    Thumbs up English Zouk

    Can you Zouk lovers post some of the nicest Zouk tunes in english in this thread? i really like Zouk but i can't enjoy it to the fullest cuz i do not speak french. So for us non-creole/French speakers, post some of the good english zouk.

    U should try zouk music from Dominica with music like Michele HENDERSON's or Antigua's Burning Flames to start
    I'm going to try to find some from Martinique and Guadeloupe.
    But the question is: How can't you appreciate a song to the fullest when it's not in your own language?
    That is the difference between english and french speaking people. We listen to everything be it english, spanish, african, portuguese etc etc. We just feel the vibe.

    Great post. I had plans myself to post some zouk songs in English. And yes, It would be best to start with the Dominicans, Ophelia, Exile One, Rough and Ready, etc. Kassav' has been dropping tunes in English too ( On Chimen Pou Demen, West indies) and they even released a CD of all with 3 Trini/Bajan vocalists (Shades of Black). The influence of r&b has also prompted many zouk love vocalists to drop English phrases or words in their songs. Often times, just the song's title is in English. I'll post a couple "english zouk" later including "come dis afternoon" by Taxikreol.
