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.
Soca Gold 2021 is due out on September 3rd; however, VP is giving us a taste of what is to come by sharing the first single: Go Gal by Alison Hinds. Anyone familiar with Alison knows that she is the original queen of soca. So this, like most if not all her previous releases, is a hit!
Soca Gold 2021 is a non-stop party juggling with a bonus mega-mix disc performed by DJ Puffy. The compilation will feature South African artist Master KG and the monster hit Jerusalema, six recent Soca Gold anthems from Rupee, Iwer George, Edwin Yearwood and others, plus so much more.
Persons can pre-order here.
