Taking a pause from a long day of writing to send birthday greetings to the one and only Shawn "Ma$tamind" Noel. In 26 years, he's definitely begun to make the world take notice. Whether its because he's produced seven full albums in the last four years, or because he's successfully transitioning into the realm of artiste...who's to say?
Shawn is a talented guy who is approaching the "soca biz" with a healthy dose of class and professionalism...and we wish him the best.
Here's a clip of Da Mastamind and Leon Coldero playing a traditional Trinidadian parang, "Rio Manzanare" on two cuatros.
I know I'm a softy...but I buss a coupla lil tears when I first saw this.
Happy Birthday Shawn! Wishing you the very best life has to offer for the year ahead.
Love and Soca,
