Junior Gong/Bunji Garlin "The Message Reggae and Soca collaborations 2015

An unusual collab – A Marley and a Soca Artiste

If this was ever done before please pardon my ignorance. But who would have taught they would hear a Marley and a Soca artiste on the same song?  Obviously not me and it is indeed a pleasant surprise.”

Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley has collaborated with popular soca artiste Bunji Garlin addressing society’s ills and aspiring for change. The song entitled ‘The Message’ is produced by Phillip “Jr. Blender” Meckseper. In a release, Bunji Garlin gives an insight on the collaboration, “We recorded this song at Gong’s studio in Florida.It was a 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” he said.

“The Message” is a powerful delivery coming from two highly influential Caribbean artistes in their own rights. The song airs their concerns and thoughts in relation to ‘the soul of youths and future generation.‘ 

Junior Gong is slated to perform in Trinidad and Tobago ending October at the Hasley Crawford Stadium.
