Could Beyonce Be Wildin’ Out In Trinidad for Carnival 2018?

Published

Neal Farrinah, Beyonce’s hairstylist who is Trinbagonian, says he’s been working on getting the international music icon to experience carnival in T&T. 

Her hairstylist is Trinbagonian native, Neal Farinah of the popular Neal Farinah Salon in New York City. He’s world traveled and has the link to several of the music industry’s top celebs, chief among them, Beyonce Knowles. Last night, in a pretty matter of fact kind of way, Farinah told EBUZZTT that he’s been working on getting Bey to visit T&T for Carnival. How awesome would that be!? Farinah also told us that Beyonce really wants to come, and her sister Solange, too.

International music makers and top celebrities have, in the past few years, been seeking that Caribbean fire. They’ve been using samples of the Caribbean’s sound in their records and there’s no doubt that big names like DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have aided in this sudden craving for what’s hot about the Caribbean by these international top guns. Farinah says he’s been “working on it”, when asked whether he’d be getting Beyonce to visit for Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival.

Beyonce performed in T&T in February 2010, mere days after that year’s carnival festival. The concert appearance was organized by state owned telecommunications company, TSTT and was in fact frowned upon by many carnival event promoters who simply felt that the state owned company should have spent the sizable investment on the sponsorship of carnival related events instead. Whether we’ll see JayZ’s wife and maybe the notorious Brooklyn born rapper too, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed and wait and see. Maybe Neal will come through for us!

Voting closes tomorrow- June 19th. Thing is though, whether Nailah wins for Soca or not, Trinidad and Tobago will the year be well represented when Bunji Garlin and his wife and musical partner, Fay Ann Lyons take the stage at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.

Ironically, Shenseea and Konshens dropped new music with Rvssian on June 15th- a track called, “Hard Drive” that the Jamaican dancehall princess has been pushing hard, since. Likewise, T&T’s Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons released two separate tracks back to back between Sunday and Monday. Bunji’s track “Bruk Down” was produced by Fryktion, as was Fay Ann’s “Lift”. Both tunes have been released for St. Vincent’s upcoming carnival.

One of dancehall’s leading contemporary artistes is on his way to Trinidad and Tobago for the highly anticipated and much talked about Inferno concert being held on Saturday at the Jean Pierre Complex. Busy Signal’s been creating major waves in the hemisphere and further afield in the past few weeks, having teamed up with Brazil’s MC KevinHo on a track called ‘Loko’, that’s also shared with Brazil’s Tropikal Bass Killers and the prolific, Major Lazer. The Jamaican Singjay recently represented his homeland in Brazil where Brazil’s MTV Awards took place. On June 9th, Busy will take the stage with some of dancehall’s biggest names at the Inferno concert event- a show that organisers insist starts promptly at 10pm.

It’s not Busy Signal’s first time on T&T’s soil, however, in a concert affair that is being touted as a mammoth rejuvenation of true dancehall and reggae vibes in T&T, the energy surrounding Busy Signal’s inclusion on the Inferno cast, is second to none. “We see this as the perfect blend of dancehall and reggae. On one hand you have Capleton- an artist that’s known to defend it when it comes to that hardcore conscious vibe, and of course Sizzla’s never to be outdone in that arena. Then on the other end of the spectrum we’re giving patrons good vibes, conjuring good feelings and nostalgia of days gone by with Barrington Levy- an essential name when it comes to reggae music. This is a man who ran things in the early 90s and has a catalogue of music that many of the up and coming acts could only hope to achieve. When Busy Signal’s added to that dynamic, it could only be magic on show night at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port-of-Spain,” said the organizer. Levy meanwhile, performed in St. Lucia on the weekend- the perfect warm up to what’s going to unfold in Trinidad.
