Ken Marlon Charles, better known as KMC, has broken the cultural barrier and landed a punch in NY. Coming from humble beginnings KMC found it was not easy breaking into the music industry but he would not give it up. At a young age he took up the drums then the keyboard with no formal training. KMC's determination was evident as he took every opportunity to catch local bands in his native Trinidad.
The music of his land was Soca but Dancehall was what he picked up first. The dancehall genre originated in Jamaica but spread to many of the islands of the Caribbean. KMC would soon play with many musicians and release sixteen of his own records. His first set of albums were in the dancehall genre but by1997 he switched to the music of his country, Soca

Ken Marlon Charles, better known as KMC has taken on this mission and put into high gear. He is a native of Trinidad, the tropical island in the Caribbean that is known for its Soca music but Dancehall is the music that first caught his ear. He first took up the drums then the keyboards teaching him-self how to play both at a young age.

Even when bands finished their sets and the show was over he would sneak in and jam on a drum set.
