Farmer-Nappy-Big-People-Party-Album-Cover-1024x1024

Any true Caribbean reveler (over a certain age) remembers the days of full brass sections accompanying performers on their soca tracks and the stage. In contrast to the the current environment of studio-made riddims and electronic sounds, Farmer Nappy and De Red Boyz hit us with a blast from the past on “Big People Party,” a tune that lit up the fetes and had even young partiers trying their hand at a few long-time dance steps. —Tishanna Williams
