On Sunday April 23rd, Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra will make its debut at the Jamaica Carnival as part of the Bacchanal Carnival Band.
Caribbean Airlines is all about connecting people and Carnival is an integral part of who we are as a region. From the moment you board a Caribbean Airlines flight, the festivity and authentic Caribbean experience begins.  We are delighted to share the sounds of one of Trinidad and Tobago’s oldest steel bands, Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra*, with the people of Jamaica,” stated Alicia Cabrera, Senior Marketing Manager, Caribbean Airlines.
As part of the visit to Kingston, Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra will welcome arriving passengers on Saturday, April 22 at Norman Manley International Airport. “We are looking forward to giving Kingston a special musical treat, when we entertain passengers on their arrival at Norman Manley International on Saturday.

@LinkyFirst3: The Jamaican Soca Artist To Watch!


Carnival season is in full swing here in Jamaica, and the Socaphiles will be wukking up and wining all day and night. One particular song will be given multiple spins, but what many will not know, is that it was done by one of their own…

Words by ShannyDeLioness

Yes you heard me right, we have a full fledged Jamaican Soca Artist! While we’ve had Dancehall/Soca/Calypso collaborations over the years by the likes of Beenie Man,  Konshens, Spice, and of course you all know of the late Legend Byron Lee and his Dragonaires, and the timeless Fab 5 Band, this Artist has taken his talents and determination and became the first to make it to the International Soca Monarch finals! His name is…Linky First!

Born Jason Henriques, Linky First has been blowing up the airwaves in Trinidad & Tobago and the rest of the Caribbean with his hit single, “Rock & Come In” on the Ruffin produced “Liming Riddim” since its release last year. He has since followed up with “Control It”, “X6”, “Doctor”, and “Naked Pon The Road”.

@MachelMontano, @CharlyBlack876, @Troyton_TM Team Up For “VIP Girl”!


It’s a Caribbean connection when Trinidad’s Soca King Machel Montano teams up with Jamaica’s Diamond selling Dancehall Artist Charly Black and top Producer Troyton Hinds for “VIP Girl”! Bringing two musical giants in their respective genres together was something the Billboard Producer Troyton envisioned for a long time. The single was recently released under the Troyton Music label, and distributed by 21st Hapilos.
When asked about making the collaboration a possibility, Troyton recalls being invited to Trinidad along with Charly for a staging of “Machel Mondays” in February of 2016. During their rehearsals, the trio had a conversation about music and their successes in Dancehall and Soca when Troyton suggested Charly and Machel team up for a song. With approval from both sides, Troyton quickly worked on a Riddim after his arrival back to Jamaica. Soon after, Troyton reached out to Charly for his verses which were recorded in Jamaica, then reached out to Machel who worked on his in Trinidad.
Since its release earlier this month, the single has been constantly requested from DJs and fans alike both locally and Internationally. A music video is in the works with directorial duties being handled by Damion Gayle of Warrior Films with Trinidad and Jamaica being the locations chosen. When asked what makes a “VIP Girl”, Troyton replied, “A woman who possesses class, intelligence, and the right amount of sexiness!”.
“VIP Girl” is now available on iTunes.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Calypso Rose – Come Leh We Jam (1977)


Today on Oldies Sunday, we look back at the Calypso Legend, Calypso Rose’sCome Leh We Jam“. Arranged/Produced by Pelham Goddard and Charlie’s Roots, this single was released in 1977 by CLO Records. The single was a part of her “Her Majesty: Calypso Rose” album which was released the same year, and was entered in the 1978 Trinidad Road March Competition. With her signature delivery, she speaks on the Soca music putting her in a wonderful place and prompting her to dance through it all. She also encourages unity in the dance with lyrics like “So leh we jam, jam, jam…“, “Jam together, Jam one another…“.
