Miami Carnival on the horizon, new music ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s 2019 Carnival season is just about ready to take over the airwaves. Clearly aware of soca lovers’ need to feel the energy of the artistes who’ll make their feting experience a thrilling one, the young, energetic team of music producers at the Black Carpet Movement, have hit the ground running.

With a brand new riddim aimed at healing any negative vibes, and inspiring some goodness heading into the Greatest Show on Earth next year, the main man at BCM, Kyle Noel explained that the name, ‘Orange Peel’ was chosen to describe the riddim. According to Noel, “Orange Peel is a well known home remedy in Caribbean communities and households, and BCM certainly plans on delivering music that will heal wounds of the past, heading into C2K19”.

It’s a good play on words considering the fact that many, over the past few years, have expressed concern over Trinidad and Tobago’s damning crime rate, hopeful that good energy will once again prevail across the nation.

Miami based entertainer, Leon Coldero who is the Executive Producer of the riddim, continues this year with inroads onto the Soca circuit. While he has been known for many years as a heavyweight in the Soca Parang fraternity, he is by no means a stranger to soca. In fact, Leon Coldero’s name should be widely respected, having been a frontline member of two major Caribbean soca bands- those being Sound Revolution and subsequently over an eight- year period, Byron Lee and the Dragonaires.

This year, Coldero is busy at home in Trinidad, working with multiple producers and songwriters, eager to deliver to fans, music they’ll truly enjoy for Carnival 2019. Coldero’s single on the Orange Peel riddim is called, “Act Normal,” and with perfect melodic execution, Coldero undoubtedly nails it. He is joined by fellow artistes Imani Ray, who has a track called “Doh Stick”, Jerome who delivers,“Drunk Off Da Body” and finally, Leon’s 10-year-old daughter, JessaLee Marley who sings “Soca”, making the riddim a solid piece of musical work, truly worthy of credit.

The Black Carpet Movement is steadily apace, creating beats and melodies that many artistes are enjoying behind the scenes.

For Leon Coldero, working with this vibrant team of musicians and others like them, is imperative to ensuring that he remains a part of a cultural arena he loves with everything in him.
