Just about 17 miles long and 3 miles wide, Anguilla in the Caribbean is worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of neighboring St. Martin. If you choose not to “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” for 8.4 miles across the Anguilla Channel from the popular French capital city of Marigot to Anguilla’s pristine port of Blowing Point, you can climb aboard the ferry which shuttles islanders and visitors alike. Designed to be sung on rounds with one group or person singing the first line followed by the next person or group in line, DADDY ROOTS needs no crew steering the boat with his steady pace delivering line after line on this musical voyage.
Formerly a British colony and briefly united with St. Kitts and Nevis in 1967, Anguilla is the northernmost island of the Leeward Islands in the West Indies. Now a self-governing dependency of the UK, Anguilla is home to many UK nationals fed up with the rain and snow. With the UK losing its once powerful grip on the island and talks of Anguillans seeking independence from British control, it is most appropriate that “London Bridge is Falling Down”—a traditional nursery rhyme and singing game—be included in the Rainbow Kids collection.
Protector of animals and the environment in addition to being a vegetarian DADDY ROOTS has nothing but love for the cat, dog, cow and moon in “Hey Diddle Diddle".
With this album, DADDY ROOTS shares his laughter and joy with all those who open their hearts and ears to the sweet Caribbean beat. By Roberto Angotti
