The Mecca’s unique sound incorporates strong EDM elements fused with a Hip-Hop approach and pop vocal tones all wrapped beautifully with his Caribbean influences. He brings captivating music for the 21st century, with the ability to inspire and the power to get anyone grooving on any dancefloor! Merging solid lyrical artistry with a deep well of emotion and determination, he has surfaced as an astounding musical force.

Formerly known as Young Mecca, he currently celebrates two decades in the music industry with nearly 200 songs either released or written/co-written. In 2009 he became the first ever YouthStar in Saint Lucia, immerging winner of the island’s YouthFest competition and then walked away with The People’s Choice Award at the Undaground Music Awards in Bermuda the following year and in 2011 he boasted a stunning 73 track releases, 4 mixtapes and 6 music videos.

To add to his list of accomplishments, this exceptionally talented lyricist had his single ZOOM ZOOM prominently featured in episodes of VH1’s Single Ladies, ABC Family’s Chasing Life, Fox’s Red Band Society and Netflix’s Fuller House while his single FLAT STOMACH was the premiere single at the 2014 Labo Ethnik Fashion & Lifestyle week in Paris. 2015 continued to build on the progress of previous years . The Mecca executed a promotional tour of the United States, enthralling audiences with his electric sound and animated performances.

The Mecca’s newest release, Number One Hit, is an enthralling mix of adrenaline pumping bass, explosive synths and pop culture references and features 3 time Groovy Soca monarch Arthur Allain.

100 Thousand Poets for Change Saint Lucia

We ran into Saint Lucian poet Kensley Charlemagne at Baywalk Mall. He was kind enough to share with us not only his poetry but also his plan to organise 100 Thousand Poets for Change Saint Lucia event.

Kensley Charlemagne writes beautiful poetry and he seems to have poems on stock for just any soul.  You do not have to be a poetry fan to enjoy reading them – they are gentle yet straightforward and to the point.

Poet Kensley Charlemagne is organising 100 Thousand Poets for Change Saint Lucia event

He has now embarked on an ambitious journey to participate in 100 Thousand Poets for Change by organising  Saint Lucia event of this global demonstration/celebration of poetry to promote serious social, environmental, and political change.

On September 24, 2016 poets, musicians and artists around the world will be organising poetry readings, music and dance performances focused on issues of peace, justice, and sustainability. The event will offer an opportunity for a peaceful global discussion on issues such as war, global warming, poverty, racism, gender inequality, homelessness, gun violence, police brutality, lack of affordable medical care, censorship, and animal cruelty. Individual organisers are free to choose the specific topic and focus of their local event. Kensley wisely chose the topic of RAPE, sadly all too common gruesome act in beautiful Saint Lucia.

If you are interested in participating please email Kensley at pdkreations@gmail.com or check out Facebook page for the event that will take place Keebees in Rodney Bay village.
