SOCA music

I love Trinis, the people and their culture. Trinidadians are a happy bunch. If you are willing to drink rum, jump carnival/play mas  (wine) and willing to try a roti, doubles or shark and bake, then you can be friends with any Trini. In college, my friends were Trinidadians while my brother hung out with Jamaicans. Definite different personalities. Let's just say I was bouncing off the walls, he was holding up the walls. Trinidad women are articulate and outgoing, the men are charming! xoxoxo.

... Since I love TRINIDAD Carnival,
SOCA is the "Music of Trinidad and Tobago"
Soca is a form of dance music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago from calypso music. It is what R&B is to Soul music. It originally combined the melodic lilting sound of calypso with insistent percussion (which is often electronic in recent music) and local chutney music.  Soca music has evolved in the last 20 years primarily by musicians from various Anglophone Caribbean countries including Trinidad, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, United States Virgin Islands, The Bahamas, Dominica, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Jamaica.

Soca music is "jump up" music. It's a mixture of East Indian riddims, African riddims and calypso. During Carnival, they fete (party), jump in the streets and soca is the driving force.
