Jaiga TC or Terrin Callendar is no stranger to the soca arena. He was the producer of the very popular Soca Stars show in Trinidad and Tobago. A show he created, he says, to preserve the art form. And, in 2017, he continues to do his part to preserve our soca artform by creating a cover tribute to Chris ‘Tambu’ Herbert called Free Up.
Jaiga began singing soca in 2009 because of an intense passion for Trinidad and Tobagonian culture, and a need to take soca across the world. Although he performs with Bunji Garlin and the Ground Empire, he also toured with Iwer George for 13 years. He credits his biggest inspiration as business people and moguls like Kanye West, because of his bold creativity and work ethic, and ex -Mayor of Port of Spain, John Rahael, who he believes really understood the workings of the media.
For the 2017 season, fans of Jaiga TC can expect nothing but the best from him.
