Soca session in the hills

Soca session in the hills

SHOWERS OF RAIN and sweet soca made for the perfect mix Sunday at the closing event of the Naniki Music Festival 2015.

Patrons came equipped with umbrellas and footwear to counter the wet conditions and mucky grounds of Holders House, St James. And in the words of the headline act soca Edwin The General Yearwood, “No rain could stop this jam”.

It was clear that those there had no problem weathering the incessant rain in order to see the all-Bajan cast perform at Caribbean Fusion In The Hills. The event, billed as a tribute to Trinidadian arranger Leston Paul, saw three local monarchs on stage.

There were clear differences between Sunday’s show and Saturday night’s event, which featured Roberta Flack. The number of people Saturday night outnumbered Sunday’s patrons by 10 to 1. However, those who were there Sunday came out the winners. That’s because this small group of patrons was a much livelier bunch and visibly enjoyed every offering on stage.
