Nature island of Dominica suffers ‘demonic’ invasion

[Helena Perez, Dominica News Contributor]

DominicaCentral.com: Following incidents at schools in the Caribbean island of Dominica where normally well-behaved children have erupted into violent and bizarre behaviour, Dominicans are fearing that a satanic attack has been launched on the island’s school system.

There was yet another strange happening during the middle of last week at a school in the north of the island when three students were reported to have displayed paranormal behaviour.  Fear and panic gripped the school in the town of Portsmouth when three girls began to scream without any apparent reason and commenced ransacking their classrooms. Teachers and students had run from the school in fear during the incident which had brought the entire school to a standstill.

In March this year at a school in the island’s capital, Roseau, more or less the same thing happened and the children involved had been submitted for psychiatric evaluation.  Past years have also witnessed similar events with some saying that the children has spoken in ‘tongues’ at the incidents.

Local doctors are describing the events as being due to ‘mass hysteria‘. However, residents are saying that the patterns of behaviour specifically show some form of demonic possession.

Steaming hot ‘Cadence- lypso’ and the rise of a pop music legend

Julie Mourillon is the creator of the new sound craze, Cadence-lypso, which is igniting the Caribbean, French and niche European music scenes. Cadence-lypso is a  fusion of Dominican and Caribbean/ Latino rhythms and has totally revolutionized the music scene in its genre and is now the main dance music of Dominica, Martinique, Guadeloupe and other French Creole Caribbean islands.

Born and raised in the Caribbean island of Dominica, Julie started getting involved in music very early in life playing with top Dominican bands of the early seventies and quickly became one of the top guitarists on the island. In 1973, he teamed up with several Dominican musician friends and moved to the neighbouring French island of Guadeloupe where they created the Group EXILE ONE and pioneered Cadence-lypso.

In 1975, Julie moved to Paris with his EXILE ONE colleagues. That same year he recorded his first solo album ‘Rock Your Bones’. The hit track ‘Pays a Moin’ shot up to number one in Dominica and other Caribbean islands. A number of musical experiences followed including the making of his own band ‘Emphasis’ and later, teaming up with some of his old colleagues giving birth to the group ”Roots of Exile”. Together, they launched a new beat dubbed Island Boogie, a fusion of cadence- lypso and North American funk and soul and toured Africa and Europe. In 1984, Julie went truly solo as a main act and since then has released 15 albums including 2 reggae albums, unleashing hits such as Aniece, Ecoutez, Piman Cho, Julianna, Trodding On, Jump Up Party, Keep the Feeling and Need U2Nite. In the following years, Julie toured Africa, Europe, the  USA, the Caribbean and the Pacific. Very much in demand as a session musician he has worked with top rap and reggae acts in Paris and Africa including Alpha Blondy as well as with top Jamaican musicians such as Cat and Rugs of Third World and more recently, superstar Jimmy Cliff.

Now, Julie’s music is being distributed by Jet Star Music, a worldwide record distribution company based in London.  ‘Jump Up Party’ is the newest offering of Julie Mourillon. It demonstrates his versatility as a composer, writer and singer. As its name suggests, it is a party album with great ambience and Julie is dishing out hot spicy Caribbean music: soca, bouyon, cadence-lypso and merengue.

Julie’s new album is scheduled for release in spring 2011 and a preview can be heard on http://www.myspace.com/juliemourillon. He is planning a tour of Russia and the Baltics scheduled for later on this year.
