Emotional Honesty and Musical Simplicity: Interview w/ Musician Charles Emanuel

"I’ve always loved some of the instrumentation that St. Kitt’s has…there’s this thing called, like, a string band where it’s... ukeleles, and guitars and, um, a fife...the musicality and also the honesty of lyrics because we also perform a genre called Calypso…So I always feel like I want to incorporate that in my music in terms of being honest and saying things or talking about things that are maybe not too comfortable but need to be said." --Charles Emanuel
