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.
