SOCA competition makes a big come-back for Culturama

Eight competitors made the attempt for the Groovy Soca Monarch trophy and nine competitors tried to out perform each other in the Power Soca Monarch competition. The Bacchanalist Crew Band out of St. Kitts accompanied all singers.

But, there was something additionally special about this show, as Antonio ‘Abonatty’ Liburd, of the Culturama Committee, described, “This show last night was the first show to be put on by the Culturama Committee, since the soca monarch contest was removed from the calendar in 2002. So, we were basically trying to revive the soca monarch contest, which was once a part of the Culturama calendar.”

According to Abonatty, he was pleasantly surprised by the turnout to the show. “The show of support from the general public, from the audience, was a very good showing seeing that soca is not an established event on the Culturama calendar,” he explained.

Here are the position and points of the top competitors:
