Hi There music friends. While there is "Nothing new under the sun", there are new interpretations of old songs. Here is my version of "O Come All Ye Faithful". I had a good vibe about it while recording it and I hope you get a good vibe while listening to it.
I recently shared some new music on Soundcloud. Its cool to see that people have been listening to it. I hope that you get a chance to listen as well. Click on the link for some tuneage: https://soundcloud.com/hear-steel-drums-play
I have a tab on my Facebook fan page called "Fan of The Week". Its a n application that automatically chooses a new fan and recognizes them for a week. So, how does one become a "Fan Of The Week? Well, its very easy. Fan of the week stats are compiled by visitors' interaction with the my page. Visitors get points awarded for their visits, comments, posting pictures, "likes" etc. More interaction increases your chances for getting picked. Another way of getting selected is by "becoming a candidate". Clicking on the "Fan Of The Week" icon (which is located on the top right portion of my timeline) will take you to the candidate sign up page. At the moment the chances of being picked are in your favor as I don't really have heavy traffic to my page. Its essentially a ground floor opportunity to interact with me and be able to say "Hey I knew him when". Head on over to my fan page and get involved! I'll be waitin' for ya. www.facebook.com/hearsteeldrumsplay
Hello Music Friends Carnival season is underway in Trinidad and Tobago. There will be lots of music, color, and many aspects of visual and performing arts will be represented. I stumbled across a video of a group of musicians belting out a percussive groove. This groove is what drives the rhythm of the steel band and is called a "Rhythm Section" or an " Engine Room". You will hear them playing without an accompanying steel band. I'd describe the rhythms as "Infectious" Enjoy.
