““Caribbean is the flavor,with a spiritual message included hear. The bass is rolling and thick. I love the wonderful melodious voices in the background :"We are the same on the inside." is the lyric sung by a lead singer and backup vocals, steel guitar and drummer.The whole thing makes me want to dance and it's thought-provoking also.It's a lovely track that needs promotion. Everyone sounds professional and the message is that money isn't as important as humanity.That's a worthy ethic, in my opinion.””

Q: I like your music Peter, the vibe and lyrical content is potent. love the melodies as well. Whats your motivation? what inspired you to do this conscious music, uplifting music? And the steel pan?
A: Thank You for your compliments, i was inspired at an early age (12-13) when i first heard the sound of Bob Marley's band and read about his life.. Since then i've drummed for nearly every style of music but always found my self in love with the sound, beat, and feeling the spirit of the Carribean Islands. I look at every oppurtunity to share music with people as a blessing, and so i have been blessed to share music with so many great and inspiring musicians, and people from all walks of life especially Dancers,Priest's, Healer's, Singer's, Preacher's, Percussionists, and Steel Panist's..So alot of my inspiration comes from the love that they and the universe, has had for Music. Thank You very much for your question and for your love and dedication to the music.. Blessings, Peter Barr
