First soca feast

Four hours after the doors opened to the thousands at Kensington Oval; after plenty DJs from Barbados, Trinidad and Jamaica had their turn on the wheels of steel; even when the crowd would start booing loudly just before 1 a.m. Sunday and chanting “We want soca” over and over again, Socatology 2014 – Carnival Tabanca edition would take more than it’s time to start.
But once it got going, it was like rapid fire, especially having such a packed card of soca entertainers on the bill. This included and started with the six local artistes – Synpa, Verseewild, Big Red, Bobo & Fadda Fox and Soka Kartel (minus Blood) – who all had to jam-pack their music into 30 minutes.
By 1:30 a.m. Blaxx was the first Trinidadian to perform but was only able to sing snippets of each of his songs, including his 2014 Mash Up D Road and last year’s very popular Leh Go. However, by their responses, the patrons didn’t seem to mind. They wanted soca and they were going to get soca and more.
Speaking of which, introducing Mr Killa, from Grenada, who came specifically to demonstrate why he is the Rolly Polly specialist.
