CANADA’S AWARD-WINNING SOCA MUSIC AMBASSADOR DR. JAY INTRODUCES “SOCA IS ME”
– 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).
