Amid preparations to deliver his second concert event- something called, ‘Harmony’, on February 8th, All Starz frontline artist, Blaxx has expressed bewilderment and disgust over the state of affairs in Trinidad and Tobago. Speaking with Ebuzztt.com earlier this week, the ‘Breathless’ singer who has consistently contributed to the culture of the Caribbean, said he cannot understand why artistes continue to be irresponsible with their musical lyrics and lashed out at women for disrespecting themselves.

Blaxx says derogatory lyrics in music has a negative effect on the minds of the youth.

Never one to shy away from saying exactly how he feels, Blaxx confronted the negative lyrics that permeate society via the airwaves, arguing that the minds of many young people are being corrupted, from an early age, by the smutty lyrics in music that they’re often exposed to. He called on all artistes in the Caribbean, zeroing in on Trinidad and Tobago’s local music fraternity, to exercise social responsibility. “We as artistes have a responsibility to the population. When we feel these derogatory music interferes with us, it’s worse. It interferes with the future generation- the nine- year- olds and the 7- year- olds,” he said, adding, ” I’ve seen my daughter singing some kinds of songs. We as males are supposed to pull up on our women when we see them doing something wrong. Now, we are encouraging our young women to behave in the worst way,” he said, visibly bothered.

Blaxx is the father of three daughters and a son. He says he believes music is powerful and has the ability to alter moods and influence behaviour. “I have three daughters. You think I could go and sing ‘bounce on it?,” he quizzed, saying that he believes most of the young men committing dangerous and even deadly crimes, listen to a certain type of music. “Don’t doubt for a second that music has the power to influence. We have a group of young ones coming up. We have to love up our women in music, build their self esteem in music. I can’t talk for everybody but I love my mother, my sister and I have three daughters so I am very careful of what I sing. We have to think carefully about what we are putting in our music,” said Blaxx.

What started off as a concert ended as a FETE! Ebuzztt was most present at Tuesday on the Rocks’ debut on the Savannah grass on Tuesday night. The event, which has grown significantly over the years, drew a massive crowd ranging from the young to the young at heart, all there to celebrate the musical catalog of Kes the Band.

As we begin our review, we note that entering the venue seemed less strenuous than previous years as the design was more accommodating – specifically to parking and layout of food and bar. Before the event officially kicked off, patrons were entertained by the likes of Sheldon Blackman and others on a mini stage while patrons enjoyed their favourite oriental, arabian or creole finger food located near a designated eating area.

Vale Vibe Cooler Dishes Out A Fete, Not A Concert.

For yet another spectacular year, well known DJ, Alicia D Duchess and her team of event coordinators provided patrons with nothing short of a true Carnival fete experience. EBUZZTT was on hand this past Tuesday night to enjoy the epic vibes, as we did last year and even the year before that. In fact, this is one cooler experience we try not to miss because it’s one of the very few authentic carnival treats!

The thing about Vale Vibe Cooler that makes it truly pop out for us is its simple, yet effective feting dynamic. This is an event that makes the most of a venue that’s not the biggest. The event takes place annually at Bayview in Maracas, along the North Coast road. Parking for patrons is roadside and security by police officers along the roadway, is never to be questioned.

Flag wavers, shorts and t shirts and great music makes Vale Vibe Cooler a necessary fete for Ebuzztt.

On the inside, the ambience is beautifully, natural- no unnecessary ad ons- just effective, efficient infrastructure and non stop feting. Patrons attending Vale Vibe Cooler are mostly foreigners who come in for the carnival experience, many of them amped to maximise on their few days in T&T. A nice mixture of mature and young fetters delivers to this fete, a keen, much needed freedom that’s expressed in smiles, airborne hands, voracious singing to every soca track played and not to mention the oldies that are goodies that every international carnival lover basks in. This is never an ordinary fete- this is a fete for true carnival revellers, the ones that are sometimes forgotten.

On Tuesday night, Voice, the prolific three time Soca monarch Champ came through with the music. He impressed thoroughly, even engaging a young patron who’d flown in from Boston. She mounted the stage as the entertainer came on, ready to back back her derriere on him, and that she did.
