RemBunction ft Brother Resistance & Kindred
Rapso is a form of Trinidadian music that grew out of the social unrest of the 1970s. It has been described as “de power of de word in the riddim of de word”. Though often described as a fusion of native soca and calypso with American hip hop, rapso is uniquely Trinidadian

Machel Montano – H.M.A.

29 January, 2014 Leave a comment

Official Music Video for Machel Montano’s 2014 Soca Music hit H.M.A. (Happiest Man Alive)!

Directed and Produced by Damian Marcano for Blue Cinamon Group.

Song produced by Alex “Kubayashi” Barnwell. Written by Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle, Machel Montano & Alex Barnwell. 2014 All Rights Reserved

Innovative and groundbreaking describes the upcoming release of the collaborative
effort between International Soca Superstar, Machel Montano and the critically acclaimed director from the motion picture “God Loves The Fighter”, Damian Marcano. After the success of “Fog” and “Float” it was inevitable for them to team back up yet again.

When the two got together they knew they wanted to do something different for “Happiest Man Alive”. The video concept begins with Montano crash landing to a place called Planet Mas. At first sight, the area seems quite barren, but upon further inspection he realizes he is not alone. After following a beautiful woman across the desert-like planet¬¬¬¬¬¬ he finds himself in a magical garden where the inhabitants experience eternal euphoria. It is a futuristic play on the creation of Man finding his life partner and sharing Happiness with his Woman.
