Kaiso showcase in town

Social Share

shoppers and passers-by were entertained by several artistes yesterday in Cave Shepherd for their weekly Crop Over artistes showcase.
Lana Alleyne, marketing manager for Duty Free Caribbean, said: “During Crop Over we like to keep with the spirit of the season, so we have performers come in every Friday for the entire season around 12 and we do it to not only showcase the music and the artistes but also for our customers’ enjoyment.”
She added: “We sponsor Cave Shepherd All Stars tent and they’ve been very successful this year. Many [of the tent’s calypsonians] will be in the Semi-finals, so we decided to give these other upcoming artistes the opportunity to promote their music.”
The artistes featured yesterday were singer and songwriter Romell “Sanctuary” Bennett, who performed his track Woman Friend.
Bennett, who has written for Machel, Destra, Patrice Roberts and Mikey, among others, also did the background vocals for the Strawhat Posse, who performed their 2013 song Sylvia.
Rene King and Philip “Scorpio” Williams from the Strawhat Posse also performed their individual tracks Spice It Up and Run Wild respectively, while emerging artiste Danny “Mr Ink” Crookendale performed his sweet soca track Bumpa Waistline. (DG)
