Alison Hinds. Queen of Soca Music. A veteran in the music Caribbean Music industry. Hinds has been active since the 1990s and she has constantly released quality Soca music. Hinds is not a native of Trinidad & Tobago but she has definitely shown that you do not have to hail from the Country that is credited as the originator of a genre to do well in it and to remain true to the roots of the genre.
I was a little girl when ‘Faluma‘ was originally released by Square One – the tune featured Alison Hinds speaking the language of the Saamaka tribe in Suriname. Then and to this day I have NO real clue of what Hinds is actually singing in the record but I know it has to do with enjoying Soca music of sort – or at the very least the lyrics make me enjoy the bounce of this Soca riddim. I personally have never seen a music video for Faluma from the Square One days so I was happy to find out that Hinds had shot a video for Faluma as a re-release. This music video also features Hinds’ 2011 release ‘Makelele‘ and again I do not know what Hinds is saying throughout the lyrics, entirely, but from the English I do understand I LOVE IT! Whenever I hear of a new Alison Hinds song I immediately give it a listen because I know it is going to be great Soca music. Although it is cooling down in Atlanta, I am all fired up and ready for Carnival 2013 and Summer 2013! Bring back the heat and the vybz…
