As a Trinidadian woman of African decent, most people would think they know what kind of music someone such as myself would like. That's how stereotyping works unfortunately. R&B, Calypso, Soca, Soul, Gospel to name a few of the genres people may link with a person of my background. I mean every caribbean born person who happens to be black should be drawn to Soca and Calypso right? It's only natural!!! It's in our blood, it's deep in our bones, in our DNA. Newsflash... I'm one of those who will admit that that's not really my kind of music. Well to be honest, there are some soca and calypso tunes that I find myself drawn to - David Rudder's "Trini to the Bone" and "Nuff Respect" and Kitchener's "Old Lady Walk a Mile and a half and she Tay-lay-lay" just to name a few.
"Nuff Respect" by David Rudder
And of course I love my gospel music. There are some songs, however that most would be surprised to here me say "Yeah I can't get enough of that!" Take a look at the list below to see if you might be among those surprised, or if you just want to see if you may share my taste. Now the music on this list varies widely so if you find yourself liking every song on there then we're soul mates... Ha- ha.
This isn't all of it but its a compilation of music that I enjoy in all its different genres.
Whenever painting or doing anything creative these songs are the go to group. Here are two videos from the list. Are you surprised? Do you share my wide taste in music? You can let me know what you think in the comment section. Enjoy!
