    Could you help us understand what you mean by "on de rise"

    Does it mean that people in St Croix and St Kitts are Purchasing or Exporting more local music?

    Could you give us examples of the popular tunes and the names of the artistes that perform them?

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

    My question is how to you measure "better music"?

    Does this mean that there are more sales of certain tunes?

    Does it means that certain artistes are increasing their bookings because of public demand?

    no such ting as better music....quality of music will always be good...buh its only when u have islands say deh music is better than other islands like trini may say it music better than bajan or vice versa...or music from grenada better than anguilla and etc...is it better cause an island may not be familiar wit other islands style....i see it we all have good music and soca can geh only better..buh when u have islands say "our soca is better than ours" jus on who is playin on de airwaves is wrong....
