It’s official. There’s a brand new carnival concierge service operating out of Trinidad and Tobago and this past Saturday, September 28th, the 1One Nation Carnival outfit revealed its small but effective catalogue of designs for Carnival Monday and Tuesday.

SECTION: Revelry


Held at the Bungalow in Woodbrook, the launch unveiled the sections, Revelry, Insurgente, Carpe Diem and Amor- all elements that make up the creative portrayal of Tropical Wonderland, envisioned by bandleader Sejoux Nelson. With narration by 3 Canal’s Wendell Manwarren, those in attendance on Saturday night were treated to a truly unusual yet beautiful reveal, complete with ambient sounds that meshed perfectly with the Soca vibration that will bring the costumes to life in 2020.

The unit has spearheaded a campaign that unites Couture design with carnival, something the team believes has been missing in masquerade portrayals annually. “Our aim is to give international mas lovers something to truly be blown away by- something that effectively portrays the cultural beauty of our people and the vast creativity that can be found here,” said Nelson.

Section: Insurgent. Renowned Model, Athaliah Samuel was a part of the launch.


The concierge service will provide visitors to Trinidad and Tobago, from around the world, with a complete Carnival destination package, inclusive of accommodation, ground transportation, fete tickets and the element of Mas on Carnival Monday and Tuesday, with 1One Nation Carnival.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

Nailah in Switzerland.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
