Biography

Soca has never been so cool! Combat boots, baggy attire, brightly colored bandanas adorning funky dreads and coloured ‘fros; krosfyah epitomizes coolness. Combined with infectious melodies, high-energy performances and pulsating rhythms that speak a language only one’s hips comprehend, krosfyah has reinvented soca as we know it.

For the past fifteen years, krosfyah has been touring the world inducing fans across three continents into a soca frenzy! Yet despite the group’s sophomore CD’s (Ultimate Party - Pump Me Up) sales (totaling over 300,000 units to date without the assistance of a major label), the guys remain humble. As Edwin Yearwood, principal songwriter for krosfyah indicates, “We are just a bunch of island guys who love to play music.” And play music is exactly what they do. Whether entertaining 20 or 20,000, krosfyah always delivers an energized performance!

The evolution of krosfyah from playing covers for tourists on the Barbados hotel circuit to touring the world and performing their original music for dignitaries like Nelson Mandela occurred over a span of seven years. While few critics ever doubted the potential of krosfyah, most never imagined this level of success, in such a short space of time.

In 1994, krosfyah released their debut album, Ultimate Party, which propelled the group from obscurity to the most popular soca band on the island of Barbados and won them the coveted “Band of the Year” title.

In 1995, the group released Ultimate Party-Pump Me Up.

    Get ready for some "Soca Fusion" for 2009. Tricia Hamilton's groovy soca hit for Carnival 2009 has it all: A mix of Indian, African, Middle Eastern, Hip Hop, and Dance Grooves and a ton of other influences makes this a cross over hit.
