Da Jelly- Bean Riddim Christmas Project: features various Caribbean artists from St. Lucia, Grenada, Jamaica and Trinidad; capturing the accents, moods and energy of the Caribbean diaspora on mostly one Riddim. What makes this project so exciting is the very potent level of creativity that each individual artist exhibits in their version of celebrating Christmas season.
In the lead track “No Santa” - by the delightful dancehall singer Moncherie from St. Lucia, the pace is set with an energetic musical mantra setting aside conventional Christmas wishes from Santa and going for a man with a body carved for the ladies. This track sets the tempo and mood and introduces this delicious Jelly-Bean Riddim.
Just like a pack of edible jelly beans, when you explore this musical package you will find a plethora or different flavors. Whether you try some “Black Puddin” by Hebrue or bust some “Bamboo Tonight” by Invader, this album has enough music to take your through the season and spill over into 2013 with tracks like Any Ting by Shervon Nicholas and Gal Whine For Me by Kerwin Bowers.
