Lyrikal’s Artist Game’s On Point. Say It Ain’t So….Meanwhile, Did you See Nadie?

Published

Bunji Garlin and his Wife Fay Ann Lyons were attractions at Miami’s Best of the Best on the weekend.

Last weekend was a big one for Soca music. It’s officially touring season for most soca stars. A number of the A List soca artistes have been flying their respective island flags around the Caribbean and parts yonder, since T&T’s Carnival 2018 season came to an end, but for many others, it’s just about to begin. Fay Ann Lyons and Bunji Garlin caused a scene in Guyana, turning patrons’ umbrellas into makeshift waving tools before jetting off to Miami for the Best of the Best event, which featured a massive cast of Jamaican heavyweights including Capleton who’s set to appear in Trinidad on June 9th for the Inferno Concert event.

Nadia Batson performed in Atlanta this past weekend.

Alison Hinds is still on her A Game. She performed in Atlanta on the weekend.

This past weekend was also the Memorial Day weekend in the US, making Atlanta Carnival a top shelf experience for many US based soca lovers.

Lyrikal was one to watch in the ATL, no doubt. Ever crisp, ever clean and always representing well for the red, white and black, the ‘Loner’ singer who has proven that consistency is a must in this business, donned a face mask emblazoned with his country’s colors, kickstarting what we believe will be a fad in the coming year, for many Caribbean entertainers.

Nadia Batson also flew out to Atlanta, as did Dev and Barbados’ Alison Hinds. Dev’s signature J’ouvert style has been making major waves overseas, the artistes undoubtedly becoming more settled in his on- stage persona, each time he hits a venue.

Soca artistes are making the Caribbean look damn good- that’s for sure. They’re living up to the vibe of the impenetrable island rhythms and we’re taking ’em in, every step of the way. Meanwhile, with Antigua Carnival in the making, Ricardo Drue’s got new music. Have you heard it? Take a listen below and of course, let us know what you think in the comments section below.

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.
