Ian Bourne calls the music of Bajan music duo Kite “Barbadian Alternative Music” and indeed their music breaks from what we usually hear on island radio – but Shona calls it “Bajan fusion”. Both are correct and as always when we try to describe music with words we face an impossible challenge – not to mention that just when we think we have Kite figured out, labeled and pigeon-holed – their next song comes along and blows away any label.
Whatever you call Kite’s music, head on over to their MySpace site for some samples and you’ll see what we mean. In the end I can’t categorize Kite at all, except to say I love their music.
Some good reading and listening for my mood today. (Your mileage may vary…)
