Sounds by the Sea: The Merry Makers Steel Band

The Merry-Maker’s play a cool mix of Dancehall Soca (the carnival party vibe) and old time “saucy” calypsos. Their sound also encompasses Latin (rumba, samba, meringue, tango); Zouk (French Caribbean), funky reggae plus more traditional Caribbean sounds.

In homage to the ‘Visions and Voyages’ theme of Arts by the Sea 2016, expect a sound that will transport you to truly faraway and idyllic locations. With a soundtrack for drinking rum in the sun, this upbeat three-piece is guaranteed to take you from an autumn day in Bournemouth, across to the Caribbean and back.
