Road March

Petition launched for People's Choice Road March

An on­line pe­ti­tion has been cre­at­ed call­ing for the au­thor­i­ties to es­tab­lish a Peo­ple's Choice Award for next year's Car­ni­val in light of Kees Di­ef­fen­thaller's Sa­van­nah Grass not win­ning this year's Road March ti­tle.

This year's Road March was won by the trio of Machel Mon­tano, Bun­ji Gar­lin (Ian Al­varez) and Skin­ny Fab­u­lous (Gamal Doyle) af­ter their song Famalay was played across judg­ing points 346 times.

Sa­van­nah Grass came sec­ond af­ter it was played 207 times.

'Soca Kingdom' is Road March 2018

Machel Montano and Austin "Superblue" Lyons have won this year's Road March with "Soca Kingdom'.

The song was played 336 times at judging points.

Iwer George's  "Savannah" came in second with 140 plays while Patrice Roberts was third with "Sweet Fuh Days", played 112 times.

The result was announced by the Trinbago Unified Calypso Organisation (TUCO).

This is Montano's 9th Road March title and Superblue's 10th.

Only late calypsonian, Kitchener, has more Road March titles, with 11.

 

Road March "Full Extreme" played almost 500 more than closest competitor

As expected, Ultimate Reject's "Full Extreme" is the 2017 Road March.

The song, led by Edghill "MX Prime" Thomas, was played 556 times.

It was played 484 times more than its closest competitor.

Machel Montano's "Your Time Now" was second with 72 plays and Montano's "Beat It" was played 18 times.

This victory eclipses "Parlance" by JW and Blaze, which won the 2010 Road March with 417 plays over Fay Ann's "True Lies", which was played 40 times.

The Road March is determined by the number of times a song is played at the judging points.
