Tobago’s songstress Adana Roberts says she is grateful for the staging of Tobago’s first Carnival. Her comment comes on the heels of the island’s conclusion of their first festival staging last weekend.
As one of the island’s most sought-after voices, Adana enjoyed numerous performing opportunities throughout the Tobago Carnival festivities. Her collaboration with Zan on the Scarborough Riddim titled ‘We Reach’ became one of the soundtracks of the Carnival, which ended on Sunday.
“Tobago’s staging of Carnival has potential and I can attest to it providing me with amazing opportunities to showcase my talent and music,” said Adana.
The artist said she is happy to have been embraced by not only Tobago natives, but visitors who attended the celebrations. She said it was heartwarming. Although the final days of the festival on the island were dampened by rainfall, Adana extended thanks, and commended the event organizers and promoters for putting their best foot forward. The singer performed at a number of events, including Bago Jam, Blue Food Festival, Vibes With Voicey, Eden, Soca Jam, Bougie and others.
At the Tobago Stars Of Soca competition, Adana served as a judge. She said the talent displayed was indicative of the potential there is on the island. She says she sees the competition as “the perfect environment to foster and enhance the careers of all competitors.”
From November 6-11, Adana is scheduled to be part of a contingent from Tobago that will exhibit at the World Travel Market in London. Beyond that she anticipates her involvement in Trinidad ans Tobago’s carnival in February.
