Nintus is 2012 Calypso Monarch

The Calypso Crown Jewels will remain in the southern vault for yet another year, however Nintus Magre will be the new wearer of the items.

Outgoing and two time Monarch from the same Tent Menell, was out done by Blaze and Walleigh. Blaze in particular has been solid and has steadily improved on his material, performance and rendition throughout the season making critical decisions like changing his hook line and focusing only on pure Calypso after the Groovy Soca preliminary.

Superman HD is Soca Monarch 2012

Power Soca Monarch 2012 - Kwency "Superman HD" GriffithKwency Griffith, A.K.A. Mr. Pringles, A.K.A. Superman HD, broke out of bacchanal jail about 3:30am Sunday morning and stole the 2012 Power Soca Monarch Crown and Trophy.

Babonneau Remain Steel Pan Champs

Babonneau Steel Orchestra

None of the Steel Orchestras competing against the 2011 Large or Small Panorma Champions from Babonneau managed to steal away the title form that community.

In the Small Band Category, Harmonites Steel Orchestra Defending was able to comfortably hold off a challenge to its Panorama title. A couple hours later, large Babonneau Steel Orchestra had to work a bit harder to retain the bragging rights to the ultimate Panorama title.

Fond Memories .. Kes the Band

I first saw Kes the Band perform back in 2006 at Club Bananas in Grenada. At that time, their first single 'Stay With Me', had just been released.'Stay With Me', a smooth, groovy tune was a household favourite, and the turnout that evening was massive; locals and nearby St. George's university students came out in droves just to hear the Band perform that hit.
