Eye Unit: Caribbean-style tributes to Barack Obama

>> Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Congratulations to Barack Obama! Congratulations to the United States of America!

The focus of this blog is West Indian music, especially soca and calypso. I'm here way too excited to sleep after watching the U.S. election results. I want to discuss how amazing this is for America, and for all people who need an extra dose of faith...but I realize that if you're here, you're here to read about music. So, this week's Eye Unit will consist of Audio/Visual tributes to U.S. President Elect, Barack Obama.

Check out a brief selection of songs that were penned across the Caribbean region and diaspora in support! Yes we can. Yes, we did.

Barack Obama - Vibrating Scakes (St. Vincent and the Grenadines)





Obama You Make Us Proud - Red Ride (Montserrat)




Barack We Love You - King Short Shirt (Antigua)
