Pop & Soca
Pop & Soca Music by Coconut Groove One reason many tourists choose a Caribbean destination over other resorts are the sensual delights to be found in the local cuisine, picturesque landscapes, romantic hideaways and the distinctive sounds of island music. The natural vibrations of steel drum and soca bands playing familiar tunes late into the evening with the waves washing up against the shore are unforgettable sounds for first time visitors. For those returning home from such a vacation, many find fitting back into a regular routine is not as easy as it once was compared to the carefree island way of life. So why leave it all behind? Especially when there are so many inviting ways to keep those memories alive. One of the surest touchstones is music. To help rekindle that island zest for life, Coconut Groove has recently released a Pop and Soca music CD that goes down like one of your favourite tropical cocktails (remember the ones with the umbrellas in them). You'll hear a potpourri of nostalgia-filled songs done up Caribbean-style. Starting with a 'Seaside Medley' which segues through 'Emotions', 'Somewhere out there', 'Save the best for last' and 'She's out of my life'. Then keeping the groove going is an extended track called 'Paradise Medley' with playful renditions of 'Sweet Dreams',' I Will Survive', 'Smooth Operator', 'Unbreak My Heart' and 'Killing Me Softly'. The CD closes in a party mood with two upbeat originals - the tasty Coconut Water and the mouth-watering Banana Bread. With it's easy going manner, the Coconut Groove Pop & Soca music CD is the perfect antidote for the post vacations blas. It also serves as a good backdrop while you're unpacking, or when company drops by and you're looking to add a dash of tropical delight to a festive evening filled with island food and drink. If you haven't experienced the earthly delights yet awaiting you on a Caribbean holiday, this one will get you primed. Either way it's a must for any serious sun-drenched, fun-seeking, mood-enhanced CD collector/adventurer.
