There’s nothing like a woman with a sick lyrical aptitude. When that woman’s the daughter of one of the Caribbean’s most decorated Soca artistes and the wife of the lyricist himself, that ability triples. It’s Friday and Fay-Ann Lyons and her husband Bunji Garlin have both unleashed two riveting social commentary type soca tracks, this as the path to the most anticipated season, Carnival 2019, becomes vividly apparent.

Fan-Ann Lyons wants fetters to go back to the days of true enjoyment and feting with wild abandon.

The husband and wife duo has been rallying for international support for flood victims in Trinidad over the past week, but their philanthropic work in their homeland has not affected their desire to impact the world with good lyrical content. For quite some time, Fay Ann has been blunt about the way feting (partying), particularly in Trinidad and Tobago has been affected by the advent of social media and mobile technology. The new single, “Feel Good”, produced by Badjohn Republic, addresses the matter in a very powerful way.

Bunji Garlin’s single on the track addresses rumours.

Her new release comes on the heels of the death of one of T&T’s and the Caribbean’s most loved Calypso icons, the man who gave us ‘Poverty is Hell’ and “Yuh Looking For Horn”, songs that spoke of issues faced by so many. Winston Bailey, best known as the Mighty Shadow was, like many other calypsonians, a man who spoke about what he saw. The Soca dynamic is often less controversial, with artistes more inclined to sing songs to entice enjoyment and dancing, more than thought and conversation. Fay Ann’s ‘Feel Good’ along with Garlin’s ‘See Meh’- a song that speaks of rumours, are both tracks with powerful difference. Bunji, in particular, has been known to use his Soca platform to speak up, from time to time. In 2001, he had given soca lovers ‘Licks’- a track that spoke on the issue of sexual assault against women. Fiery as could be, his effective tone and new age Soca force had placed the spotlight directly on the issue, while at the same time, giving fete lovers a rhythm they couldn’t help but move to.

The Foli Riddim features other artistes. M1 has a track called, ‘Shy’ and songwriter Dale Ryan comes front with ‘Mama’. Another female artiste, Jonelle, has a track by the riddim’s name and Salty rounds it up with ‘Body Good’- a really old school, flavorful anthem.

The Caribbean community is today in uproar after one of its very comedic influencers became the centre of allegations of physical abuse as detailed by his significant other. The community is adamant that no acts of violence against women or children for that matter, will be condoned, this after the female in question broke her silence via social media, explaining that she has been the victim of traumatic attacks and even alleging that her life could have been snuffed out when her attacker allegedly drew a gun against her.

This feature deals specifically with warning signs for women as it relates to the potential of attack by their significant other. We believe it has become necessary- and it really always has been imperative that information be made available to persons should they become victims of domestic violence or any type of abuse.

Breakingthecycle.org, a website platform that aims to break the cycle of violence in relationships specifically for young people, explains that dating abuse encompasses many types of abuse, including physicalemotional, verbal, digital and sexual.  “It can be hard to tell when a behaviour crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy or abusive,” the site explains, noting that dating violence is a pattern and as such, women are encouraged to be aware of these early warning signs, and what could become a series of abusive behaviors over time.

In recent months efforts by Ebuzztt to get Bunji Garlin’s input on various matters proved futile because, as he told us then, he wished to remain off radar as he had been working on something major that would eventually be revealed.

In the aftermath of his father’s passing, Garlin used social media to express his appreciation for the words of strength offered by his wife, Fay Ann Lyons. Months later, the pair unveiled plans to effectively carry the creatives in Trinidad and Tobago and across the Caribbean, in a trendy, digitised fashion. Earlier today, they introduced something called ‘Chrending’, set to become a dot com… a play on the word Trending, and a word certainly fashioned in the broken English dialect often heard across the West Indies.

At a media launch to unveil their new digital platform, which is aimed at cushioning the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in such a way that would allow creatives to continue to earn, the Alvarez duo explained that the website, when up and running, would facilitate virtual concerts and other performances to the benefit of every stakeholder in the Caribbean’s entertainment industry. Specific details relative to copyright, according to Lyons-Alvarez, were still being ironed out amid talks with the Copyright Organization of Trinidad and Tobago.

Explaining that often time, artistes who utilise their personal Instagram Live platforms to host virtual events are interrupted for one reason or another, FayAnn said Chrending would eliminate such interruptions. She further explained that the website would allow each individual creative to possibly reach larger audiences than what would normally be their personal platform reach. “The idea is to bring the Caribbean audience together so when one person uses the platform you reach a wider audience and you are not just limited to the followers you have on Instagram,” she said.

The idea comes even as Trinidad and Tobago remains under restriction with entertainment being legally halted by way of the Pubic Health Ordinance, which prohibits gatherings of more than 10 persons in any one space. There will be no carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021.
