Groovy Soca Preliminary
This is the first of three rounds for the Groovy Soca Monarch. Groovy soca style focuses quite a bit on the music melody. It features sensual vocals over mid-tempo rhythms (around 115 beats per minute). The phrasing differs from traditional kaiso as the melodic lines are shorter. The marriage of lyrics and music encourages you to sway and groove, rather than jump and prance as in power soca.
