Bunji Garlin & Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley - The Message

Trinidadian Soca star Bunji Garlin and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley teamed up on a new song called “The Message.” It’s a passionate forward-thinking song fighting for the souls of our youth and the future generation. You can hear the song below. The track will be available on October 16th via VP Records.

The two Caribbean artists merge soca, dancehall and reggae into a universal sound on this world cry anthem, produced by Philip Mecksepe. They go verse for verse addressing society’s illls and Marley delivers a powerful hook aspiring for change. “There is music in your soul, minerals in your soil, children full of beauty worth way much more than oil. While history unfolds, don’t let the good things spoil, oh no.”

Bunji Garlin gives more insight behind the collaboration.”We recorded this song at Gong’s studio in Florida. It was a 4am studio session after we spent about an hour and a half just talking and getting a vibe off of each other’s knowledge, views and energies. I appreciate the project and artist because we were able to let both our musical backgrounds work for us to execute this. It is almost a fable to see the son of reggae legend and also a legend in his own right and artist of the soca genre meld so effortlessly.”

Marley is slated to perform in Garlin’s homeland on October 30th, 2015 in Tobago at Pigeon Point (Colours Of Reggae) and October 31st, 2015 in Trinidad at Hasley Crawford Stadium (Reggae On The Bay Presents Hennessy Artistry).
