William Anthony sings songs in Papiamento written by leading Antillian composers mainly from the 1960s and before. These songs are now equipped with a fresh and contemporary sound. Enjoy the hot and juicy Antillian rhythm.

Simadan on Bonaire has three traditional songs: Dan Simadan, Remailo, and Belua, all of which are sung in call-and-response form.
