Titans at their best
AN EPIC CLASH of the titans occurred in the early hours of this morning.
It was the Fire Man vs Mr Fete as Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons with the Asylum band and headlining act Machel Montano each put on spectacular shows the Soca Titans: The Final Frontier, held at the Coliseum erected at the Bushy Park Racing Circuit.
The Differentology singer and his wife thrilled the thick crowd with their combined hit list, including Truck on D Road, Carnival Tabanca, Red Light District, We Doin’ Dis Owah, Miss Behave and Done D Party. It was perhaps one of the best performances from the first family of soca.
Tropical Storm Bertha showed some of her force around 4 a.m., but it was no match for Machel Montano HD. Some technical difficulties rained on his parade, but he re-emerged around 4:47 a.m. The Happiest Man Alive made sure the Vibes Cyaan Done throughout his one-hour set, which left the crowd – which had dwindled by its 5:30 finish – on a high.
