Trinidad (Sonique Solutions) – Green House Entertainment which recently saw the debut of its ultra premium inclusive event ‘Finesse’ in La Vega, outdid themselves with their annual cooler fete experience ‘Cooler Park’ and attracted a huge crowd to this Central T&T party staple. What started off as a small house lime in a residential area in Couva years ago, later evolved into an all-out block party or ‘blocko’ and has now grown into one of the country’s full-fledged cooler-inclusive events.

    In its short history, ‘Cooler Park’ has grown exponentially from a regular street party to a full blown carnival fixture and has filled out venues such as the Ato Boldon Stadium.

    This year the event moved to the Upper Crust Carpark, Freeport and delivered a vibrant atmosphere from start to end with patrons of all ages hailing from North, South, East and Central Trinidad.

    The Green House Entertainment committee members went all out for this year’s edition and brought forward a stellar cast of DJs which included, Nuphoric, Damian Kidd, Lurbz & Aswaad, Assasin Singh and the Artiste Team.

    Entertainment at Cooler Park was at a high level and included live performances from 2016 International Soca Monarch finalists 5 Star Akil, GBM Neutron and Shal Marshal.
    Also notable was the live set from Chutney-Soca superstar Ravi B who delivered several of his many hit songs such as ‘Prescription’, ‘Bread’, ‘Rum is Meh Lover’, ‘Over Doing It’ and the fan-favourite, ‘Ah Drinka’.

    The Cooler Park crowd erupted at the arrival of featured performers Kes the Band who gave a mind blowing show to the appreciative attendees who could not help but sing along word for word to the band’s every song.

    Lead singer Kees Dieffenthaller had the massive audience eating out of his hands as he unleashed his popular Cross-Caribbean arsenal of musical hits which included, ‘Wotless’, ‘A Million’, ‘Summer Can’t Done’, ‘Tuesday on the Rocks’ and the 2016 hit ‘My People’.

    Cooler Park 2016 delivered on all levels and brought forward the essential elements to create a successful, festive Carnival environment i.e. a spacious, centralized venue, top class DJs and live entertainment and an endless supply of vibes for audiences of varying tastes and backgrounds.

  • Vieux Fort Nobel Laureate Literary Night 2016 a Great Success

    We are pleased to announce that The Vieux Fort Nobel Laureate Literary Night was a great success; over a hundred persons attended. Some persons had to turn away because all seats had been taken.

    On the night, the art of Jonathan Gladding, Lesley Lubin, and Janice Samuel were on display; so were the books of Modeste Downes, Jolien Harmsen, Clive Sankardyal, and Derek Walcott. The poets who read included Shan Lucien, Augustus Cadette, Moses Jn. Baptiste, Julius Ersthee, Vigna Antoine, and Marcia Dolor. There were performances by the Augier Combined School and the Micoud Secondary School. N’Vogue presented a dance called “A City’s Death by Fire.” There was a video presentation of the Nobel Laureates, musical performances by Ally Kyatt, Itoobaa, and Adrian Klien; folk drumming by Tanbou Mele, storytelling by Sylvester “Wasi” Flood, and the premier of a poetry video of Phases, Modeste Downes’ epic poem tracing the history of Vieux Fort. The event was Emceed by Kendall Elva and Sherma Charles (see attached program), and was graced by The Honorable Winall Joshua, Mayor of Vieux Fort, and his wife, Christine.

    In terms of audience applause, N’Vogue and Adrian Klien were the standouts.

    Above all, we want to say this: that good things can happen in Vieux Fort, and good things have been happening in Vieux Fort. However, more good things need to be happening in Vieux Fort, and in a more consistent fashion. So what does it takes? Well, take the Literary Night, for example. How did it happen? Well, a few of us responded to a call to let us try to always have an activity in Vieux Fort to match the national calendar of events. That was late November last year. The rationale being that the consistent hosting of such activities will help strengthen Vieux Fort as a community, instill confidence in the future of the town, and enable residents to take pride and ownership of their community.
    So next time a national event goes by and Vieux Fort is not represented, and you say how come Vieux Fort is so dead, nothing happens in Vieux Fort? For the answer, look at the mirror. For if things are not happening in Vieux Fort, it means no one in Vieux Fort, no group in Vieux Fort, came together to stage activities. It means you didn’t do anything to help make it happen. It is people that make things happen; no matter what community, in what country, in what planet, it is people or intelligent beings who come together to make things happen. The Literary Night happened because a few persons (5 to be exact) came together to make it happen and then solicited the participation of other persons and the broader community. By participation I mean the performers, the sponsors, the volunteers, and you the audience. We all played a part.

    So the moral of the story is, let us all become the ball to ensure that our communities, wherever we reside, thrive and progress. Let us adopt a “can do and let’s do it attitude.” For it is together we can make our communities a better place to live and raise our children. For the answers, don’t look at the politicians, don’t look at the government, don’t look at your neighbors, look at the mirror.

    P.O.S. Trinidad (Sonique Solutions) – The latest addition to Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival fete calendar, the ultra premium inclusive event ‘Finesse’ proved that first-rate feting experiences were not only confined to the boundaries of Port-Of-Spain as it unveiled an all new, chic Soca music-filled soiree set to the backdrop of the nation’s Central Range.

    Finesse made its debut last weekend at the picturesque La Vega Estate in Gran Couva. Several attendees hailing from various parts of T&T eagerly came out ready to party to pulsating music but also to experience one of the country’s most renowned nature spots creatively transformed into a true Soca paradise.

    The poolside event was produced by events outfit Green House Entertainment which is known for its signature cooler party ‘Cooler Park’. The producers pulled out all the stops to create a relaxing yet festive Carnival mood within the lush, secluded ambiance.

    The fete offered a culinary mix which stood up to true all-inclusive event standards and represented the eclectic tastes of partiers in attendance. Matching this was the collection of top shelf liquor and beverages which was available at the various bar stations strategically placed across the venue.

    Most notably, Finesse featured the newest premium spirit on the market, Meukow Cognac.

    In between trips to the multiple foods and bar stations, the fashion forward feters congregated at the poolside dance floor to party with the event’s cast of excitable DJ’s.

    On the live entertainment side, Finesse brought forward performances by DJ turned Soca artiste 5 Star Akil who had the crowd moving to his 2016 smash “Different Me” along with classics such as “Partier”, “To Meh Heart” and “Noise”.

    2014 Groovy Soca Monarch Kerwin Dubois continued the onstage action with his catalogue of current and previous hits which sent the audience into a state of Soca ecstasy.

    Rounding off the entertainment card was the performance by 2015 Chutney-Soca Monarch Ravi B and the band Karma. Ravi along with co-singers Krystal Khayne and Abbyshi and his young band of musicians kept the crowd dancing and singing to a collection of old school Chutney and Soca favourites combined with 2016’s biggest Carnival tunes.
    Regarding her event experience at ‘Finesse’ one patron shared, “I enjoyed the fete and all its exceptional features and entertainment but I particularly love the use of La Vega for this event and I’d certainly want the promoters to put together another similar party experience in this neck of the woods”.

    By all accounts Finesse scored major points on the 2016 feting scale due to its creative Carnival vibe, premium party atmosphere, top notch entertainment and gorgeous venue.

  • Recording Artist K’Coneil Releases “Hot Like You” (90s Don Dada Riddim)

    International recording artist K’Coneil has released “Hot Like You”, the lead single off his upcoming yet untitled 2016 EP with the hit bound single on the 90’s Don Dada Riddim has been blazing both the airwaves and dance floors.
    The song written by K’Coneil, his long time writing partner Reggaetwin Gairy Blake ad Seannizle, glorifies independent women who are confident in their “hotness” factor regardless of society’s views and standards. “You got The body of an angel Mi nah lie you summin turn up. You’re sexy figure is amazing Anywhere you touch burn up, You buy anything you want, You no cotch a gal yard. Cause it pay for with the na na, You no park like trailer pon no corner, You no par with gal dem wa mash up the partner” Sings K’Coneil.
    Speaking on the song’s inspiration, he recalled an earlier encounter “The day that I was on my way to the studio to work on the song; I stopped at a gas station to get some water and I saw a super hot girl pull up in a nice vehicle; I would have offered to pumped her gas but I was in Kingston and it’s full service so I couldn’t, that’s how hot she was! So it was just right place right time because I was writing something else the night before and I threw it out and started afresh after seeing that girl. She’s probably hearing the song as we speak and don’t even she inspired it. I hope to see her again one day…”

    Featured among Grammy-award winner Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Konshens among other notables of dancehall and reggae music, is a feat that K’Coneil humbly takes in stride “Being on a Riddim with some of dancehalls greatest is not just a honor but a blessing I think I told Seanizzle thanks over a million times already lol”

    A video for “Hot Like You” is in the works, and just like the anticipated EP, it will deliver the essence of the genre fluid K’Coneil.

    K’Coneil

    Born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, K’Coneil was raised in the village of Granville in Montego Bay. It was there amid family and friends that at an early age he was indoctrinated in music by singing in the church at the urging of his beloved grandmother.

    Coming from a musical family, music was embedded in his DNA, but not to be stereotyped; education played a major importance in the young artist life. At the age of 16 he migrated to the United States on a full soccer scholarship where he attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. But there was no denying his musical calling, and while in college K’Coneil joined a group called GAM (Godly Anointing Men) who would go onto performing at the prestigious Madison Square Garden.

    Music bridges people around the world. No matter one’s place of birth, economic class or skin color, it all evokes a human feeling and K’Coneil’s is no different. A vocalist influenced by his reggae roots and the Musical melting pot of his urban surroundings in New York City, K’Coneil sounds admittedly, doesn’t classify by the industry standards. Rather than to be boxed, K’Coneil created his own lane of sonic perfection, that can only be classified as being “genre fluid,” by comfortably fusing rhythms, genres and sounds from Reggae, Dancehall, R&B and Pop. Honing his musical craft by writing and voicing for notable producers, K’Coneil has received heavy rotation on various worldwide airwaves, while touching the stage alongside some of the biggest name in music.

    Jammed with 12 soca gems, House Of Soca is spiced with all flavors of the soca genre and features a slew of top groovy anthems including “Rental,” “In Trouble” featuring soca queen Alison Hinds, “Meet Trouble” and “Loosen De Chain.”

  • Monty Alexander & Friends: Frank Sinatra at 100 with Kurt Elling for Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center

    At 17 years old, a serendipitous encounter with Frank Sinatra and his long-time pal Jilly Rizzo changed the trajectory of Jamaican-born pianist Monty Alexander’s career forever: Alexander would soon become the house pianist for the famed Jilly’s club in New York City and develop a unique relationship with its most famous patron.

    Sinatra’s centennial elicits fond memories of Alexander’s time spent at the intimate hangout, and with the help of GRAMMY® Award-winning and DownBeat Critics Poll-dominating singer Kurt Elling, he will share stories and anecdotes from a treasured and rare perspective. A masterful pianist, Alexander’s career spans five decades and includes collaborations with some of the most important figures in jazz, like Milt Jackson, Miles Davis, and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as an illustrious recording career as a leader.

    National touring artist Elling, referred to by The Guardian as, “a kind of Sinatra with superpowers,” will provide his vocal interpretation of the classic tunes, of which he is no stranger to. Joining the duo will be bassist Hassan Shakur, guitarist Frank Vignola, hand drummer Robert Thomas Jr., and drummer Dennis Mackrel. This early, nurturing period in which the young pianist and an iconic hero spontaneously mused on saloon songs up into the wee hours of the night is a Valentine’s weekend treat sure to satisfy both nostalgic and contemporary tastes.

    Sinatra songs featured in the concert will include “Young at Heart,” “I’ve Got You Under my Skin,” “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” “Luck, Be a Lady Tonight,” “The Summer Wind,” and “Fly Me to the Moon.”

  • THE SAUDICKA DIARAM TV SHOW TO DEBUT IN THE USA

    The Saudicka Diaram Show (SDS), a weekly entertainment and lifestyle talk show in Jamaica has inked a deal with Caribbean International Network (CIN-TV). CIN TV is a television channel in the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) watched by over half-a-million Caribbean nationals on channels 73 and Verizon Fios 26.
    “I am grateful for this opportunity as I will have a much larger platform. My work will have a wider reach and different audiences will gain access to the entertainment and lifestyle issues aired on my show. I will be able to ventilate the entertainment and lifestyle issues prevalent in the Caribbean and specifically Jamaica before a wider audience. I have received emails from hundreds of fans living overseas wanting to know when the show would reach across borders and get to their living rooms. The plan is to start in NY and then take the show to other markets” Diaram informed.

    Stephen Hill, CEO of CIN TV had high praises for Diaram saying that she has the most popular talk show on Television Jamaica (TVJ).

    “She is Jamaica’s Oprah Winfrey and brings an engaging presence and her upcoming airing on CINTV will attract another large audience to the CIN platform. The personalities and topics that she covers will entertain the large Caribbean audience in New York” he said.

We have explored the surge of cosmetic surgery in Jamaica where we featured celebrity plastic surgeon ‘Doctor Miami.’ We have also secured an intimate interview with Olympian Novlene Mills about her journey and battle with breast cancer. The issue of ‘fluffy women’ was a big hit. We also featured former dancehall artiste Miss Ting who is now a Christian and preparing for a career in the gospel music industry and most recently I sat down with iconic selector Sky Juice who shared his remarkable contribution to dancehall.

    My team and I hope to continue bring refreshing, exciting content to television, while showcasing topics and issues that are universal” Diaram said.

  • Jamaican Producer Celebrates Success At Soca Monarch Finals In Trinidad

    Popular Disc Jockey turned producer has yet another reason to continue celebrating the unpredicted success of his immensely popular Jambe-An riddim. The riddim has made its way to the finals of International Soca Monarch competition in Trinidad and Tobago.

    One of the two Trinbagonian artistes featured on the Jambe-An riddim, Pternsky secured a spot in the finals of the highly anticipated Soca competition. His song, ‘Non Stop’ has been receiving tremendous support since its release. This may very well be the first time that a Jamaican production has secured a spot in the competition. While the producer had high hopes for his production he is still amazed. “I didn’t expect Trinidad and Tobago to accept the riddim so well” he shared.

    When the producer decided to allow two Trinbagonian artistes (Pternsky and Shurwayne Winchester) to record on the dancehall dominated riddim, his hope was for the songs to represent the idea behind the name of the production; Jambe-An. His aim was to create a fusion of Caribbean rhythms made in Jamaica with the Caribbean in mind = Jambe-An.

    As he prepares to journey to Trinidad and Tobago to indulge in Carnival just as he has done for some 10 years the feeling he is experiencing is a tad bit different. He is excited to witness Pternsky in action at the International Soca Monarch competition; “I’ve been seeing and hearing the reviews and I am ready to see it first-hand.”
