Episode 23: Dada and the Caribbean Music Family – Laura and Nigel chat with Dominican super-producer, Krishna “Dada” Lawrence to get a handle on the wider Caribbean music scene. Dada outlines the possibilities for Caribbean music outside of Carnivals and festivals, and provides a wider context to the business of music by outlining his successes as a music producer of numerous hits and road marches in the festivals of the Caribbean, and his role as an advocate for collective management of music rights in the region. He also develops the idea of Caribbean music being a fusion of island sounds including his native bouyon.
