It’s December, and it’s that time of year when we celebrate Christmas on Oldies Sunday! Today we start off the month Parang style with Trini legend Kenny J’s “De Paint Brush“! Handling the production by himself (Kenny Joseph), the track was released in 1993 through the Crosby’s label. The song highlights a holiday tradition in the Caribbean where the household goes through some cleaning in order to accommodate friends and family, and welcome the Christmas Spirit. Reaching for his Paint Brush, Kenny J looks forward to giving various parts of the house a fresh coat of paint. Kenny is also joined by Bobby who adds some lyrics throughout the song to give it more vibes.
For those new to Parang, this is usually a collection of popular folk songs or traditional songs that reflect the Christmas season and its meaning (similiar to Christmas Carols). It originated in Venezuela and Trinidad & Tobago, and are usually performed by Parranderos, or some of your favourite Artists.
We hope we’ve helped in starting your Christmas season off in a great way! Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
