It has been Confirmed !! One of the Most Legendary Caribbean Bands in history are REUNITING. The Antiguan Band Burning Flames, which is considered by most as the pioneers of what many term as “Small Island” music will be re-uniting come this summer for the Annual Antigua Carnival celebrations.
The Band which comprised brother Onyan, Oukngo, Krokuss and cousin Foxx burst on the seen in the early 80’s with massive hits like Stylee Tight and Iron Band. Their phenomenal success was unlike anything any soca band had experienced before. Just as epic as their success was their split. Seemigly irreconcilable difference between brother Oukgo and Onyan forced what can only be describes as an EPIC break up which resulted in Oukngo forming his own Red Hot Flames and Onyan continuing to carry the torch as Burning Flames. Although both continued to be successful in their separated entities neither have been able to match the tremendous success they achived as a unit Burning Flames. Fans have been salivating and waiting patiently for the reunion which some say was inevitable while others had proclaimed impossible.
According to sources the band is in fact reuniting with the 4 original members namely Onyan, Oukngo, Krokuss and Foxx. July 17th has been set as the date to get our first glimpse of the FANTASTIC FOUR- The Burning Flames Reunited.
