This past Tuesday, Kes The Band celebrated their 5th year of Tuesday on the Rocks. Kes has been having quite a successful carnival season mainly attributable to his very popular hit “Hello”. Tuesday on the Rocks, seemed by some as a must-attend event, saw some fans with ticket-in -hand from as early as November 2017.

While the show was advertised as being “sold out”, on Monday night, no one really anticipated being stuck in traffic for hours to get to the O2 Park venue on a Chaguaramas. Commuters heading West found themselves in gridlock traffic from as far as Cocorite, as all roads led to Tuesday on the Rocks.

Truth be told, while the event lured many, a number of angry and frustrated commuters opted to sell their tickets to scalpers on the way to the event, as a result of the traffic situation. For others however, the wait would be worth it.

When EBUZZTT finally arrived, the venue looked pretty good. The turnout was as anticipated and the guest performances were underway. Of course, Patrice Roberts delivered her collaborative hit sung with Kees, and the crowd was treated to other major acts like Nailah Blackman, Barbados’ Marzville, Problem Child of St. Vincent and Erphaan Alves, Nadia Batson and Sekon Star from T&T.

Nailah Blackman Unleashes Pure Sweetness With The Iron in Mind.

Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival is nothing without the sweet sound of the steel pan. Paying homage to the great men and women, and even youngsters who live their lives passionately beating the percussion instrument, the granddaughter of Ras Shorty I, Nailah Blackman, has unleashed a brand new track that’s both aesthetically pleasing and rhythmically hot, and we’re here for it!

On Monday, the hit maker, who only shot to fame about a year and a half ago, delivered her new release via LIVE social media  updates, showing fans of Soca that their music can reach them beyond the traditional radio airwaves. The new track, “Iron Love”,  features the Laventille Rhythm Section, and was produced by Anson Soverall.

Nailah’s been extremely consistent musically, over the past year. Her breakthrough onto the mainstream Soca circuit alongside Kees Dieffenthaller in 2017, certainly gave her the thrust she needed, and she hasn’t stopped since. Her collaborations with Jamaica’s Shenseea, Tarrus Riley and Ding Dong, have each placed her in categories that add to her musical profile, leveraging her as a Caribbean female artiste that isn’t afraid to grow beyond what she started off as.

Blackman’s vocals have also been featured on a single with Bosnian-born Swedish DJ and producer Salvatore Ganacci. That track’s called, “Kill A Sound Boy”.

Now, check out Iron Love. Be sure to let us know how you rate this one, in our comments section below the story.

There’s something about Caribbean people’s strong desire to share the culture of these parts with the world. For Juliana Fermin and her team of just a few, the passion to showcase the beauty of Trinidad and Tobago and by extension, the Caribbean’s culture, is unparalleled.

On the heels of their mid-year sail to Europe with the likes of Shurwayne Winchester, Turner, Preedy, Nailah Blackman and even Jamaica’s Charly Black, Fermin’s Soca on the Seas brand immediately shot into action, delivering an AfroSoca themed cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas. This time, she sought out some of the Caribbean’s like minded culture promoters, acts like Barbados’ Edwin Yearwood, Eddie Charles of the A Team Band, Doggy Slaughter who would double up as Dj and artist, St. Lucia’s multi faceted, Ricky T, young artistes, Turner and Erphaan Alves, and even Chutney Soca Monarch Kings Neval Chatelal and Nishard B. That wasn’t all though. The team would not have been satisfied if they hadn’t gotten the latest hit maker to surface and shock the soca circuit- none other than Problem Child.

From October 8th – one day after Miami Carnival, to Friday October 12th, the Soca on the Seas family brought complete strangers together and it was aboard this amazing 4 night cruise that many who had never heard of Soca or Trinidad and Tobago, or even carnival, would get a first hand introduction to the vibe of what is now a globally expressed feeling of euphoria that can only be experienced.
