JW & Blaze - Trini Soca Madness
Trinidad and Tobago definitely knows how to throw a party!
Take it from JW and Blaze - 2 popular Trini radio/televsion personalities. Their Soca song Palance, is the "happiest music video ever set in an office", according to New York Magazine.
Yup, a Soca music video - set in an office.
Aside from accolades from the press, their song won the 2010 International Power Soca Monarch. The International Soca Monarch was established in 1993 with the aim to create an environment where Soca music could be exhibited on an international stage while simultaneously being enjoyed by fans of the genre. Since then, it has evolved from being a mere competition to an institution of the Carnival season premiering on the Friday of Carnival - Fantastic Friday - with mind blowing performances, and the best of the season’s artists.
We thought Office Boy was the awesomest music video set in an office, but I think Palance may just take the cake...who's ready for Carnival?!
