The Caribbean Bonnie and Clyde


The Caribbean Bonnie and Clyde

The Curaçaoan rapper/singer ORI has struck gold with the release of this Kizomba gem poised to take the Dutch Caribbean community both in the Netherlands and the Caribbean by storm.

The song is about a recurring topic in his music which is love. With the enchantingly smooth melody provided by Jespybeats and ORI’s lyric yet emotionally-charged vocals along with the contemplative content, the song is a winner from beginning to end.

The accompanying videoclip is something of a Bonny and Clyde tale with a somewhat happy ending and a non-linear chronology as the characters are still alive at the end and the video begins with the events that occur right before the conclusion.

The subsequent images include events that took place leading up to the standoff, such as the smitten couple having a cheery conversation on the phone and cutting a rug of Kizomba along the water, painting the image of how this unbreakable bond was forged.

As they lay prostrate on the floor with the police hovering over them, she gives him a wink and it is almost as if she’s winking at us from the bubble of the song. As if she is saying “You’re welcome”.

Gerson Eleonora (1987) has a passion for writing, whether it be short stories, poems or the biographies, reviews and music articles displayed here on the site. He is an aficionado of everything Caribbean, it’s almost as if salt water runs through his veins.
