International Artiste Night and Soca Monarch, two events introduced to Dominica carnival in the last two seasons, will not be staged in 2010 due to budgetary constraints. Unfortunately, these events though relatively new to local celebrations, were very popular with Dominican youth and will be sorely missed.
The cancellation is disappointing, but its not the end of the road for Dominica Soca Monarch. Organizer Val Cuffy told the media the event has been rescheduled for May 23, 2010. Before then reigning soca monarch Daddy Chess will be taking his show to Trinidad to represent Dominica at International Soca Monarch on Friday, February 12, 2010.
Love and Soca,
