I love Soca. End of story! I want to share with you some of my favorite shower/commute/cooking/gym music. It moves me. AND you can play (some of) it for children!
This time I want to be a little more deliberate about sharing with you the origins and history of Soca music. It’s more than whinin’ and jumping up. It’s more than costumes and glitter (Although I LOVE costumes and glitter!). It’s a growing and changing art form that bridges the Atlantic and houses an array of influences and influencers. Do more than listen, learn.
