The 'Best Of 2015' Year End Show

As we come to the end of 2015, the crew recaps the biggest songs out of ALL of this year's major Caribbean Carnivals. Trying to pick the best of all the songs for 2015 means going back to songs that were released as far back as 2014 Summer, as tunes can catch a '2nd wind' when they reach Trinidad for Carnival the following year. In short, if a song was in HEAVY ROTATION from February - August 2015 we considered it! There were literally HUNDREDS of tunes to pick from and these are each of our personal choices. 

(Songs released after that will be judged when we see how they perform in 2016.) The CalgarySoca crew give their picks for: Best Groovy Song, Best Power Song, Break Out Artiste, Artiste of the Year and Tune of the Year. Enjoy!  (*Note: Majesti stated in the show that Voice and Young Voice were the same artist which we realize now is NOT correct. Our apologies.  Voice = Aaron St Louis while Young Voice = Kevin James)
