National Calypso Queen Competition | Trinidad & Tobago 2017

Miss Sasha Ann Moses is the New National Women's Calypso Monarch for Trinidad & Tobago 2017 Carnival Festival

The National Calypso Queen for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2017 was held on Monday February 13th. with a new National Calypso Queen crowned.

Congratulations are extended to all the ladies who participated in last nights competition. In the end only one person emerged as winner. Miss Sasha Ann Moses unleashed her song entitled 'The Main Witness' to wrest the crown away from the other participants.

It is amazing that this show does not garner the prominence that it deserves. The women singers are some of the best in Trinidad and Tobago but don't seem to get the respect they deserve. Maybe the award recently won by Calypso Rose may cause the powers that be to finally promote this show properly and show some respect to the ladies. 

The show was sponsored by the National Women’s Action Committee (NWAC) and took place at  Queens Hall in St. Anns, Trinidad.

There isn't much information available about the show since it was not broadcast live on the radio or via an Internet feed. Only a published notice of the results was made available today on facebook. Let's hope that next year's show will receive better promotion and broadcast capabilities.

  1. Alana Sinnette
