'Radica' by Kenneth Salick

I am moved by 'Radica', a Soca-style song (great music; greater lyrics) by Kenneth Salick from Trinidad. Salick is a village handyman, not a trendy, smooth pop or hip hop singer with music industry backing. An MP3 of 'Radica' can be downloaded from for 99 cents. I think if he changes the name from 'Radica' to Radhika' the Indian market in the subcontinent will open up.

And if you liked the Kenneth Salick original but found its sadness in love too haunting, try the video created by two Indo-Caribbean youth (clearly living in Canada). They've decided to highlight the tragicomedy of love.
