Soca Vibes - Festival music of Trinidad and Tobago @ Alphabet City

  • Alphabet City 40 West North Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15212 United States (map)

Acoustic ensemble Soca Plus presents Soca Vibes, an acoustic celebration of the energized and spirited "soca" festival music of Trinidad and Tobago.

Soca blends Caribbean-style calypso with American soul music resulting in a truly unique flavor all its own. Where most of the music for Trinidad’s modern soca tunes rely heavily on pre-recorded backing tracks to serve as the band for vocal artists, Soca Plus re-creates these sounds through purely acoustic arrangements and live instrumentation. 

The ensemble features voices, violin, flute, acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, marimba, steel pan, and percussion— without losing any of the drive, energy or creative samples in the original works!
