Repect Our Soca Pioneers
Under brilliant sunshine and filled with unstoppable passion the diverse cultures of many continents flow freely within the heart of St. Lucia. From such diversity comes a strength and desire to triumph that could never be stifled. This is best seen in two vital points of unity for this magnificent island.and why wouldnt they make the theme song a zouk song? i mean this must be a joke, maybe bhalstix who say we claiming people culture can give us some background news on this?

Cricket and Zouk.
They were both birthed from the undeniable rebellion grown in the hearts of our ancestors.
Zouk combines pulsating African rhythms derived from the percussive soul of the vast continent with more recent western influences of Jazz, Blues, and Electronica, to create a music that builds a free party atmosphere and energy, which are impossible to quell.
Meanwhile, Cricket was brought to the island by colonists, but was perfected by islanders as they merged the natural strength and grace of their forefathers with these foreign rules of play to become fearsome giants in a game that is now loved the world over.
On Tuesday 6th August, when the lights go up in the Beausejour Stadium these two vibrant elements will be combined, as glorious Cricket will be fueled by Zouk rhythms and percussion to create West Indian history in the first ever Caribbean Premier League.
This assuredly momentous occasion has been embodied in the pulsating theme song, “Zouks On Fire”, sung by St. Lucia’s own Sir Lancealot, for the aptly named St. Lucia Zouks, led by Team Captain Darren Sammy.
The infectious song is sure to have the crowds cheering and singing along, encouraging the talented cricketers to take the grounds fired up and ready to charge ahead.
And as the conch shells signal the many 6’s and 4’s storming the field of play in this unique display of Carnival Cricket, St. Lucia’s heart and soul, heritage and culture, will be melded as fiercely together as the St. Lucia Zouks fans to its victorious players.
