Day 31 – Kerwin Du Bois

Published

on

Kerwin Du BoisA genius by all accounts, singer, producer, and songwriter, Kerwin DuBois, who started off humbly in his youth as a budding Calypsonian, has transcended into one of Soca music’s most deserving and well- respected heroes.

His hits are numerous and each has the ability to offer euphoric vibes that penetrate without external force. Like magnet to steel, so is Kerwin DuBois’ infectious music, to the ear of real, die-hard Soca music lovers. Du Bois, prior to entering the Soca foray wholeheartedly, had been known as one to watch in the Young Kings Calypso arena. In fact, he is a multiple time champ in that regards. His transition to the world of Soca brought with it the adoration of not only fans of carnival and soca, but also fellow entertainers, many of whom flocked to his side, for the magic DuBois touch.

Based in Canada, the humble Caribbean native has created timeless hits. Songs like, “Bacchanalist”, “Posessed,” “Fete of the Year”, “Wettin”, “Too Real”, “Lockdown” with fellow artiste, Lyrikal and in 2017, “Misfits”, have catapulted him to heights far removed from many others in the industry. Kerwin DuBois is always a trendsetter. Many say his music brought a new dynamic in its form and melody, to the Carnival landscape and certainly a master of the Groovy, DuBois never fails to get it right.

K.I.

K.I.A major part of Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival landscape, Kris Veeshal Persad, best known as KI, is one of the country’s best Chutney Soca contributors. He has won the Chutney Soca Monarch title three times- the last in 2016.

KI is the son of Trinidad’s established keyboardist, bandleader, & producer Veerendra Persad and KI himself started his career in entertainment as a keyboardist at the age of 7.

He competed and won the very first “Children of Mastana” competition and shortly thereafter migrated to Canada where he spent his formative years concentrating on his Academics and studying music.  KI continued to display his commitment and dedication to the band and was given the opportunity to be lead musician and producer for JMC 3veni. He used this experience to produce the band’s last 5 albums, and collaborated with Madmen Productions in producing the massive hit “In Front Of Meh” by Umi Marcano, formally of Machel Montano’s “HD.”

During his career in the chutney soca music arena, KI has delivered songs like, ‘Catch Meh Lovah’, ‘No More Rum Again’, ‘Same Gyal Twice,’ ‘Runaway’ and ‘Baggage’. He has toured the world and even opened for Soca star Machel Montano in Manhattan, NYC.

Day 40 – Angela Hunte

Angela Hunte

Angela HunteAll it took was one quick collaboration with the King of Soca, Machel Montano in 2015 for the people of her homeland of Trinidad and Tobago, along with the rest of the Caribbean, to fall in love with US based singer songwriter, Angela Hunte.

The Grammy award winner, who is internationally known for her role as contributing writer on the Alicia Keys, Jay Z single, ‘Empire State of Mind’, has certainly immersed herself in the culture of her homeland, proving that she is a Caribbean woman to the core and fully capable of representing the Diaspora with a tremendous sense of ease.

Angela Hunte’s distinct style of soca is truly enticing. Her first collaboration with Machel Montano, a song called ‘Party Done’, heard the vocal range of the Brooklyn resident in a way that immediately sold her to soca music lovers around the world. Onstage, she was the epitome of exuberance. Angela Hunte had sealed the deal and would become a committed part of the Carnival culture of T&T and those experienced around the world.

In 2016, Hunte followed up her ‘Party Done’ anthem with ‘Mon Bon Ami and ‘Like So’. Her 2017 contributions are ‘Big Drum Beat’ and ‘Make Me Go.’
