The Tobago Jazz Experience isn’t about a one dimensional musical outlook, In fact, it’s just the opposite and the ETCETERABUZZ team found this out for ourselves when we took to the Signal Hill Recreation Grounds this past Sunday. On the hill we were privy to a performance by a soulful pair of sisters who call their stylish outfit, the Xavier Strings.

Kimba Sorzano delivers an energetic performance at Signal Hill

Kimba Sorzano performed on Sunday at Jazz on the Hill

On a pair of violins, the beautiful duo brought the large crowd to thunderous applause with their sensational and pretty inspiring renditions of songs like Bunji Garlin’s Differentology and music from other familiar acts, among them, Adele. The pair even did a folk performance segment – something that induced somewhat of a dancing vibe on the Hill. Other artistes on Sunday night included Kimba Sorzano who delivered his hit singles, Maria and Over You among other songs, creating his very own sound much to the enjoyment of those who’d come out.

Isaac Blackman, vocalists Stephanie Winchester, Dinicia Benjamin, Samuel Duncan and Mariska Melville and even Jazz band, J Major who shared the stage with veteran jazz singer, Patti Rogers kept the audience entertained on what was the second Jazz event in the 2013 list of shows.

The Tobago Jazz experience continues this week with concerts from today with the New Orleans styled, Jazz on the Waterfront set to take place at the Millford Esplanade. Of course, on Friday it’s all about The Asylum Band with Fay-Ann and Bunji Garlin. They’ll be performing at Pigeon Point for the World Music Night- sharing the stage with international crooner, Melanie Fiona as well as Jamaica’s Freddie McGreggor and KI and 3 Veni.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.

Countless hit singles and an authentic charisma that makes us all know that Blaxx is one of the real ones, is enough for us to fight to ensure that he stays with us much longer. In fact, so impassioned is artiste and DJ, Dawg E Slaughter about ailing entertainer Dexter ‘Blaxx’ Stewart’s medical condition that he has started an effort to help cover medical expenses for the ‘Breathless’ singer.

Blaxx has reportedly been ailing for approximately three weeks. It is understood that he has suffered kidney complications but is steadily recovering. EBUZZTT was unable to speak directly with the artist, however persons close to him explained that he is resting and recuperating.

When news emerged that Blaxx was ill, Dawg E Slaughter jumped into action, first requesting the artist’s permission before spearheading a drive to generate funds from fans and anyone who felt compelled to contribute in anyway that they could. Bank account information was shared and reposted by artistes like Destra Garcia and Shurwayne Winchester. The effort however became a talking point among some on social media who began questioning why the artiste should be assisted when “soca artistes make their millions.” Utterances like this one, and others of similar expression has led to much hurt by some members of the Soca industry. One artist, speaking on the condition of anonymity told Ebuzztt that it’s sad that the general public continuously chooses to condemn Soca artistes, when in reality, their perceptions of soca music’s creators are far from the truth.

With the exception of Soca’s veteran heavyweight, Machel Montano and a few others, the soca music industry’s contributors, according the artist, have struggled for years and now, with the pandemic, the savings of those who may have managed to save, could be exhausted. “Nobody is working and everyone of us have families, just like everybody else,” expressed the entertainer.
