King Sings for Super Blue in London

TUCO Tobago Chairman Ainsley King returned to Tobago last week after representing TUCO cultural events in London, England. King and Pan Trinbago’s President Keith Diaz were specially invited guests at the British Association of Steelband Pan Awards. This event was held at the ballroom of the London Holiday Inn Hotel. It was attended by pannists from all over Europe.

King also attended the Shades of Carnival Awards Ceremony at the Trinidad and Tobago High Commissioners Head Office in London. The event honours Caribbean artistes for their outstanding international artistic accomplishments.
King, in his position of TUCO Vice President, received an award on behalf of International Soca Monarch and National Road March Monarch, Super Blue who was absent from the function. After receiving the award, King gave greetings to the gathering and proceeded to sing his own composition ‘Caribbean Party’. He then went on to perform his interpretation of Super Blue’s 1980 Road March smash hit ‘Soca Baptist’. He received a standing ovation for that rendition.

The event also featured trade talks on cultural matters, with representatives from West Africa, China and Europe. “There is a strong possibility that opportunities will open for Tobago artiste in Europe, China and Africa. I have already confirmed with promoters in Europe for at least three Tobago based artiste to be contracted to perform in Europe next April,” said King. He noted, “The world is now a global village and the artistic expressions of nations, regions and continents will become more interconnected and thereby provide more opportunities to our local Tobago artiste who have a good product to offer the world.”
