The energetic frontman of the band Karma has also gained serious momentum heading into the 2012 season with the release of his three latest tracks “Doh Want Meh Go”, “Horning Meh” and “Granny”.

Still riding high on the success of previous hits such as “Cya Come”, “Dularie Nanny” and the ever popular “Ah Drinka”, the former Chutney Soca Monarch has once again collaborated with famed producer Big Rich as well as young hit-maker 1st Klase to create these new Carnival 2012 smashes. These latest releases which have already been igniting airwaves and receiving positive attention on major entertainment websites and social media are on their way to becoming party anthems for the music loving masses.

Produced by Big Rich, the infectious “Doh Want Meh Go” puts a fun, light-hearted twist on the marriage scenario while the groovy “Horning Meh” deals with the issue of infidelity in relationships. The dance-infused, power-chutney “Granny” was produced by 1st Klase and is set to be a true crowd pleaser during Karma’s live performances.

Ravi B shared that in anticipation of 2012 he wanted to concentrate on creating high quality music which focussed on topics to which everybody (both men and women) could relate. He plans to highlight everyday life subject matters through his music rather than the alcohol-centric themes of past tunes.
