[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”50897″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]THE BOSS. Indeed he is. Why? Well, besides being the only Soca artiste who owns his very own radio station, Iwer George has managed to, for over two decades, deliver songs to make crowds world over, feverishly fete in wild abandon. Iwer is a BOSS. His hilarious outbursts that have become synonymous with his name, characterize his stage shows and despite the cries of many for Iwer to change up his act, truth be told, nobody does it like Iwer George. “Gimme a B Flat!”

Iwer first ignited the Carnival scene in 1987 when he unleashed “Boom Boom Time”– a soca lover’s Déjà vu to a time when a fete was a fete! George cemented his status as the Boom Boom (Bum Bum) man for life, with that one single and while these days his songs are less sexually charged, and often time lean toward the Grenadian Jab Jab culture, Iwer’s music lives- no matter what lyrical undertone. The Point Fortin, Trinidad native, has been crowned the International Soca Monarch champion in 2002, 2003 and 2007- the first accomplishment being a tie with Bunji Garlin when he sang, “Gimme A Bligh”.

Iwer’s selection of soca hits include, “Na Do Dat”, “Look de Ting Deh”, “Party Hot”, “Jump and Wine Up”, “Horn Meh Nah”, “Baldhead Rasta” and most recently, “Jab Jab Man”, “Mind People Business” and ahead of Carnival 2017, “Take A Bathe.”

The entertainer has also sung Calypso music and even Soca Parang, proving that he’s more than meets the eye when it comes to musical versatility. Iwer will certainly go down as one of the Caribbean’s most remembered acts, years from today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” css=”.vc_custom_1484623156764{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]All rights reserved.

K.I.
Approx. 2 min read

[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
Approx. 2 min read

[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]
