Barbados drops Soca Monarch from Crop Over


by Kejan Haynes (Trinidad Guardian) Barbados’ Crop Over will not feature a Soca Monarch Competition this year.

The announcement was made by CEO of the National Cultural Foundation Carol Roberts-Reifer. In her announcement, she said the decision was taken because the competition didn’t benefit the artistes in “pursuing a sustainable livelihood.”

“So, we have agreed that we will mount a joint campaign and project to assist artistes and producers with the production of soca tunes that can hold their own in any market,” Roberts-Reifer said.

nstead there will be a concert on August 6.

Trinidad and Tobago also dropped its Soca Monarch competition for Carnival 2023, but that was due to funding issues.
