Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines – Everything Level (Tout Bagay Bon) is a new single that was released by Zamfir “Man Zangie” Adams in St. Vincent and the Grenadines on May 19th, 2017. This new genre of music dubbed “SalSoca” is a multi-cultural musical crossover, incorporating Latino, Caribbean and French riddims.
The song was written by Hayden Billingy and performed by Man Zanzie, who pays homage to our French heritage as he rhythmically echoes the French Patois slang “Tout Bagay Bon” meaning “Everything good” or as we say in Vincentian parlance “Everything level”.
This Spanish and French inspired Ragga Soca bears heavy resemblance to Zouk music from our French neighbours. The song reiterates the power of music to start a revolution against violence, hate, racism, bigotry and crimes perpetuated against innocent people, especially those from the black race.
Listen to “Everything Level”
If we can hit bass and treble instead of fighting each other, then everything will be level. Music must be seen as a medium to unite people and to effect the change we need among our youths, instead of inciting violence and causing trouble. Man Zangie is the reigning Calypso Monarch from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, who has won the monarchy three consecutive years (2014, 2015 & 2016).
His entrance this year unto the Soca scene gives birth to a sweet Caribbean sound, appealing for the cease of violence and crime, and the need to unlock our youth’s musical powers.
The musical composition was done by Hayden Billingy from St. Vincent and Meriaha St. Louis from St. Lucia, who also mixed and mastered the track.
Live guitar was done by Javan Talbert
The song was co-produced by MS Studio and Arch City Records.
