Soca queen Alison Hinds will be giving her last performance at home for the year at the Ship Inn on Thursday night. Hinds has not performed locally since Crop-Over, and it is the first time she will be performing in this kind of setting in a number of years. She  has also released a couple of tracks for Trinidad Carnival, which she said were doing well. There is one which was first released in Toronto on the Girl Scout rhythm called Soca Queen. “It’s been received very well, not only in Trinidad but all over. Now, when you release songs you do an email blast . . . . I’ve been getting lots of really good feedback about it,” she said. Hinds has also released Makalele, a few Chutney tracks and she is also on a remix with Gyptian for his Nah Let Go. “It is looking real nice, and I have a couple more songs to release for Trinidad Carnival,” Hinds added. She plans to be in Trinidad from early February to perform and make other public appearances in the lead-up to the spectacular climax in March.
