Machel Montano is a happy man today. Two days after Bunji Garlin rocked the Coachella stage in California, Machel did pretty much the same thing alongside Major Lazer, sending a massive crowd of thousands who’d gathered for what some consider the biggest music and arts festival in the United States, wild with excitement.

Rihanna surprised fans at Coachella on the weekend.

Rihanna surprised fans at Coachella on the weekend.

Coachella welcomed some pretty big names this past weekend, including a surprise appearance by Barbados born international recording star, Rihanna. Taylor Swift was also there, taking in the show and by all accounts, she was pretty stumped when Rih walked on stage and broke into her hit, “We Found Love”. Rihanna was also spotted hanging out with Leonardo Di Caprio, fueling rumours that the two are love interests.

Machel Montano’s performance at Coachella though was definitely a big moment for Soca, Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean. Montano had performed in Brooklyn, NY at an event called Diaspora Calling on Friday night. It was a TIDAL music event and Montano was one of several big names on the cast. Lauren Hill would headline and the King’s Theatre would also erupt with amazing performances by Stephen Marley, Stonebwoy out of Ghana and Haiti’s Paul Bearbrun. Two nights later, Montano would  get his career high moment in California.

“Just rocked the biggest stage of my life on the main stage of #Coachella2016 with my bruddas from @majorlazer @diplo @walshyfire @jillionaire alongside @duttypaul #OneWine #AllMyLove #SoundBang,” Montano had posted on his Instagram feed. Indeed he had. Like Garlin’s stage ripping performance on Friday night, nothing much had been revealed relative to Montano’s appearance at Coachella on Sunday. A pic posted just about two hours prior to his performance, revealed that something major was going down.

The Trinidadian superstar continues to work hard, having recently visited Bali where he tagged his images #balisongwritinginvitational. It was by no means a vacation for Montano. Now, we await his next move, post Coachella.

The superstar that he is, has been humbled, replaced by a man of strong faith and blossoming spiritual understanding. Chicago born US rapper and often controversially charged, Kanye West performed with a 120 man choir at the Emancipation Park in New Kingston, Jamaica on Friday night.

West who’s been on a spiritual journey since April, performed for two hours at the arena, ending his set with his popular rap anthem, ‘Jesus Walks.’ Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian was not on the island.

Ebuzztt understands that included in Kanye’s repertoire were songs like, Damian Marley’s, ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ and the gospel hit, ‘Prince of Peace.’ The entertainer took the opportunity, during his set, to thank the people of Jamaica, saying, “I just want to thank Jamaica for the open door they gave us. I want to thank the Government, the police and the people of Kingston.”

West’s services have, thus far, been held in Los Angeles, Wyoming, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C. It is reported that he plans on taking the Sunday Service show to Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Here’s a snippet of the event, held on Friday night.
