Masquerade | K Rich | Trinidad & Tobago 2014

If you forgot that Carnival is all about 'the Masquerade' then we have a new song from K Rich that is entitled "Masquerade" and this one drops into the Power Soca bowl of offerings for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2014 - we consider it the best Masquerade party anywhere in the World!

You may only have two days to celebrate on the street but with this offering from K Rich you will have another song to fete with and have a damn good time. This song deals with the typical themes of Carnival and especially Power Soca themes of rags and flags, 'behind d'truck' and jumping up and having a good time.

This one plays close to the script (Soca rhythm) and even though K Rich does not have that 'all powerful' voice that impacts the audience (like Machel or Super Blue) he delivered a good singing performance for this Power Soca contribution. 

This is a good offering but don't expect it to head to the top of the class. In the Power Soca category you have to pay your dues and people look to the big names for their offerings in the Power Soca category. Even the Carnival bands wait for songs from Machel, Super Blue, Problem Child, Fay Ann Lyons- Alvarez or some other established artist like Iwer George to hitch their 'on the street performances'. This is an uphill task for artists like K Rich but one cannot take anything away from this production - it is a good one.
