By MyVue News.com Staff Reporter

Basseterre, Monday, 15th November, 2021, (MyVue News.com)-Sixteen calypsonians took to the stage on Saturday night, as the first in a series of Calypso Tents kicked off at Carnival Village, Basseterre.

Among them were three artistes who have experienced the thrill of victory and know what it feels like to be crowned Senior Calypso Monarch for St. Kitts & Nevis.

These were King Socrates, King Astro and the reigning Monarch, Queeny-G.

On Saturday, the first performer on stage was Looshus, delivering a song titled, You-leaders of nations.

Other performers making an appearance were King Irvin, Bad Man Polo, Lady Carens-a newcomer, De Awesome Navigator, Lord Matt, Godfrey, Honesty, Quantash, I-Soursop, Caramel, Glenroy Blanchette and Lala.

Carnival officials have explained that three Tents will be held for three successive weekends, ending on Saturday, 27th November.

While no spectators were allowed for the first event, fans will be permitted to attend in person, when the next two are hosted this and next Saturday.

It was also the first official appearance for the All-Star Calypso Band, which has been introduced to back all calypsonians, performing in the Tents, and all stages of the Elimination and Final night of competition.

The band is headed by experienced musician, Wingrove Hicks Williams, who also leads the famous Grand Masters Band.

All Tents, said the Carnival Committee, will be streamed live on Youtube and Facebook and will be broadcast on ZIZ Radio and Television.
