Party Done & Like Ah Boss Mash Up De Road | T'dad 2015

0 comments

Pick one because one of the two songs above, both by Machel Montano, is the Road March for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2015! 

These two songs were "beaten like ah bobolee" on the road and to be honest, it felt like these were the only song played/were in contention for the title. Machel Montano burned brightly for Carnval 2015 for sure. The song that came from behind and swept the people was "Party Done" and it won't be a surprise if it surpassed "Like ah Boss" for Road March honors. 

Angela Hunte has to be smiling from ear to ear. What an impact for her first carnival release. She co-wrote the song with Machel and accompanied him on the vocals. Say what you may but the lady did her thing and came out smelling of roses. 

It does not matter, at this point. which song takes the honor (only for record keeping sake) because both songs championed the road for Carnival 2015 in Trinidad and Tobago. 

Oh, and by the way.... "Party Done"! Finally, let it be known that Machel Montano's "Like Ah Boss" is the Road March for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2015... the end!

Chucky Repeats as Calypso Monarch for Carnival 2015 | Trinidad & Tobago

0 comments
Who could win it all? Who had two songs to dethrone the reigning Monarch  of Carnival 2014? Well it appeared that most of the singers were trying hard not to win... and some were rewarded for so doing. This one has left a lot of people scratching their heads (again). Maybe it was the dull showing that lulled the judges resulting in head scratching results. 

It appears that there were several groups of 'talented people' judging different categories of each performance. The total points were added and the winner announced. It is my humble opinion that each judge should have judged each singer's performance in totality. Each judge should adjudicate and score points for lyrics, presentation, melody and performance. However, the judges were broken into groups with each group responsible for one aspect of the artist's presentation on stage. 

I can't fault the choice of the winner chosen but I don't understand how Duane O'Connor beat out Tigress when Duane clearly had a disappointing first round of competition. I am sure there are many disappointed people with similar questions. So be it! Let's not cry over spilt milk!

The one position that everyone should be comfortable with it that of the Calypso Monarch selected. Congratulations to Roderick "Chucky" Gordon... he deserved to win tonight!

Here are the Official Results For the Calypso Monarch of Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2015; Chucky Gordon retains the crown!

The Results:
  1. Roderick "Chucky" Gordon (Calypso Monarch for Carnival 2015)

              Party Done Road Mix | Machel & Angela Hunte | T'dad 2015

              0 comments
              Kubiyashi Road Mix of Machel "Monk Monte" Montano & Angela Hunte's hit song "Party Done" for Trinidad & Tobago Carnival 2015.

              "I eh go scew up meh face" but I have to eat my words big time because this Road Mix of "Party Done" has taken this song to another level! Kubiyashi is boss...

              Okay, I was critical of this song when it was first released. I did not like Angela Hunte's voice on the track. Hey, but guess what, I heard this song so much that she has grown on me. This song is big on the radio stations in Trinidad and Tobago! On a serious note, I always liked the music and vibe on 'Party Done' but this release by Kubiyashi simply sent this one off the charts... it is damn good and Angela Hunte's voice is now music to my ears!  I guess that is just the genius of the man Kubiyashi!

              Nice vibes and excellent work done by Kubiyashi. If this was released in mid January it would have created serious trouble on the road. I think this mix came to late. Zagada loves the vibe. Sweet!
