BABYLON WARRIORS (Roots music)

The music of the Warriors is at once soul-full, gusty and melodically memorable, they are true and impressive exponents of Reggae music, born in the Caribbean that you can't hear without being affected.
The Warriors members include Patrick Barrow- leader and rhythm guitar, Harrington Trapp-lead vocal, Lesmond Sosa- lead guitar, Carlos Hislop-keyboards, Raymond Barrow-bass guitar, Emmanuel Good-Drums.
The Babylon Warriors writes nothing but this genuine hymn, as a matter of fact, all thundering evocations of Caribbean sensuality mixed with relevant messages. That's the thing about Reggae; it's where we're at right now. The trouble we're in right now, about government and science being used against people in¬stead of for them. About how the rich make the laws
for all, about strategy being made behind closed doors. Reggae encourages us to enjoy life, rise above the madness.
