It was indeed an experience. On Saturday morning, the masses headed South. The Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba was offering the ultimate Fete experience with superstars Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin billed to perform. Organizers did not disappoint.

From 3am, fetters got there, excited to be a part of Xperience. It was a cooler fete with a difference. In fact, so far from normal was this cooler fete that VIP patrons, all decked off in white, seemed set for an all inclusive party. In the end however, it could be said that patrons of Xperience had a hell of a time both in VIP and General, feting to superstars Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Kees and Voice, Nadia Batson, Swappi, Mr. Killa, Skinny Fabulous, Iwer George, Preedy, Lyrikal, Ravi B and so many other incredible soca artistes.

Fay Ann Lyons at Xperience.

Standing out in the pack on stage was the lady who’s name has been at the tip of every tongue in the past week. Fay Ann Lyons who seemed to have merely accompanied her husband to the event, was called by eager fans to the forefront. She had been seated during Bunji’s performance, but like clockwork, the crowd began chanting her name and she simply could not disappoint. Decked off in activewear that hugged her curvaceous body, Lyons-Alvarez removed her heels and immediately said, “Mr Promoter, cut meh cheque.” The crowd went wild!

Fay Ann’s single, “Dive” has been wreaking havoc at events across T&T. She made good of the song’s lyrics on Saturday morning, much like she’d done at Sekon Sunday one week earlier. What was surprising however was the fact that during their set, Fay Ann was able to get her hubby to dive in too! A massive flag set to catch him, the “One Minute Xtra” singer took the plunge, and was caught by a group of fetters stage-side.

Xperience offered a General and VIP experience. The VIP area boasted a smorgasbord of cuisine, inclusive of doubles and gourmet hot dogs. There were also a number of branded kiosks offering beverage samples. Spacious, safe and comfortable, happy soca lovers seemed to enjoy every moment of the fete.

At sunrise, Machel Montano took the stage and was even joined by Skinny Fabulous and Iwer George. Their collaborative single, “Conch Shell” got a prime opportunity to move the crowd and it seemed to work. We figure a few more fetes and Skinny Fabulous just might have a chance at being a second time Road March title holder in T&T, even if unofficially so.

Trinidad and Tobago looks set to have a prime carnival experience in 2020. It must be said however that while the fun is being had, the Trinidad and Tobago police are out in full force testing alcohol levels after events. Ebuzztt encourages all fete lovers to designate a driver this Carnival! Let’s all live to see, feel and experience many more carnivals in the future.

Beres Hammond is a legend in these parts and on Sunday night as he hosted his “Love From a Distance” virtual concert, he proved that greatness never ceases to amaze.

Beres has delivered his sweet, flavourful reggae love ballads for decades. On Sunday night, as thousands of his loyal fans around the world, streamed the virtual event, they were certainly reminded of the importance of good music, especially in times like these.

 

Beres, joined on stage by Buju Banton.

Reggae music has felt somewhat alienated in recent time, with the surge of more youthful, less melodic artistry, but all is not lost, and on Sunday, Beres accompanied by Marcia Griffiths, Buju Banton and even young dancehall sensation, Popcaan, fulfilled the silent desires of many, many people from around the world.

Vocals properly tuned, the 65-year-old hit maker, rendered some of his most memorable songs, among them, “Stop A Man from Trying,” “Rock Away”, “What One Dance Can Do” and many others. In a video clip, pre-recorded and inserted into the show, Beres told fans, “For all the well wishers, fans, family and friends and everyone, I am very saddened by the almost two years I haven’t seen you… it makes me feel bad. I’m trying to do this thing now, so we can stay in touch. Welcome to Beres…”

Jamaica’s Sean Paul Gives The World ‘Live n Livin’; Says Dancehall Is Not Dead.

Jamaican dancehall artist, Sean Paul’s ‘Live N Livin’ is one of two albums from him, set for release this year. The album, according to a media statement issued, was inspired by the perception of members of the music industry that dancehall is dead. Confronting the sentiment head on, Sean Paul says he believes dancehall is alive and well, and maintains a strong pulse.

Sean Paul set to release two albums in 2021.


The first album being released, showcases over twenty artistes and even having proven himself over the years as an International dancehall trendsetter, Sean Paul says he still aims to highlight the significance of the genre while collaborating with different talented artists. Over the years, Sean Paul has made music with the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Sam Smith, blending and fusing his sound with world rhythms.


Live and Livin’ is dubbed “a collaborative effort,” with 16 tracks all featuring an accompanying artist. On the single, ‘Lion Heart’, Sean Paul stands solo. “It was important to me to show that in our genre of dancehall, we don’t need to clash in order to attain the spotlight. We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rotations on the airwaves or streams. Over the years me, Shaggy, and more recently Koffee, Shenseea and others have been making it onto the world stage and we are not clashing with our co-workers, nor are we dividing our fans. This album ‘Live N Livin’ is an album I hold very dear to my heart because it shows the effort of collaboration over confrontation,” he said.


The album features veteran artists like Buju Banton, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Busy Signal, Mavado, and the younger generation of artists such as Chi Ching Ching, Intense, Skillibeng, and Govana and more.


‘Live N Livin’ is set to be released on March 12th and is executively produced by Sean Paul’s label Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.
