow you to interpret its meaning as you see fit. It sings how it feels. For us, it was just that blend. It sounds like it could swing in an Afrobeat way; it sounds like it could swing in a reggaetón way. "Banga" incorporates elements of various genres, yet it remains uniquely Trinidadian. You have to interpret it the way that you would like to interpret it. It's open to interpretation. I love that creation. 
 
The rest of the album is excellent. Songs like "Liki Tiki" and "Jub Jub" are teasers but then there is "Talk To Me" that calms the storm.  All of the songs are ones you can listen to over and over again. This blog has always favored "KES the Band." We love their style, and they have always delivered the music we all love. We still think "Savannah Grass" should have been Road March, but in the end, "Savannah Grass" will live on like Kes the Band, and the rest will just be a note in history. Please go out and buy the songs. Support KES the Band, an awesome band from Trinidad and Tobago.
