INTERNATIONAL ACTS could be part of the Cohobblopot stage in the future if event-planner Jerry Ishmael has his way. The head of Premier Event Services, the private sector company responsible for staging this year’s Cohoblopot,  said the event attracted close to 7 600 patrons and he believed the increase in numbers by more than 3 000 was largely due to the inclusion of some top  Caribbean artistes. Ishmael told the SATURDAY SUN: “We think we have got a good model and once we are involved putting on a show that highlights the best of Barbadian acts and the tops coming out of the region, we might look to add some international flavour, because Crop Over itself still needs an international presence to bring people into Barbados.” He added: “Cohobblopot to us is a pot boiling with the genres  of music from the Caribbean.  It is not about St Philip, St John, St Michael or Christ church.  It is about the region.
