D A style in Trini, about time - pure Bouyon
What exactly is pure Bouyon if Bouyon is in reality fusion music in a similar manner to how Soca is also fusion music?

That track can best be described as a Bouyon Soca and there are also some Jab Jab elements in there as well. The musical fusion in "Famalay" fits the theme of the song title about unity and one Caribbean family.

Above song is not that much disimilar to other Bouyon Soca fusion songs released for 2019 and also in years before like this one here:-

Patrice Roberts - Dutty Bad (Simon Say! Riddim) "2019 Soca" (Official Audio)

Don't know why some folks are acting like its the first time in history that MM or T&T artists have done songs with the Bouyon Soca musical fusion. In fact many folks were also arguing that MM's "MOR" was also a Bouyon Soca fusion when it came out back in 2014.

That "Famalay" song is a well written and vocally executed song but the musical fusion that it contains which is a Bouyon Soca fusion is nothing new. Maybe some folks are getting overexcited because it was produced by a DA producer rather than by a Trini producer as MOR was or a Lucian producer as the Simon Say Riddim was?

This Asa Bantan track below produced by Fridge and Ridge out of DA is much nearer to being a pure Bouyon than "Famalay" but as I asked what really is pure Bouyon when Bouyon is in fact a fusion music genre that regularly incorporates elements of other music genres like Soca and Zouk into the fusion?

I am not insecure as I pointed out quite accurately that the song is a Bouyon Soca fusion. The ones who are insecure are those who fail to acknowledge that the song has both Bouyon and Soca elements even though they are familiar with both music genres.

And for your information DadaMuzic has been producing both Soca and Bouyon music for quite a number of years now and has been working regularly with Flipo (now called Azaryah) so not every track he produces is so-called pure Bouyon especially when he produces them for T&T and other non-DA artists .

Check out interview below with Skinny Fabulous from yesterday to hear him clarify that "Famalay" should have been labelled as a "Bouyon Soca" when it was uploaded but that he was the one who insisted that it should be labelled as just a Soca but is now taking the opportunity to correct that in interviews because there is a Bouyon influence in the song and Dominicans are not happy that the DA influence in the song was not acknowledged.
