Words by Kaya.lah

Kenya-Eugene

Amongst the crisp hip-hop, driving calypso, and irie roots reggae, there’s an interesting sense of class finely woven into the Virgin Islands’ musical tapestry. Ms. Kenya Eugene is a prime example: an effortless songstress and seasoned fashion model, she is now getting her art out en masse, giving us a great opportunity to showcase how diverse the Caribbean really is.

Words by Jesse Serwer

As the guitarist of the band Chic and one half of the Chic Organization production/songwriting team with bassist Bernard Edwards, Nile Rodgers was the driving force behind the disco era’s best music. Besides for Chic’s numerous hits (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) and underrated gems (“My Feet Keep Dancing,” “Real People”), Rodgers, along with Edwards, was behind the sound of Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” and Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” to name a few undeniable classics from that period. And of course the Rodgers hit parade continued into the post-disco era, and the current day. But you already knew all this.
