Here I GO baby, waves crashing on my face Here are the tales of the Caribbean MON Give thanks, forget about the troubled times Give thanks, cause the sun will always shine Aquí vamos compadres, Viajando con mi guitarra en medio de las olas... vengo con mi guitarra en medio de las olas, desde el corazón del Caribe YO, traigo un montón de historias, vamos a olvidarnos de una vez de todos nuestros problemas, enciende la llama mi amor, bienvenida sea su buena vibración… Bendita sea la hora que nos juntemos otra vez! Salut les gars, j’arrive, des caraïbes avec ma guitare, Emergeant des vagues, avec toutes ces histoires a vous raconter Amigo, autour des flammes oublions tous nos problèmes Vamos a vivre, tous les rêves caribéens. On va vivre, tous les rêves caribéens Oh Oh Oh Oh Tales of the Caribbean (4)

Mon cœur fou j'adore me promener dans les rues PARISIENNES quand tout le monde dort, tranquillement je prends mon vélo et je me sens libre comme l'air et je suis heureux, j'adore les soirées dans la ville bohème, mon cœur fou ça n'est pas une nuit comme les autres Je vais écouter toutes tes histoires Je vais te montrer ma Ville, on va peut-être fumer un pétard en regardant les lumières et je suis heureux, j'adore les soirées dans la ville bohème, mon cœur fou Ça c'est un sentiment extraordinaire qu'on se RETROUVE tous ensemble Mon cœur fou Et notre langue est la musique On ne connaît plus de frontières Mon cœur fou et je suis heureux, j'adore les soirées dans la ville bohème, mon cœur fou Je me fiche du futur Je vais vivre cette journée comme si c'était… si c'était la dernière ... j'adore me promener dans les rues PARISIENNES, Quand tout le monde dort, mon cœur fou

Palmera 03:18
Palmera Subite a la Palmera bájame los cocos Agua deliciosa, agua tropical, el secreto de la eterna juventud, si la fiesta estuvo buena y se para la cabeza, toma directo del coco, te cura todas las penas... Porque aquí no me muero de la sed, con el agua de pipa ya tengo para beber, temprano en la mañana antes del cafecito, que bien que le cae a mi alma estoy viendo el amanecer, este sol bravisimo que calienta cada día, rayos ultravioleta que nos queman la piel... Cuando el señor kowalsky regresa de surfear, el se toma un par de pipas para refrescar Un, dos, tres aquí va todo al revés , un, dos, tres a quién le creo esta vez ? Subite a la Palmera bájame los cocos ( 8 )

Lizzie 03:37
Lizzie In 1872 the Lizzie left Jamaica, she sailed from Kingston to land in Costa Rica Lizzie was the first ship, she brought one hundred twenty three Jamaicans to build the railroad. Lizzie uhhhhh, Lizzie uhhhhh, Oh mother Lizzie, take me to the land of my dreams, don't let me drowned here, Oh mother Lizzie... carry on, carry on, carry on. Can you imagine Lizzie? Sailing through the Caribbean sea Towards the rich coast to build a railroad, making history Lizzie uhhhhh, Lizzie uhhhhh, Oh mother Lizzie, take me to the land of my dreams, don't let me drowned here, Oh mother Lizzie... carry on, carry on, carry on. In the jungle, in the middle of the jungle, you see the men working for a better future, they carry nothing but HOPE. Lizzie uhhhhh, Lizzie uhhhhh, Lizzie was the first ship she brought, One hundred twenty three Jamaicans to build the railroad.

Unity 03:42
Unity I am an honest man Never killed nobody Never killed no animal Never did a bad thing But one day Some policemen crossed my way Stopped me for no reason And then they took me in I always tried to fight for freedom Now I barely see the light of day Still I’d like to sing to all the people of the world That part of me will never fade away Never stop believing That we can live In freedom, peace and unity Never stop believing Let the revolution start today I always lived a beggar’s life But with many friends that I call mine They’re still around me when I need them They take care of me So I begin to dream But when I think of the world beyond these walls You can hear me sing this song to you Never stop to believe That we can live In freedom, peace and unity Never stop to believe Let the revolution start today We never stop to believe That we can live In freedom, peace and unity We never stop to believe Let the revolution start today uhhhh uhhhhh We can liiiiveeeeeee in Unity …. The only thing I‘m dreaming of

Toda la Noche Cada vez que me alisto para salir, la noche es joven yo no me quedo aquí, vamos mi amor cualquier cosa puede pasar, Juntos devoraremos a esta ciudad Cae la noche, el cielo tiene un millón de estrellas, Vámonos juntos a cada una ellas, En esta selva tropical, como pican los mosquitos Nena, es una buena señal de que estamos vimos Bajo el sol, bajo la lluvia Bailamos bajo el sol o bajo la lluvia Toda la noche tocaré para tí…. Quiero vivir en una verano que sea eterno, La vida hay que surfearla, PURA VIDA es mi sentimiento Yo se que el destino nos tiene preparado algo especial, Nena te invito a mi casita junto al mar Bajo el sol, bajo la lluvia Bailamos bajo el sol o bajo la lluvia Toda la noche tocaré para tí…. Bailando bajo el sol o bajo la lluvia, Nos volvemos locos toda la noche (3) Bailando bajo el sol o bajo la lluvia, Toda la noche tocaré para tí...

Jack's Hill 03:43
Jack’s Hill I remember the wood yellow chair I used to sit in Jack’s Hill Baby I miss you here with me Beautiful mountains… I’m searching for my spot Between the banana trees I can see Kingston from here. Oh Jack’s Hill… there’s magic around here Oh Jack’s Hill… this energy feeds my inspiration Oh Jack’s Hill… that’s right breda, I feel like home Oh Jack’s Hill… baby take me back to Jamaica “Life is a beautiful dream…” Buddha said. Someone told me, “Hey Johnny! Johnny be good (2) tonight!” Welcome to the cool hills of Jack’s Hill... Sound systems in the streets, I’m going down to Barbican Between the banana trees, I can see Kingston from here.

¿A dónde vas? Lately I’ve got the impression That everyone around me is mad So if you meet someone on the street He’s gonna treat you like that If you’re feeling lonely If you think you got no home Stop walking around All around on your own ¿A dónde vas? Ven aquí Really it’s not that so bad But one should not be naïve Strange things gonna happen When people thinks life's not fair We’re not gonna feel the same We never change our minds And this is why I want you to know That you’re welcome any time ¿A dónde vas? Ven aquí So if you’re feeling lonely If you think you got no home Stop walking around All around on your own ¿A dónde vas? Ven aquí

Breda Killing Breda Breda! What are we doing to ourselves? Breda! What are we doing to our planet? They don’t want to listen, we can’t be pessimistic As far as the I eye can see, we can’t ignore this Makes me sad to say, we have to deal with it…. Breda Killing Breda, Breda why them killing breda? Breda! What are we doing to our oceans? Breda! What are we doing to our home? I support no ARMY, we need free education So go along remove your weapons Let us LOVE, overstand deception. Breda Killing Breda, Breda why them killing breda? Breda! What YOU gonna do? Breda! What WE gonna do? I’m sure one day we shall see The good inside of every human being ONE LOVE, Peace and harmony Breda Killing Breda, Breda why them killing breda?

Sunset Awaits Leaving the dirty city, I’m on the road, I’m looking forward to connect with my own To create, to breathe, searching melodies The sky turns orange another journey is complete. Oh! Oh! Oh! Whatever we go the Sunset awaits over the ocean waves. Boarding this plane, I’m ready to fly, I’m exited to see all that new land To discover to swing into one gigantic sea I’m amazed, I’ll seat here the sun dance will begin. This is natural connection going through my veins Oh! Oh! Oh! Whatever we go Sunset awaits over the ocean waves. I feel good, This planet is too small, I feel good, I’ll be there, I feel good, we’re the same anywhere, I feel good, far away when the sunset awaits.

Costa Rican-born, Paris-based musician Mr. Kowalsky presents his fourth album: “Everybody Nice!”

PARIS, FRANCE - Set for release on December 4, 2020 is "Everybody Nice," recorded in studios in Los Angeles, Boston, Paris, and Kingston, Jamaica, and featuring guest musicians such as Greg Lee (Hepcat), Vin Gordon (Skatalites, Wailers, Studio One session musician), Jamaica’s Jamila Falak, and Boston’s The Doped Up Dollies.

“Everybody Nice” is the follow-up to 2015’s “Surf Rock Reggae,” sharing its ska and reggae influences, notes of rocksteady, lovers rock, and reggae roots, and its touches of surf and Latin music, while featuring an expanded creative team and even more confidence in its musical blend. The twelve songs are in English, Spanish, and French, and are loaded with the “pura vida” motto and positive vibes Mr. Kowalsky brings with him everywhere.

Mr. Kowalsky said of the guest musicians: “I’m so thankful to all of them for giving my songs their own very special and unique feeling - Greg and his characteristic deep voice is the special hot sauce in ‘California to Kingston’; Vin and his magical trombone gave ‘Jack’s Hill’ the vintage sound of the 60’s that I was looking for; Jamila was a great surprise and with her powerful voice she is the sweet complement ‘Breda Killing Breda’ needed; and The Doped up Dollies gave just the right chorus and beautiful vocal textures to ‘Rude Boys and Girls.’ It was spectacular to work with them!”

The album took four years from first demos to completed masters and involved other creative team members from the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica to LA to Germany.

“Going to studios and coordinating with musicians in different countries was a great experience, but a logistical challenge,” said Mr. Kowalsky, “and I’m sure that without the mystical vibes and the alignment of the planets on our side, it would have never happened! I give thanks to the amazing crew of engineers, musicians and friends who helped me realize this new album. I’m more than happy about the resulting record and what we have achieved.”

In 2019 and early 2020, Mr. Kowalsky released the album’s first three singles and music videos: “California to Kingston,” “Palmera,” and “Jack’s Hill.”
