Marflix - Riddims Tropicale #30Second part of the Riddims Tropicale Carnival Series for this year – in February we were rocking to Bouyon and Reketeng from Dominica, in March we move to the neighbour islands Guadeloupe and Martinique (preferably by ferry, the so-called “Express” des Iles).

To keep the Carnival vibes flowing we picked mainly uptempo Zouk, Cadence and new and traditional Carnival music. The last 20min are dedicated to traditional drumming like Gwoka and Bèlè, some in Beguine style.
Of course there’s way more music to discover: Rap, Bouyon, Reggae and for sure Dancehall is also huge over there, but not covered with this show. In the radios you mainly hear slow R’n’B style Zouk / Zouk love, which is another thing.

Ti’ Punch time now: enjoy this edition of Riddims Tropicale with Bamboolaz, Kassav’, Eric Virgal, Franky Vincent, Kasika, Ban’Biyo, Les Aiglons, Bele Boom Bap, Les Vikings de la Guadeloupe, Bwa Bande, Anzala, Admiral T, Man Dupuits, Freem, 12 Salopards and many more.
