After almost three years of absence, Bahamian entertainer Kirkland “KB” Body has returned to the studio to finish his new album, which will be released shortly.
While fans were waiting for the latest music, Body said his single “Da Mus Cum Back” from the album had fallen and exploded on radio stations across the country.
He said the “Da Mus Comeback” message was aimed at the Grand Bahamans, especially after surviving Hurricane Dorian and the current COVID-19.
“Now I’m in the studio, finishing the material … the cover artwork is all done, so it’s just a matter of tweaking everything,” says Body.
“But we have released’Mus Come Back’, which is supported by radio stations.”
This is Body’s first album since 2018, when he released a 12-track CD titled “Jonestown, Eight Mile Rock”, a homage to the village he grew up in.
When asked for the title of the new album, Body said, “No, no. It remains a mystery until release.”
Body, who returned to Grand Bahama to complete a 10-track album, said: Grand Bahama News New music was in the works before Hurricane Dorian in September 2019.
“Hurricane Dorian is here, [and] Immediately after that, we will do a COVID and put a “gourd” on everything, “said the full-time entertainer. “But it gave me a lot of time to work, a lot of one person, a lot of time to ponder, write, and be lonely.”
Solitude has made the body more creative and allowed him to grow with the crafts he loves.
“I’m doing a lot of different things on this album … going back to some old KB styles and mixing some old and new,” Bodie said.
“That’s what Da Mus Cum Back is doing, regaining the feel and sound of an old KB, making it interesting, having its rakes and scrapes, and making sure you’re a Bahamian.
“Your goal as an artist should be growth, so I’m still criticizing when old KBs that include songs like” All the Meat “and” Jus Cause She Fat “take it to another level. I received it. But many still wanted that old KB, the sound of the time. So I told him to take it home. “
Born in New Providence, Body wasn’t interested in music while growing up at Eight Mile Rock. It wasn’t until he was a teenager that his childhood friend Sid Roll approached him about starting a band.
The two joined Dave Cooper and George Delancy, and the four started an “egotrip” band.
They all decided to quit their jobs and take on the music business, appearing in everything they could think of, including family island regatta and weddings.
Their repertoire consisted primarily of rock, R & B, and small Bahamian music. The band continued to win song contests early in their careers and began recording at GBI Recording Studio under the supervision of Frank Penn.
The band stopped it in the late 80’s and Bodie went solo.
It was challenging for years, but said the body remained focused, focused on the technique, and took him to today’s place without giving up.
“Our music is identified by three sounds: rake’n’scrap, john canoe, and goombay. The sound of this album is the traditional cat island rake’n’ scrape that speaks to our culture. I wanted to make it sound. I represent this country. What I draw and what other artists draw represent who we are as people. “
Body came back to the studio and said he was excited.
“I don’t ask anyone for my music,” he said.
“I’m writing my music, and it’s here. If I love what I do and have to start over, I’ll do the same. What I think is important I will fight as well because I believe we are fighting for our future generations, our heritage.
“I think we are good people. We have been confused by many foreign influences, but basically we are very good people and that is what I fight for, its culture. I think.”
