I have noticed a contentious thread where the discussion follows two paths regarding what is and is not Ragga Soca. However, it is clear to me that, once again, we have a labeling issue. It appears that in St. Vincent and the Grenadines the term Ragga Soca is used to define what the rest of the region calls Groovy Soca. The problem is that for the rest of the region the understanding for the term 'Ragga Soca' is a combination of Dancehall style intermixed with the Soca riddim.
VP is not giving ground and contends that Ragga Soca was started in St. Vincent while many are attempting to differentiate the styles as basically two patterns of the music namely Ragga (Jamaican vibes) and Groovy or slower more dancing style Soca.
Apparently you can't convince someone from St. Vincent and the Grenadines that what you understand as Ragga is different. We can always agree to disagree and let it rest there. However, we can also state our opinions here for others to consume. It is apparent (as stated in the other thread) that many onlookers come here for information. We can provide information for their understanding or confuse them further.
What is your opinion?
