Independence Mix - 50 Years of Carnival Tunes

Independence Mix - 50 Years of Carnival Tunes

Playing tracks by

Ras Shorty, David Rudder, Sparrow, DUKE, Lord Kitchener and more.

We get to play Soca for 1 hr every Wednesday on CJSW yet this week we ambitiously attempt to celebrate Trinidad and Tobago's 50th independence with 50 years of Carnival music. We decided to do so by playing the most popular tunes from Carnivals past, and so Drew, Carrie and Anthony squeeze in as many Trinidad Carnival Roadmarch tunes as possible to celebrate the milestone. Inevitably ALL 50 can't be played in 1 hr. There are a few 'Machels', 'Kitcheners', 'Superblues', etc. plus a few Roadmarches from the 1960s that had to be left out (we did add 1962's 'Maria' by Lord Blakie at the end of the show), but what does get on-air is a collection of undeniable hits.

Enjoy. And Happy Independence day!

(Please ignore the fact that Drew and Anthony clearly forget which band Rudder and Tambu used to sing for. Booo!)

Shout out to some of T&T's biggest Soca names as they release "Love Army" for the 50th anniversary celebration:
