Soca from Way Back When

By Desi Brown

I was recently asked to do choreography for an Opening Number for Rex Nettleford Hall (UWI, Mona) Uber Fashion show dubbed ‘Retro Caribbean’. The song that was selected was Faluma by Alison Hinds. I had an immediate Soca rush! I felt that one all through my veins and I thought “WOW! Some Soca songs just never get old”. So, I thought, why not share my favourite old school Soca songs and help to jump start your weekend? Add them to your playlist. I promise you’ll thank me later.
