PATRONS who attended the 20th edition of Soca in Moka on Sunday got value for money when it came to entertainment. The line-up of artistes was very impressive and each one came on stage and gave performances worthy of the admission fee at the all-inclusive fete at the Trinity College grounds in Moka, Maraval.
Reigning Soca Monarch Aaron "Voice" St Louis is clearly in a league of his own, his presentation was clean and clear with the music talking for itself, he had everyone in the audience singing along with him. His songs of 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 sounding as fresh as ever.
Reigning Road March winner SuperBlue and Rapso group 3canal had Moka in a frenzy with his current Rag Storm.
Then there was soca darling Nailah Blackman who also treated the audience to her brand of music with some women screaming at the top of their voices. TT's hottest duo for Carnival, Daryl "Farmer Nappy" Henry and Nadia Batson, was at their best with garbage bags in hand.
But the night belonged to Swappi with his massive song Party Start, the audience just could not get enough of his performance and continued chanting his name long after he exited the stage.
There were also performances by Dil-E-Nadan with pannist Dane Gulston and Yohan Chuckaree, Olatunji and his band Tadow (debutante), Blaxx, Ricardo Drue, Teddyson John, Shal Marshall, Sekon Sta, Patrice Roberts, Third Bass among others.
Soca in Moka XX saw the largest audience at the fete in recent years and the committee thanked everyone who came out to support the charitable venture which helps in keeping Trinity College up to mark. The profits from this year’s venture will go to assist in putting a new roof on the college's building.
