Guitar (Cover)

Here's a video of me playing acoustic guitar.

Reggae-  is most easily recognized by the rhythmic accents on the off-beat, usually played by guitar or piano (or both), known as the skank. This pattern accents the second and fourth beat in each bar (or the "and"s of each beat depending on how the music is counted) and combines with the drums emphasis on beat three to create a unique feel and sense of phrasing in contrast to most other popular genres focus on beat one, the "downbeat" (Source: Wikipedia- Reggae)

Kompa- is easy and fun to dance to, incorporating musical traditions like Méringue, which propel dancers around the floor with lively, active beats (though Compas has a slower beat and dance than Merengue). (Source: Wikipedia- Compas)

Caribana in Toronto

Who's going? Everyone

Toronto's Caribana weekend is the place to be. The parties, events, and live bands to enjoy is definitely must not miss. When you arrive you feel it in the air. People come from all over to get loose from their busy lives and have fun. The club vibe is live, hot scene, and Beautiful women. My cousins and I planned this trip for months in advance. We arrived Saturday morning at 1am from Montreal, which was a 6 hour drive. Saturday afternoon we went to Caribana parade, which consists of people of all dressed in carnival costumes and dancing with trucks floats playing live island mix. Sunday we plan to go the beach and  go site seeing in downtown T.O.

Thought of the Day:

"Work Hard, Play Hard" - Wiz Khalifa
There is a time for everything, when work needs to be done it should be and there is a time for fun. Enjoy the weekend people Caribana or not.
