It's been a staple in the T&T Carnival for several years and has grown into the biggest show of each Carnival season. 

And Machel Montano delivered once again in Machel Montano 2019 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium last Monday.

Guardian Media's Abraham Diaz captured these images.

Machel comes to Blue Diamonds’ rescue

So­ca star Machel Mon­tano has come to the res­cue of an un­spon­sored steel­band which had been strug­gling to pre­pare for the Panora­ma com­pe­ti­tion.

Af­ter read­ing the Sun­day Guardian’s ar­ti­cle Di­a­monds in the rough high­light­ing the plight of George Street-based Blue Di­a­monds Steel Or­ches­tra, Mon­tano de­cid­ed to help.

Yes­ter­day Machel’s moth­er, Eliz­a­beth “La­dy” Mon­tano, met with the band’s cap­tain Wayne St Clair Babb and sec­re­tary Ju­dith Cham­bers to de­ter­mine ex­act­ly how the Machel Mon­tano Foun­da­tion for Great­ness will as­sist.

Machel launches 2019 album, road march song

Soca artiste and reigning Road March champion Machel Montano launched his 2019 album and Road March contribution at The Residence lounge at One Woodbrook Place Thursday night.

This is a clip at the very beginning where he sang a part of the tune, well below its actual tempo before addressing his audience.

The full album and song were released on the airwaves on Friday.

Machel supports separate Carnival for Tobago

Road March winner Machel Montano has thrown his support behind the initiative for Tobago to have its own Carnival.

Since 2011, there have been calls for Tobago to have its own Carnival instead of having celebrations the same time as Trinidad.

Montano gave his take on the issue during his performance at the Call to Paradise premium all-inclusive event at the Magdalena Grand Beach Resort on Saturday.

Montano urged those in authority to be brave and grasp the opportunity for Trinidad and Tobago to have separate Carnivals on each island.
