You’ll Never Believe What Bunji Garlin Did…

Published

Bunji’s mother celebrated her 80th birthday on Saturday.

Bunji Garlin’s no punk. He makes it very clear that he’s a man whose heart belongs to three women, namely his wife, mother and daughter, Syri. With that said, the folks who attended Fatima All Inclusive on Saturday night had to take the blame for Garlin’s obvious tardy arrival to his mother’s  80th birthday party in East Trinidad. He told them he would not take the blame for it, all the while recording them on his smart phone, much to their excitement.

The carnival excitement in Trinidad and Tobago has climaxed. Those who aren’t already here for the festival, will likely be coming in, from around the world this week. Cardi B is also scheduled to arrive this week ahead of the much anticipated, ‘Big Bad Soca’ event, which takes place on Wednesday at the Brian Lara Stadium car park, in Tarouba. Bunji and his wife Fay-Ann also headline that event. Last evening however it was all about his mom, Harriet- the woman we all must be thankful to, for sharing her awesome son with us.

Here’s a look at what Bunji did at Fatima…

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.
