– an event celebrating  the power of Soca. 

LIVE FROM TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Soca Music’s Hottest Young Star Swappi 4D LIVE

TORONTO, ON – On OCTOBER 12, 2012, Dr. Jay de Soca Prince, most recognized for his signature radio show “Socatherapy” on Toronto’s G 98.7 FM as well as Section Leader from 16-time Toronto Carnival winning Saldenah Mas, is introducing a new event series to his long list of successful Soca fetes and parties.  In honour of the dedication and long-time support of the Louis Saldenah masqueraders, their year-end Appreciation Fete will take place at the launch of SOCA IS ME – a new evening of Soca that celebrates the power Soca music has had on the Caribbean community and those that have grown to love it as part of Toronto’s Caribbean diaspora.

“Soca has been the defining music of my life, and as the music crosses into other genres, I recognize the true power of Soca.   Soca is me, but not because I bring Mas or because my family is from the Caribbean.  Soca is ME because it’s great music – and if you love great music, then Soca is you too.”  – Dr. Jay

The pilot event will feature the blazing young Trinidadian artiste Swappi who burst onto the scene in 2010 with “Nah Go Play” and who in 2012 had enormous success with songs like “Bucket” and “Bubble on a DJ”.   Swappi is an energetic performer and famously encourages females from the crowd to come on stage to show off their best “bubble”.   Other music will be provided by Dr. Jay, Renegade Squad and members of The New KOS (Kingdom of Soca).

Event: SOCA IS ME (ft. Swappi)
Date: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012
Location: The Guvernment, 132 Queens Quay East
Time:  Doors open at 10:00 p.m.

Admission:  $20/advanced tickets.  $25/door entry.  FREE for Saldenah Masqueraders before midnight. 

Tickets to this event may be purchased at

Documentary Duo throws Fundraiser to Feed Your Soul – Oct. 14, 2012

Music, Art and more to celebrate launch of documentary.

TORONTO, ON – When Sonia Khan and Ghazala Malik set out to produce their documentary on Sufi Music, they knew they faced a big challenge. Both born in Pakistan, they knew that everyone at home was familiar with the genre, but in North America? They were faced with blank stares. Instead of feeling discouraged by the lack of knowledge, they were energized as it proved to them that this documentary was definitely needed

“When people in the West hear ‘Pakistan’, it automatically conjures up images of war, strife, and extremism” says Khan, the Executive Producer of Sufi Soul Searching. “We wanted to show this other side; the side that celebrates inclusiveness, spirituality, and of course music. People can spend an entire day dancing and singing at a mosque and it’s an amazing bonding experience to witness
and participate in. As we set out to raise funds for our documentary, we realized that throwing a fundraiser would be an amazing way to educate people about the music. A way to give them a taste of what to expect.”

The duo brainstormed ideas with friends and came up with the concept of “Sunday Soul”, a family friendly afternoon of music, art from established and up and coming South Asian talent, and of course various door prizes. When they started to approach people for assistance, the response was more than they could’ve hoped for.

“Once they heard the concept, people just started donating! It was really great to see how enthusiastic people were. Every penny from ticket sales will go towards the production. We couldn’t ask for anything more. Well, except for people to buy tickets!”

Each ticket can be redeemed for a pass to Eka Yoga Centre and also doubles as an automatic entry into the raffles.

With prizes that include a yoga package, and original work of art from Fourth Eye Gallery, and more, Sunday Soul will be held at Pacha Lounge (1305 Dundas Street West) on Sunday, October 14 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Music by the Techno Shaman.
Hosted by Deana Sumanac (CBC TV, The National)
