    They are damn plagiarizers... tiefin Bollywood and Classical songs and "chunes" ...they glorify rum



    Degrading rum songs Tuesday, February 15 2011

    THE EDITOR: It is instructive that a so-called chutney icon could mention in the media that despite his promise not to sing a “rum” song this year, his fans want it and his fans are everything.
    Who are these fans, pray tell? Not I nor the many others like myself who loathe this stereotype of drunkards in these songs. This degrading labelling of a people is not only prevalent in the songs of other “icons” but in a popular local soap which touts rum, “commess “ and “horning” as its signature patterns of behaviour among its characters.

    With those who love to identify with such a stereotype, I can have no quarrel, for it is their right to indulge in such self-contempt, as much as it is the right of the many who have become virtually addicted to the now pervasive and sexually explicit “bend over and wine.” Such is high culture to which we should never object!

    But I do have a quarrel when such songs and such images are foisted upon us and our children in the media, for as the guardian of the people’s interests, the media should never discriminate against its children. These songs and images are better left in the dancehalls for which they were created and let the participants wallow at their will.

    Chutney singers stealing melodies

    Published: Mon, 2011-02-14 20:59

    In recent times, the uniquely Trinidadian chutney music has become something to be less than proud off. The poverty of lyrical content has already been dissected by many, but a disturbing trend recently is the lack of original melody. Today, artistes string words to the melodies of popular film songs coming out of India and pass this out to a public which does not care to be short-changed. No doubt it is an easy way to reach the top of the music charts, but what can these artistes claim as theirs when people compliment the creativity of T&T?

    I am sure these singers and writers have talent, but they are doing an injustice to it and by extension to the people who toiled to pass the art form to them and to the country. I invoke the conscience of these artistes and call on the National Council for Indian Culture and the promoters of the Chutney Soca competition to ensure that in future competitions, songs with lifted melodies are disqualified automatically.
