http://www.resonancefm.com & 104.4fm:London Wednesday 11th May 6-7pmUK time London Diaspora Live looks behind the scenes at Carnival this week.
Notting Hill Carnival is not that far off and everyone is getting ready - especially the Calypsonians. DJ Debbie (Golt) talks to two brilliant artists who will be performing in the studio as well. First off, Junior Monarch Kiki B, who at 14 is already a cutting edge lyricist raring to go. And reigning UK Calypso Monarch and WOM@TT Best of British 2010 winner Alexander D. Great who has written for many other Calypso Tent winners and is a BBC Calypsonian in Residence - extemporising on the topics of the day. His 'overproof' lyrics and irresistible dance tracks are outstanding - especially 'Haiti'.
Both perform at the forthcoming WOM@TT Calypso/Soca special at The Tabernacle, Powis Square, London W11 2AY on Saturday 4 June. See http://www.womaatt.blogspot.com
Thanks for the info on this Resonance FM show, Debbie. Unfortunately I was a day late on this. In the future, I'll have to keep a better eye on your updates. Resonance FM has some wonderful stuff inaccessible elsewhere.
