Fantastic reviews in Caribbean Beat

In the latest issue of Caribbean Beat, Shivanee Ramlochan reviews You Have You Father Hard Head, The RepentersThe Bone Readers, The Gymnast and Other Positions and Wife.

For those too long fed on routine diets of sun, sand, and sea settings, The Repenters takes the reader through a back-alley investigation of what makes Trinidadians, orphans, and all reckless survivors tick. (Find out more)
