Kevin & Robin

Kevin & Robin are based in Kingston, Jamaica, W.I.

The original inspirational Dub Poets of the 20th Century, Kevin and Robin have matured significantly since their impetuous first days on the stage, pelting their heartfelt biblical truths at  enthusiastic audiences.

Their first recording, Live in Barbados, was met with such acclaim that they immediately went into studio to complete a follow-up album, Undying Faith. Replete with pulsing Caribbean rhythms and their lilting Jamaican dialect, the listener is enthralled by a fascinating combination of delicate vocal harmonies and starkly modulated speech. Maturity has only enhanced the enchanting cadence of their rhythmical dialogue and piercing lyrical truth-telling.

"Who Cares" is a plaintive lament on the plight of the disenfranchised and neglected. Though the subject matter is distressing, the musical vehicle is anything but!

Peace, a long-time popular performance number from Kevin & Robin, has been further bedecked with unexpected intermittent operatic background vocals.

It is a wonderful melee supporting Kevin & Robin's chant for Peace!
