Farmer Nappy, Iwer George & Others To Perform At Kes The Band’s “IzWe” Concert In NY

Trinidad & Tobago soca stars Kes The Band will hit the road in the U.S. this Fall for their first tour dates in two years. 

On Labor Day Monday, September 6th, the band will bring its IzWe concert series — a curated celebration of soca music and Caribbean Carnival culture — to The Boardwalk Lot, Coney Island, in Brooklyn, NYC. With New York’s annual West Indian American Day Carnival — which typically brings 2 million revelers to Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway on Labor Day Monday — cancelled for a second year due to Covid-19, Kes The Band aim to fill the void with a night of performances by some of soca music’s biggest names. 

For IzWe NY, the group has handpicked a roster of top performers from their native Trinidad & Tobago including Iwer George, Nailah Blackman, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson, Farmer Nappy, Ravi B and Etienne Charles, as well as Barbados soca icon Alison Hinds, St. Lucia’s Teddyson John and Nomcebo (of “Jerusalema” fame) from South Africa.
