Why 2015 Is the Year of Bouyon music


2015bouyon

Is Bouyon making a comeback this year?

Not since the Original WCK world tour of the 1997 smash hit album, Too Many Cooks, has this Dominican genre had so much visibility.

For the first quarter of 2015 the Bouyon masters, Triple K, Asa Bantan, Kross Vybz, Nayee and even The Original Bouyon Pioneers have demonstrated staying power and the ability to keep fans delighted with the most new songs in years.

Bouyon to the World 

Imagine sold out stadiums across the world with Bouyon artists headlining, a Bouyon Festival where classic bands unite and new Bouyon bands gain notoriety. 

Soon, celebrities will be flying in for Carnival, Creole Fest or Bouyon Fest to get a taste of Dominica’s original and intoxicating sounds.  A spontaneous and free experience like no other. 

You, the listeners and fans, have been making this happen. 

Why It’s Easier to Succeed With Bouyon Music Than You Might Think 

Finally, we are making the jump to overseas lands. 

Internationally, Dominican born or bred DJs, radio hosts, and artists like DJ Flip, Kold Fusion, Big Ben and Blackberry Sounds from Canada, Royalty Band from New York are infusing Bouyon music into upscale clubs and fetes and on airwaves where Soca and Dancehall previously dominated. 

With the ease of collaborations across geographic boundaries, artists with a love for Bouyon are infusing Bouyon’s infectious rhythms with other popular beats to make for cross cultural, genre-bending, hits like Triple K’s 2015 smash, In Love With The Coco. 

Our Bouyon Fest has made a comeback for Carnival and can only strengthen our music.  We suggest it be a competition like Calypso, to raise the stakes and participation to the max.  

Imitation is the best form of flattery 

Exposure of Bouyon elements from Caribbean artists like Ricky T in “Pressure Bad” gains more attention to the genre. Even crossover celebrities like Machel Montano diversify their sound using Bouyon as an influence.  

Our beloved genre is making a statement in a major way.

Soon we may land another international show as big as Grammacks ’79 Super Bowl half time performance in Miami. 

You, Bouyon fans are the number one reason why Bouyon is poised to take over the world. 

Through social media you set the trend and let artists, producers, and labels know what you want to hear.

How do we take Bouyon all the way to the top?

All you need to do is keep making requests at the club, share new hits on your Twitter, Facebook & Instagram.

One simple act can put Bouyon on the map. And who knows, maybe 2016 will see a Bouyon artist picking up Best International Artist at the Grammys!
