Soca fans packed Farley Hill National Park this afternoon for the annual Flow Soca on de Hill, which featured several local and regional acts.
Trinidadian artiste Patrice Roberts headlined the show; the expectant mother thrilled the crowd with her hits ‘Old and Grey’ and ‘Money Done’.
The soca concert, organised by 4D entertainment, saw early performances from Shanta Prince, Mole and Lady Essence, and Red Plastic Bag. It was the right selection to get the party started, with a mix of bashment soca and groovy soca.
Soca queen Allison Hinds also treated the audience with a mix of old and new tunes, while reigning Sweet Soca monarch Edwin Yearwood delivered a high energy performance.
Veteran calypsonian, Grynner, ‘de old dog’, was also included in the lineup, with the audience singing along to the chorus of this year’s hit ‘Turn on de speaker’.
Soca on de Hill is one of the highlights of the annual Crop Over calendar of events. (KK)
