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.

BABYLON WARRIORS  (Culture Music)

It was in 1978, when Babylon Warriors, a group of expatriates from Belize got together to play reggae music in their new home town of Los Angeles. They now enjoy the status of being L.A.'s first and longest standing reggae band.

In 1990, Babylon Warriors received national attention while performing their reggae hit, "Brutal," before thousands at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum during the visit of African Freedom Fighter, Nelson Mandela.

Founding member of Babylon Warriors and L.A. based Caye Records, Patrick Barrows helped elevate the career of Belizean artist Andy Palacio as well as the Garifuna culture. Barrows heads the Belize Cultural Association's annual "Caye Fest", which celebrates the rich and varied culture of his tropical Central American country.

Belize, a newly independent, Massachusetts-sized country, is located on the Central American mainland just south of the Yucatan. A British colony until 1981, the people are mainly Black and English-speaking. The music runs from reggae to calypso and soca--at least that was the case until Punta came along.

Beginning with early musical experiments between two African groups (Creoles and Garifunas), this rhythm known as Punta, is mainly a Belizean phenomenon. But, with tribal and world-beat music's rise in popularity, Punta has put Belize on the musical map.

Babylon Warriors electrified the rhythm from its traditional style taking Punta music into world beat arenas and straight into the hearts of music lovers world wide.
