Kya Publishing Highlights CARIBBEAN WOMEN IN MUSIC with DJ Majesty Soca/Reggae Mix and Article

TORONTO, ONT (March 2018) - Counting down to International Woman's Day this month (March 8), Toronto-based publishing and communications company Kya Publishing has just released a tribute article and musical mix in celebration of Caribbean Women in Music.

Inspired by new female artists on the soca and reggae music scene and their energetic appearances during Trinidad's Carnival season, Jamaican singer Shenseea and Trinidadian songstress Nailah Blackman are highlighted as a force to continue the vibrant legacy of women in Caribbean music. Along with local Toronto recording artists, and a brilliant list of contributions, the quick 30-minute mix is a jump start to a month of celebration and decades of legacy.

"Music is the driving force behind everything we do at Kya Publishing," said founder Stacey Marie Robinson. "We've been working with DJ Majesty to help us curate the perfect sound for our projects, to create an energetic environment at our events, and to interpret what we do with literature...through music."

DJ Majesty, a native of Toronto with Bajan roots, has been a versatile expert in mixing and producing urban vibes in the city for over fifteen years. A force on the promotional entertainment team of Jus Blaize, he is deeply connected to the music and energy of the city as well as the Caribbean culture at large.

"Majesty is the official DJ of our organization, and understands the connection between what we listen do and what we write as urban communicators," said Robinson. "This mix is a wonderful tribute to reggae and soca music, and the best way we know how to pay our respects to the ladies who fill our airspace with their talents."

The mix can be heard via Kya Publishing's Soundcloud page, along with other mixes created by DJ Majesty over the years to support Kya Publishing's writing projects and events.

The tribute article (including a featured list of 101 female Caribbean recording artists) is now posted on Kya Publishing's "Urban Toronto Tales" blog.

Along with curating urban music, Kya Publishing also exclusively sells Canadian Urban Fiction novels, and offers communication and publishing services to the urban cultural community. This year they will host their 5th annual Toronto Urban Book Expo (an urban book fair) during Toronto's Caribbean Carnival weekend: Friday, August 3, 2018 at the Toronto Public Library's Parkdale Branch from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

"We love the culture!" said Robinson. "The books, the music, the performances, the history...everything. This mix and tribute article are just a small token of thanks to the women in the Caribbean music industry who inspire us every day."
