~Soca or Die 6~



One of the biggest fetes in the west end to kick off Caribana '07 was well worth the wait in the cold ass line up. This was my sis & bro-in-law's first fete, & I think it was a good first time experience. They got some excellent shots, including Wanda's above TriniGyrl, & Rudder below.
The high priest himself King David Rudder started off the show at 1:30, & he delivered his standard strong set, including The Hammer, Trini 2 de Bone, & Bahia Girl.

Jeremy Leadbeater

Kerwin Du Bois's Madology and Party Rocker were both good.
Mamacita is one of my fave hottest tunes this season, so I was especially looking forward to Collie Buddz, but his 20 or so minutes on stage was rather underwhelming. The crowd was feeling Come Around & Mamacita, but his other stuff, not so much.At 3:00 Nadia Batson performed with KES the Band & brought down de place with My Land and Lion.
Ziggy Rankin was a no show as apparently he couldn't get into the country. (Hmmmm...??)

The great quality corn soup & bake n shark after were hot & tasty enough to almost make you stop shivering. Tasted like Trinidad, but didn't feel like Trinidad ...maybe in June.

Up next, Carnival Nationz Big Top band launch!
