Day 39 – Jaiga

Published

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]JaigaA man of music, a man of culture, a man who’s dedicated much of his time to the development of young, up and coming soca artistes- this is Terrin Callendar, best known these days as Jaiga.

For years, Jaiga has contributed behind the scenes, to the Soca music artform and even as a radio personality at one of the Caribbean’s most respected urban frequencies, the entertainer who has given us songs like, “Confidence,” “Anyway”, “Action”, “Speaker Box” and “Gyal Overload”, among countless others, maintains his loyalty to the promotion of Soca music and the artistes who work so arduously to share it with the world.

He has rebranded himself quite a bit since he initially kick started his career as an artiste, moving from the name Super Jigga TC to adopting the sobriquet, Jaiga, and even joining the ranks of Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons’ Asylum Vikings. Jaiga has also proven himself a perfect brand endorsee, teaming up with Trinidad and Tobago’s Stag beer brand, to effectively promote it alongside several other well accomplished soca artistes and personalities. He is also aligned to Converse and in recent days, there has been some talk of his involvement in the creation of something new for the benefit of entertainers and all entertainment stakeholders, in the coming months. Never one to stop, Jaiga is likely to be a part of the Caribbean’s entertainment landscape for many, many years to come.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

K.I.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Day 40 – Angela Hunte

Angela Hunte

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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.’[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484610929211{margin-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #8224e3 !important;}” bg_color_value=”#624bc7″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
