Marina Orchestra plus DJ Black

marina orchestra

Trop n’ Roll is call-and-response style vocals, ringing out over a driving four-on-the-floor kick drum, while a reverb-laden guitar strikes out a clave beat. Congas and shakers weave out poly-rhythms, Trumpets and Trombones punctuate the groove, and deep down beneath it all lives the melodic Bass lines holding it all down. It approaches Reggae without ever quite hitting it on the nose. It gives a nod to Caribbean Soca and West African Highlife without the guardrails to be labeled as such. It rocks out when it wants to, but always brings it back to that tropical sentiment.

That about sums up Marina Orchestra
