In this installment of Island Sounds, we venture across the pond to the tropical, ocean front city of Lagos, Nigeria, located in Africa along the South Atlantic, the home of the talented musician Asa, and her incredible soul filled sounds of life and country. We’ve been listening to Asa for a few years now and are consistently amazed at the singer songwriter’s talent and ability to capture not only the feel of her country but the emanating voice of a world that begs for peace and social conscience.
Now before we start spinning from the soapbox and get ourselves accused of hugging trees and their like, not that there’s anything wrong with that, especially a hearty palm tree loaded with coconuts, waiting on a bottle of Barcardi Anejo Rum, we’ll let the music do the talking and introduce to the Island Sound collection, the songs from a lady, playing across an ocean, that reminds us that people, pretty much are the same everywhere.
As such we proudly offer up in this version of the Island Sounds Blog, the wonderful Asa, performing “Fire on the Mountain”, courtesy of YouTube, Asa, and Youtube member Raydee27.
Folks, when it comes to music, it doesn’t get much better than this…
In this version of the Cancun Casa blog, we mix up a bit of Island Sounds, add a little bit of Cancun, Mexico and a whole lot of shaking from Caribbean music maestro Jimmy Buffett and serve up the Halloween boat drinks with the music video “Desperation Samba“, alias Halloween in Tijuana, though if you listen well you’ll hear Jimmy Buffett’s references to one of his more famous Margaritaville establishments, the now former one in Cancun, Mexico, moving to Playa Del Carmen soon, if the coconut telegraph is correct.
The Mayan will celebrate their own version of Halloween via “Hanal Pixan”, a celebration of life, death and the underworld common to the regional inhabitants still honoring pre-Hispanic customs of their ancestors via meals prepared for the deceased and the living alike.
We now leave you with a bit of the Desperation Samba, Cancun Branch, Courtesy of Bombay Bob, YouTube and of course, Jimmy Buffett…

On a Personal Note…this one’s a dedication to someone very close that I
recently lost in my life…It’s my fondest hopes that I’ll be back and
posting regularly in the near future…Dangers.
