New Video - Machel Montano HD - 'Mr. Fete'

I don't know about you, but this video makes me want to be in a party right now! Machel shows off his utter control of the crowd and has the frenzied masses hanging on his every lyric (Some...hanging off of his belt buckle!)

Its Official....No Bunji or Fay Ann for Soca Monarch

Two of T&T's strongest Soca performers and multiple Soca Monarch winners, Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons will not be attempting to win for 2k12.

They mentioned it on their facebook page last week and then announced it publicly during their performance at "Fire Fete." (See below for the full 1hr performance video. Bunji tells us with lyrics starting at 39:10)

They didn't officially say why they were refusing to enter this year's competition, but there might be some clues in Bunji's performance for sure.

For more insight into their announcement and even some possible predictions for this year's international Soca Monarch in their abscence, check out this article from the Trinidad Guardian. Do you have a favourite for the Power and Groovy categories this year?  Let us know in the comment section below.
