What is the name of your mixtape?

The name of my playlist is Platanos y Frijoles. It represents a common sound shared across the Latin, Carribean, and African cultures. Reggae is the underlying theme for most the music in the playlist.

What was the inspiration in making your playlist?

My inspiration for making this playlist was the fact that I LOVE ALL MUSIC! Reggae is one of my favorites sounds, so to be able to show the world that even in music we are all similar yet different is something we as Humans need to learn.

Are you a creative person?

I am. I enjoy creating, producing, and listening to music. I find myself creating all kinds of content whether I’m in my studio laying down a heavy bass line or shooting video and photo, I’m always learning and finding out new ways to create music, graphics, everything! Search for Will Tupou in your favorite music streaming platform and give it a listen.

What keeps you creative?

That is kind of a hard question to answer, but I guess, life is what keeps me creative. I find myself being the most creative when I’m not worried about creating and that is usually when I’m with my wife and kids. With ability to have a studio in my pocket, I can quickly record or play any melody that I have in my head or quickly draw up a sketch for a design that I have in my head. Knowing I can do that, helps keep me creative.

What keeps you moving?

My love that I have for my wife and kids along with the passion that I have for my music and art. What more can I ask for to help me live my best life?! I do feel that I am blessed with a lot of life and that to me is more than enough to sustain and keep me moving.
