As the journey to Soca’s global acceptance continues, every little bit of positive energy shared with the artistes who fly the flag of T&T high, is to be welcomed and enjoyed. Such was the case today when US television powerhouse, BET highlighted an awesome 55th Independence Day greeting to the island nation of Trinidad ad Tobago, from none other than the Vikings, Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons.
The husband and wife duo
are in New York where they were carded to take over BET’s snapchat profile, earlier. Tonight, Bunji will be the headline performer at a music series called “Today At Apple” that’s going down in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 8pm. He had been sharing the details of the event for the past few days, telling fans in New York that they’d need to sign up online for the event to gain access. In an Instagram post a while ago, Garlin explained that the venue would not allow for any additional sign ups, as it was filled to capacity.
Today, Trinidad and Tobago celebrates 55 years of Independence. The journey to global acceptance of the authentic cultural attributes of this nation, continues to be peddled by the men and women of culture, who fly the flag high. Bunji Garlin is certainly one of these people- likewise, his wife and support system, Fay Ann Lyons.
We wait now with bated breath for their next step on this amazing journey to the top.
