After Carnival 2018 Music Releases | Trinidad Soca Artistes

Soca music artistes release new music all year round and not just seasonally based on a territory carnival date. This is a good thing and it is something that Trinidad and Tobago artistes have embraced. They tour the World performing is carnivals in Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, United States and the Caribbean Basin. They take their Carnival hits with them but are now also releasing other songs 'out of season'; this is good for the genre, the singers and fans. This is not the current status for Calypso music that appears to be stuck in a rut... fixed to the Carnival experience only. Today we feature a list of 'out of season' carnival songs for Trinidad and Tobago artistes.

Why did we consider this list of songs?  Well, yesterday Instagram lit up with a "New Bunji Garlin Music Release"!  Well not exactly; the new music release was a Vincy Carnival music release making it, technically, a new music release for Trinidad and Tobago 2019. To avoid any misunderstanding we think that any Trinidad and Tobago artiste releasing new music after Trinidad and Tobago carnival 2018 can promote those songs for carnival 2019! Take note that Soca artistes out of Saint Vincent, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Antigua and Barbados all promote their their Summer Carnival releases for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival the following year... and why not do so?

Now having said that, we want to point out the following through this post. Songs released by Trinidad and Tobago artistes for other carnivals in the Caribbean Basin namely: Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada (Spice Mas), Barbados (Crop Over) and Antigua Carnival. We also have a list of songs released by Trinidad and Tobago artistes not related to any carnival in the region. 

We may not have listed all the songs released and may have placed some in the incorrect category; help us get it right! Please use the comment feature of this post to add songs or just comment on the list.
