Tobago-born Calypso Rose is more than a diva. She’s a boss. In fact, the almost 79-year-old hit maker who was last year awarded  the Grand Prize for World Music award at the Sacem Grand Prix in France, is set to make her debut at Coachella, in 2019.

The festival, which has seen the likes of Beyonce, Madonna and Kendrick Lamar hit the stage in previous years, is a major music and arts showcase and party that sees thousands flood the venue over a two weekend period. This year, between April 12th and April 21st, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Diplo, Ariana Grande, Khalid, Solange, Kid Cudi, Pusha and Wiz Khalifa will be a part of the musical excitement. Added to that is none other that this amazing Calypso icon of Trinidad and Tobago, Calypso Rose.

Rose’s team took to Instagram to make the announcement, relaying the artiste’s excitement to be a part of the lineup. “I can’t wait to sing, dance and enjoy this time with all of you,” she said. Rose recently unleashed a new single with Trinidad and Tobago’s king of Soca, Machel Montano- a track called, “Young Boy”. It’s the second time, in recent years that the pair have worked together to create music in the carnival season. Separately, Rose, who released an album last year called, “So Calypso,” toured throughout Europe last year, showing the people in that part of the world that she certainly remains a powerful force on the music circuit. We can’t wait to see and hear her in all her glory, at Coachella.

Miami Carnival is anticipated annually. Thousands flock to the hot Miami Beach hotels, enjoying the Collins Avenue atmosphere in the days leading up to the J’ouvert on the Saturday and the parade of the bands on the Sunday. With endless restaurants shopping and entertainment options in this hub of fun, Caribbean people, who are traditionally fun at heart, have no problem settling in.

On Saturday morning all roads led to the Miami J’ouvert and EBUZZTT took in the action. In true Caribbean style, big trucks assembled, Djs from around the world gathered to bring the vibe to the people and crowds of eager fetters, penetrated the scene. Like any typical J’ouvert, there was paint, powder, water and lots of smiles. Along the venue, there were food stalls delivering sumptuous Caribbean cuisine which included many Jamaican dishes, like rice and peas and ox tail. There was also Trinidad and Tobago delights like Shark and fries and soup.

The enjoyment was unparalleled for most who came out to have fun. All inclusive J’ouvert packages purchased, they danced blissfully for the hours that seemed unending. Miami Carnival ambassador, Giselle the Wassi One, came through with the J’ouvert fun for her faithfuls who lapped it up. Artistes like Motto and Mandela Linkz performed and we also heard Skinny Banton in the mix. For most Soca artistes, Miami Carnival gives them the platform to release their potential hits ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival each year.

EBUZZTT caught up with three time International Soca Monarch Champion, Voice, who highlighted his appreciation for Miami Carnival.
