Listen back to sets from one of the youngest leaders of modern soca, Trinidad’s musical ambassador and the “King Ah De Dance”.
Aaron “Voice” St.Louis burst on the scene with his 2015 party anthem “Cheers to Life,” and the following year became the youngest entertainer ever to win the International Soca Monarch title. Patrice Roberts on the other hand, burst onto the international scene with her 2005 hit “The Islands.” It was used as the soundtrack for commercials for the Ministry of Tourism, and Roberts’ and Bunji Garlin’s song became one of the all-time anthems of Trinidad and Tobago. And finally, Neil ‘D’ Boss Iwer George’s name has become synonymous with Carnival, so it’s only fitting that he’d stop by London’s biggest celebration of Caribbean culture. His 1987 hit “Boom Boom Time” paved the way for him to become one of soca’s all-time legends, and over decades he has cemented his status as “The Boss” with a major list of hits including “Ah Reading,” “Carnival Come Back Again,” “Gimme Ah Bligh” and “We Reach.” Listen back to their epic sets.
