Chutney-soca, chutney-soca / Chutney-soca from
Trinidad to Goa
I drop in from India / From far far away
I hear this new rhythm / Making Trinidad sway.
The beat drive me crazy / The beat drive me wild
The beat give me fever / I wanna take it home.
—Remo Fernandes (lyrics for collaborative song
with Rikki Jai)
A rhythm from the islands / A rhythm from my soul
A rhythm ﬁlled with ﬁre / To warm up your soul.
The spirit of a people who came from India
With African vibrations call it chutney-soca.
—Rikki Jai (lyrics for collaborative song with Remo
