SOCIAL SCENE: Bajan talent for US campuses
There was a wealth of Bajan talent onstage at the Sea Rocks Auditorium, Barbados Beach Club, and lots of excitement and support in the audience the night American talent scouts auditioned Bajan performers for the United States college circuit recently.
Soca Queen Alison Hinds, Blood, Masala and NexCyx have all done the college circuit in the past and it was time to seek out new talent.
Among the performers showcasing their acts were steel pan player Ziggy Walcott, vocalist and keyboardist Wesu and Andre Forde on steel pan and cajon.
In the audience cheering them on were big names on the local entertainment scene such as Adrian Clarke, this year’s calypso king Ian Webster and Philip 7.
From the look on the faces of the American scouts, the Bajan talent really wooed them.
