Bequia Kids on Pan

Alston BECKET Cyrus
Legendary soca / ragga-soca / calypso artiste.
His latest album, Mo Rush - 2017, contains remakes of Coming High, his 1977 break-out monster hit, and Legalize De Grass
Back in the Caribbean after completing their 2018 European Tour.
Raised in Antigua, West Indies on a potent mixture of Bob Dylan, calypso, and the ocean, Joshu is bringing a new island sound to the world. With notes of Jack Johnson and Jose Gonzalez, his songs resonate with the laid back lyricist in all of us. His Caribbean childhood has inspired a beautiful combination of groove and folk.
Three singles deep this year (find them at joshu.art/music) and with a growing fan base, Joshu's debut EP is set for release January 2019. Between recording and production he has been travelling the US and Europe.
Having honed his stage presence with three years leading Sound Citizens (touring across the Caribbean & UK and personally producing 3 albums), it's no wonder Joshu has the ability to create a particularly unique feeling of connection at live performances.
The Elite Steel Band
Socialising, Drinks, Dancing and wonderful local music. Always a firm favourite on Thursday night at Frangipani!
…feels that his mission is to uplift the music of the steel-pan and make it more pronounced in the international arena. “My love for music is part of my spiritual being.” He recently won the Peoples Choice award for the Best Steel Pan Player in SVG.
