Last weekend in Barbados was a time of virtual celebration for the arts community. Mahalia is the lead vocalist in Barbados’ favorite band, 2 Mile Hill. Her platform, Mahalia’s Corner, has ingrained itself into the local music scene, with amazing features from top entertainers in Barbados and an open mic segment which is now notorious for introducing new talent. She is also an author and has recently released another contribution to the culture with “Bajanisms” a handbook for navigating the Bajan language. She was the only female artist to win across genres this year at The Gine On Awards.

And that’s exactly what their recently-released collaboration is doing. “Joy”, which was released on December 7, is a groovy, reggae-infused track with a distinctly Caribbean vibe. At the end of what has been an incredibly challenging year, its release could not be timelier.
Written by lead vocalist Mahalia and produced by keyboardist André “Black Man Chant” Clarke, the official video is on 2 Mile Hill’s YouTube channel. “Big Love came about from a growing desire to connect with my love for my island and its people, and it became an opportunity to bring that authentic Bajan sound to the music. https://www.nationnews.com/2020/11/28/2-mile-hill-shows-love-barbados/
2 Mile Hill is bringing the love to Bajans this November. The Bajan pop music group has released a brand new song meant to push Bajan spirits high and show their love of 'Bimshire' to the world.
