VA - This Is Soca - 14 Massive Carnival Hits

There´s no question about it, the Caribbean is one of the musical hothouses of the world and this is due to the amazing diversity of musical styles at work there. Thanks to ist history, each island is its own little orchid house of musical cross-fertilizations. Reggae is the musical export of Jamaica, whilst Soca is the good time party-music burning out of Trinidad and the surrounding islands.

While Jamaicanreggae inclines to expressions of suffering and anger, Trinidadian music tends to irreverent satire and abandoned hedonism of Carnival, a two-month annual party of which Soca has become the driving force. To risk a broad generalization, Reggae, with its steady beat, tends to be earthbound, whilstSoca, with its carefree spring, seems airborne.

"This Is Soca" is a collection featuring Chinese Laundry, Superblue, Tambu and some other artist with some of the best soca songs ever out. Also, Andy Stephenson's great rework of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" (among other MJ songs) will make you laugh and move your body at the same time.

All Soca massiv... dis is de mad stomp!!
