On De Scene: Band Songs becoming part of St.Lucia Carnival Culture?

>> Sunday, June 7, 2009

Last year it was interesting to see at least 4 Carnival Bands released soca songs about their bands. And many may consider that too few to even mention, but I can assure you band songs created this impact other songs could not drive out of the reveler.

Revelers on de Road for 2008 (compliments torontolime.com)

The band songs instill a sort of pride and just make the reveler “get on bad” by de beat. It is almost like you are summoned to misbehave. I can attest to that!
Ah mean what is better than you on de road and you hear a song that is all about your band instructing you to get on and adding to your notion that de band you jumping in is de best? Well nothing can be sweeter than that!

So I thought it would be sweet if I shared with you the 5 band songs which have started this craze. 2k9 might see the remixing of last year's tracks and the addition of new bands songs. I will keep you guys posted on all band songs for Carnival 2009.

Here is the playlist of the Band Songs, Enjoy!
