Saint Lucia’s 2018 Groovy & Power Soca Monarch preliminaries competition will take place on Friday 29 June from 6pm, on the grounds of the National Cultural Centre in Castries. The event will see up to sixty artists, split evenly between the two categories, perform to win their place in the semi-finals.

Thomas Leonce, CEO of Events Saint Lucia, said, “The response to registration is a clear indication of how magnetic this genre is to the masses. This artform, with its roots in Carnival, has evolved over the years, becoming one of the most viable of genres not just during the carnival season, but year-round. Carnival acts as the platform for the launch of new soca music in preparation for an international stage, and ECSL is thrilled to facilitate this process as the producer for these major events”.
