Fresh off of a successful 2013 T&T Carnival season, Caribbean music band Ravi B and Karma won over thousands of patrons at the annual mega-concert ‘Clash of the Titans 3’ which was recently held at the Guyana National Stadium.
According to Guyanese media house ‘The Guyana Times’ the band tore the roof off the venue with a show-stealing 45 minute set and was undoubtedly the highlight of a fantastic evening which also included performances by Guyana’s Terry Gajraj and Adrian Dutchin as well as Trinidad and Tobago’s JW and Blaze, Rick Ramoutar and K.I. with JMC 3Veni.
Karma frontman Ravi B shared his delight at his band remaining ‘Clash of the Titans’ champions for yet another year, “We feel so excited and blessed to cop this title once again, but more importantly we are very thankful for all the love and support we have received from the people of Guyana throughout our careers. We have been on tour there for the past 4 weeks and we truly appreciate the unique energy and embracing nature of the Guyanese people”.
Carnival 2013 was indeed a landmark season for Karma as vocalists Ravi B, Nisha B and Gregory Ayuen received public endorsements from several local and regional entertainers both on and off social media. One such endorsement was an invitation to Ravi by Soca King Machel Montano to do a feature performance in the prestigious ‘Machel Monday’ concert spectacular. Ravi rode this success all the way to the finals of the International Groovy Soca Monarch in which he placed 4th and also earned the 3rd place spot for his presentation in the overall competition with the monster hit “Prescription”.
Always one to be a trendsetter, risk-taker and to try new things for the entertainment of his fans, Ravi, who this year unleashed the now famed ‘Lizard’ haircut (a hairstyle which was copied by fellow artistes and fete patrons throughout the season) collaborated with his band mates to be the first group of Caribbean musicians to execute a hilarious video meme of the popular ‘Harlem Shake’.
After wrapping up a few local engagements in the next couple of weeks, the band members will be back on the road representing T&T at such events as the GBM showcase in New York and headlining major Easter weekend shows which include ‘Unforgettable’ the concert at Mirage Banquet Hall in Toronto and the ‘Bodow Fete’ at Club Naked, Miami.
