The party doesn’t stop post-Carnival for many of Soca’s big names. EBUZZTT has learnt that the self proclaimed, Queen Of Bacchanal, Destra Garcia is set to perform at the South by Southwest (SxSW) music festival next month. Hosted annually in Austin, Texas, SxSW is basically a showcase of film, interactive media, and music from across the world, delivered via festivals and conferences. It offers a unique convergence of original music, independent films, and is described as the perfect avenue for fostering creative and professional growth and artist discovery.  The six-day event, which takes place from March 15-20, 2016 celebrates its 30th year, this year.

Kanye and Jay Z have both been featured at the festival in the past.

Annually, SXSW is attended by thousands of music, film, fashion and other creative enthusiasts. Hip Hop trendsetters Kanye West, Jay Z, 50 Cent, Pharrell, Nas, Damien Marley and pop-rock phenom Katy Perry, among other big names have all performed at the festival in the past. The showcase has proven to be a launching pad for new creative content and has created numerous headlines in the entertainment industry. Last year (SXSW 2015), Rolling Stones magazine identified soca artiste, Machel Montano among legendary artistes and emerging rappers in their “30 Artists You Need to See” feature.

It may be the move to catapult the carnival industry to the very next level. There should be no doubt that the concept of the Caribbean carnival- the model initialised by Trinidad and Tobago, has extremely far reaching potential. With global festivals such as Coachella, OvO Fest, and Summerfest among others, drawing thousands to their venues, there’s no reason why a Caribbean carnival concept, should not be among the ‘Music Festival’ big wigs that the world talks about annually.

Tribe’s Dean Akin, together with Eventology’s Derrick Lewis and Caesar’s Army’s Jules Sobian with the help of Jamie Stewart of Commune Sports and Entertainment, are credited with conceptualising the CarniCon convention. This evening’s launch at the National Academy for the Performing Arts in Port-of-Spain will feature a Keynote and Masterclass by brand evangelist and world leading digital futurist, Bonin Bough who’ll enlighten the audience on how digital innovation can transform value streams and generate revenue for governments, Carnival stakeholders and brands.

According to the team, with Carnival being an integral part of Trinidad and Tobago’s culture and tourism product, the convention aims at establishing this country as the owner and leader in the practice, execution and business of Carnival to an attentive global audience of practitioners and enthusiasts in 2020.

Don’t be fooled by Patsy’s coy demeanour. She’s undoubtedly got that insatiable Caribbean fire burning inside. In the past two years, Patrice Roberts has left a mark on the Soca industry that few others have been able to challenge. Her packaged soca effect, which comes complete with glam, fashionable looks and good music, has amped up the competition on the soca scene, and nobody can deny that.

Patrice Roberts has been giving the world that subliminal sex appeal.

This past week, Roberts along with several other Caribbean entertainers made their presence felt on the Uber Soca Cruise. In several photos posted to social media, Roberts reminded us that she’s still in charge, delivering eye candy for her fans and leaving the naysayers dumbfounded, to say the least. One image posted earlier in the week was the topic of much chatter over whether the entertainer has been lightening her skin. Patrice has remained mum on that allegation. Despite the controversial passing comments from onlookers, the mom of one who has already released three new singles ahead of C2K20, including a single called, “Real Woman”, has maintained her appeal.

Patrice, Ricardo Drue and Nailah Blackman

With a banging body that has kept both men and women intrigued, Patrice Roberts is out the gate and certainly ready for the upcoming season. On Thursday, the entertainer was spotted posing with her child’s father, entertainer Ricardo Drue, and fellow sex siren, Nailah Blackman, aboard the Uber Soca Cruise. Patrice’s sexy physique was on display as was Nailah’s – both female artistes throwing out the goods for the world to know they’re both here to stir up the heat.
