Nothing compares to this island’s beauty
So why don’t you come swim with me around Love City
I love those lyrics from from Exodus’ Rhythm Of Life song. Exodus is a USVI reggae artist that was born on St. Croix, lived on St. Thomas and now calls St. John home.
The music video below is shows the beauty above and below the waves of the USVI. It’s almost as if the fish and sea fans are dancing along to the reggae beats. Exodus knows he lives in a Caribbean paradise and the lyrics to this song reflect that love.
Rhythm of Live – Angel “Exodus” Bolques
Video produced and directed by E. Franklin Tulloch.
Influenced by people such as Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Haile Selassie, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, and Tupac Shakur, Exodus brings a voice that convincingly conveys past and present tribulations, contemporary triumphs, and future aspirations. Exodus’ music consists of smooth, conscious vibes and deep-raspy, cool toned vocals which give him a distinct identity amid other reggae artists from the Virgin Islands. Focused on positive thinking, positive living, and love, his rootical chanting style is based on the foundations, beliefs, morals and values of the Rastafarian culture. The music he brings forth is meant to provide upliftment to his listeners, and encourage them to stay positive and stand strong against the negative obstacles found in our societies. It is Cultural, Spiritual, Political, and Soulful music!
Exodus (born Angel Luis Bolques Jr.) is a conscious, roots, reggae, dancehall musician from the Virgin Islands. Exodus has also recorded calypso and reggaeton songs, showcasing his musical versatility and diverse background. Born in St. Croix, raised in St. John, and having spent years living on St. Thomas, Exodus represents all of the US Virgin Islands in both his culture and his music.
To date, Exodus has released material in the Virgin Islands, Atlanta, and the Netherlands with OTM Studios, Rude Lyfe Entertainment, IMS Music Group, Riddim City Sounds, Zion Hill Music, and RedGold Greene Project.
This year, after the release of the Live Right compilation mix-tape with the mega-hit “Live Right” and the critically acclaimed “Babylon Bruk Down Meh Door,” Exodus’ musical career skyrocketed, landing him #1 on the Reverbnation Reggae Chart for the Virgin Islands.
Exodus is rapidly becoming one of the Virgin Islands newest and brightest conscious reggae artists. His music has resonated with fans regardless of racial, cultural or socio-economic backgrounds, showing the musical diversity and talent of this up and coming artist. All audiences will certainly enjoy the positive, thought-provoking, and inspirational music of Exodus “The Movement.”
“My musical efforts are not to gain, but to share and go through the boundaries and borders of separation and to be heard by all people. The title, So it Begins relates to me as a musician and to my fans as listeners. Only Time Will Tell reflects the struggle of accomplishing such a mission. My intentions are to make quality music to satisfy musical and spiritual hunger of everyone that relates to it. My goal is to bring us closer today than yesterday, to live as one.”
