“I need 5 mins of your time. Been having sleepless days since Sunday, trying to figure out how are we going to do this now! It‘s time for the Whole Soca Industry to Give to what gives to us. Give back the support that is given to us. Show that you have the heart, show that we care about the recent disasters brought upon The Bahamas.”Kewin DuBois

Kerwin Dubois is calling on the Soca fraternity to help the Bahamas.

The devastation in the Bahamas is gut wrenching to say the least. Over 40 people have died and over 70,000 are homeless in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian’s passage last week. An all hands on board approach has been repeated by Caribbean governments and international agencies and amid that, one soca artiste has broken his silence and is calling on the soca fraternity to give back what the Bahamas has given to them, over the years.

‘Bacchanalist’ singer, Kerwin Dubois, ached by the videos and images of the Hurricane’s devastation, took to social media on Thursday. He’d created a video- some five minutes long, detailing the emotions of those who are now faced with the clean up and restoration of the tourism destination. “So what we going and do now? Every year we’re faced with this disaster. These people lost everything. You know what it is to lose everything?,” says DuBois. He says he is going to the Bahamas, expressing that he feels the need to be there to help in anyway that he can. Now, with a challenge thrown out, the artist is waiting for feedback from the stakeholders of soca- artistes, promoters and even fans, on what they propose to do, to help the people of the Bahamas.

On October 1st, fans of reggae in New York City will be treated to a one of a kind event, when reggae sensation, Tarrus Riley graces the stage of the world renowned SOBs music venue where he’ll present music off his ‘Blending Life’s Experiences Musically’ EP.

Although listening sessions are a common occurrence in the music realm, Riley who recently delivered to rave reviews from both fans and music industry insiders, an unforgettable musical experience in his homeland of Jamaica, will replicate the latter in New York, according to his team at Destine Media. Simply and expertly, Tarrus replaced the typical album listening affair with a live band experience. “People can expect to have an up close and personal BLEM experience with Tarrus, who will be performing in the famous SOBs for the first time. This event with limited capacity will be a special event for NY,” said his publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson.

In an added bonus and to keep the night’s memories alive, the ticketed admission will include a copy of the coveted EP. Produced by Izy Beats, B.L.E.M (Blending Life’s Experiences Musically) offers a diverse offering of six songs inspired by the crooner’s personal situations.

“I’ve been in one of these songs at some point in my life,” Tarrus recently said.

Doors Open at 7pm.

Undeniably one of the hardest working bands on the scene, ten-times Grammy nominated, Third World this summer celebrated the release of their 22nd studio album, More Work To Be Done , produced by Damian “Jr Gong” Marley.

The Reggae unit recently completed a very successful tour around the world – conquering four continents and 10 countries including USA, Canada, France, Spain, Tunisia, Ghana, Austria, Netherlands, Switzerland, Curacao. The band describes their experience as powerful, refreshing and encouraging.”Touring is everything. We take you on a 45 year symphonious journey.  It’s our way of sharing our passion with the world and thank everyone in person. Third World show is always a little different, there is something there for everyone.” explained a band insider.

The band’s 22nd album has been produced by Damian Marley.

From their modest 1975 beginnings as an opening act for Bob Marley & the Wailers’ World Tour, to present times, Third World has stood the test of time delivering a lasting memory through their showmanship. Shortly after concluding their 2019 winter touring season, and in keeping with the ‘More Work To Be Done’ sentiment, the globetrotting band launched their intercontinental journey at the Issa Foundation Fundraiser at Couples Resorts in Ocho Rios alongside Grammy Award-winning Australian group Air Supply and rising star Koffee.
