There is nobody more proud of their nationality than island people. No matter where they go abroad, island people are always quick to remind everyone around them where their navel string is buried. It is this fierce pride that created what can quite possibly be the universal national anthem for Caribbean people.
“This Island (Is Mine)” is Skinny Fabulous’ heartfelt confession and celebration of his immense love for his homeland, St. Vincent & the Grenadines. He is backed by Rodney Small, one of SVG’s top pan players, who soulfully belts out his own love on pan. The result is a ballad orchestrated so sweetly under the hands of producer, Kubiyashi, that it immediately inspires feelings of national pride in islanders and in foreigners, a longing to visit sandy shores.
