Leonce says she is ready to hit the stage at SocaSoakHer.

One of the biggest events to hit Trinidad and Tobago prior to what is likely to be another epic Carnival season, will be SocaSoakHer. The event goes down at Guaracara Park, in South Trinidad on Saturday night. Promotion leading up to the mammoth outdoor fete, which will see some 1000 women enter the venue FREE, has been powerful and  truly energetic. Leonce – one part of the frontline of New York City’s Request Band has flown in for the weekend and already she’s amped. In a chat with EBUZZTT.COM earlier, the “Touch De Road” singer said she’s beyond excited to perform at SocaSoakHer.

A number of top notch females are billed in the lineup. Destra with her full band, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson and SASS and Denise Belfon will form the female powerhouse lineup, however, not to be outdone, the likes of entertainment sensations, Bubbles, Cardi Gray, Sasha Melody, Tobago’s Adana, Jo Jo, Krystal Khayne, Leonce, Nenita, Jadel and Nelly Cottoy, will bring added heat to what the organizer is promising, will be a memorable water event. Ticket prices have been set affordably with women even having the option to couple up and enter on one ticket. Their male counterparts pay just $200 to enter. John Michael Alibocus, the man best known as Makamillion, known for his ability to truly promote massive events in the Southland, told Ebuzztt that this showcase of the best female acts in T&T, will deliver to patrons, a good look at what these women are truly capable of executing. He however assured that the party will not be an exclusive Soca fete. “We have to remember that we’re still in the crossroads between Christmas and Carnival. The aim is to just give patrons a memorable event so we’re not boxing it in. We’re delivering fun, good vibes, a secure environment and non stop entertainment across the board on show night. This is not an event to miss. We’ve also organized shuttle buses from various points so people can come out, flex, enjoy and not have to drive home after drinking. We want everybody to be safe,” said Alibocas.

On Thursday, Destra Garcia was among a promo contingent making the rounds. Earlier in the day, photos emerged of the Soca hit maker stepping confidently on her ankle, giving us some assurance that she would be near perfect for the stage, come Saturday night. The SocaSoakHer event is the first of what is expected to be an annual pre-Carnival showcase of the Carnival hitmakers and the DJs and radio personalities who take the season to its full glory by the month of February. The lineup will also include MX Prime- the reigning Road March King, Kes The Band, Orlando Octave, Kerry John, Swappi, Farmer Nappy, Dev, S Carter, Yankey Boy, Voice, Iwer George, Jahmel and Makamillion himself. The show will be hosted by well known radio personality turned artist, Smooth.

One of dancehall’s leading contemporary artistes is on his way to Trinidad and Tobago for the highly anticipated and much talked about Inferno concert being held on Saturday at the Jean Pierre Complex. Busy Signal’s been creating major waves in the hemisphere and further afield in the past few weeks, having teamed up with Brazil’s MC KevinHo on a track called ‘Loko’, that’s also shared with Brazil’s Tropikal Bass Killers and the prolific, Major Lazer. The Jamaican Singjay recently represented his homeland in Brazil where Brazil’s MTV Awards took place. On June 9th, Busy will take the stage with some of dancehall’s biggest names at the Inferno concert event- a show that organisers insist starts promptly at 10pm.

It’s not Busy Signal’s first time on T&T’s soil, however, in a concert affair that is being touted as a mammoth rejuvenation of true dancehall and reggae vibes in T&T, the energy surrounding Busy Signal’s inclusion on the Inferno cast, is second to none. “We see this as the perfect blend of dancehall and reggae. On one hand you have Capleton- an artist that’s known to defend it when it comes to that hardcore conscious vibe, and of course Sizzla’s never to be outdone in that arena. Then on the other end of the spectrum we’re giving patrons good vibes, conjuring good feelings and nostalgia of days gone by with Barrington Levy- an essential name when it comes to reggae music. This is a man who ran things in the early 90s and has a catalogue of music that many of the up and coming acts could only hope to achieve. When Busy Signal’s added to that dynamic, it could only be magic on show night at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port-of-Spain,” said the organizer. Levy meanwhile, performed in St. Lucia on the weekend- the perfect warm up to what’s going to unfold in Trinidad.
