Soca music comes from the reggae and calypso traditions in Jamaica. Prince Jabba experienced culture shock when he came here 15 years ago, but his music shows how he and his musical group have kept the joy of the Caribbean sun despite Minnesota’s cold. Make a list of things that bring you joy.
Cut out the shape of something which makes you happy and then think of an interesting way to write the words from your list on it. Use fun fonts on the computer, use color, or draw letters that reflect the words. Hang it in your locker or put it in a notebook where it’ll cheer you up and you’ll remember Socaholix.
