Barbados: CROPOVER 2016 Soca Songs – 4 music videos
On November 30 Barbados celebrates its Golden Jubilee as an independent country so this Cropover Carnival promises to be one of the best.
Barbados holds its Cropover Carnival in July every year. Scores of songs are created , many becoming quite popular in the Caribbean and the Diaspora. There are basically two main competitions – Calypso featuring social commentary and SOCA featuring Dance music where winners are awarded cars and cash prizes. See 2016 calendar here
There is also the Cropover Carnival Parade on August Monday (August 1) at which the most popular Road March is selected – It looks like Peter Ram – All Ah We “2016 Soca” could win the Road March title this year (see below). Of course Rihanna will be in attendance as she does every year.
