Booster Shot: Has Dancehall Officially Invaded Carnival?

>> Friday, February 12, 2010

Tonight is the biggest night on the soca calendar hands down.  Around the world fans a hoping to catch a glimpse or read a little news about International Soca Monarch.  However, I can't help but notice that prior to today...dancehall has been taken centre stage at Trinidad Carnival.  Whether it be a radio add naming Serani, Jah Cure or whomever else as a headline act, or just the amount of remixes featuring the top names in the dancehall game, you can't deny that 2010 is a whole new playing field when it comes to the music.

Many are talking about it, but few really care.  The fetes are as packed as ever, and I'm sure the Arima Velodrome will still be teeming with big flags and rags to show love to the soca stars vying for the crowns.

But it is definitely food for thought....

THE FURORE surrounding TSTT’s decision to bring mega superstar Beyonce to Trinidad for a concert right after Carnival seems to have died down but interestingly there has been no such controversy with Jamaican reggae singer Jah Cure’s participation in this year’s Carnival celebrations.
Jah Cure, born Siccature Alcock, was released from prison in 2007 on parole having served eight years from a 15-year sentence for rape, as well as gun and robbery charges....
