Default Any soca lovers?

Just wondering....listening to machel now. I just wanna go dance..dammit. Listening to this at work is probably what is like drinking at work.

One of these years I'm going to carnival! (trinidad)

I love soca. I listened to it more when I was in kenya than now. I should get back into it.

That's the problem, you want to dance immediately you hear it, but not appropriate at work LOL!

I'm surprised no one has responded!

Listened to Soca growing up. We play it at family parties. I can't really dance anymore, so I save my limitations for when we have the parties. You have to dance when you hear it!

Not familiar with any of the artists, but I love the beat. It's common to hear it in NYC actually. I didn't think it was common to hear it down south. I never hear it when I go to Charleston.

Love soca! It's pretty much all I listen to when I workout and since the tempo is so fast it makes me work harder. My friends and I always go dancing when we have Caribana here in Toronto.

I actually heard they have a socacise aerobics classes now! Sounds like a fun workout.

Is "Flag Party" by Super Blue soca music? It works way better than caffeine on those dull workdays!

Heard some Allison Hinds, Rupee and Machel on my way home from school. It's definitely carnival season, the aerobics classes are fully

But of course! 'Tis the season!

There is no way I could listen to it at work and get anything done though!

We're thinking of going back for carnival 2015.

It's not too common but there is a good west indian population in Atlanta, particularly in the suburb I'm from but it's sorta farther out and sketchy for my city friends who are not used to that environment. I found a good place in the city(that feels safe) that plays real reggae and soca. I went last Saturday and got my bf(who grew up in miami and never heard of soca) into it as well. Our fav song not is bruk it down by mr vegas. I only wish I could really dance like a west indian gyal!

It's big in central and south fl as lots of guyanese/trini people live there(orlando, hollywood, miami). I've been to the carnival in Miami twice and it's a yearly thing for me now.

You are so lucky..you can go to Queens if you want the real deal. Maracas is really popular. They always throw the after party soca show in south beach after the parade on Sunday.

I could work out so much better if I found an instructor that played real good soca. I'm not into the zumba music as much.

Caribana is my next goal..always wanted to go there too.

You should definitely try and come down for Caribana one year. I would suggest booking a hotel way in advance because they tend to go fast. There is public transportation you can take although I usually just drive despite the terrible parking situation downtown, I rather pay the money than take public transportation. The parade is great! But it's HOT that time of year so make sure you are prepared for the heat and the HUGE crowds. Also if you find a concert you want to go to ahead of time get your tickets in advance because they mark the price up afterwards. Most clubs have concerts or events going on for a few days. I also like going over to centre island the day after the parade, they usually have a good concert at the park. They also have boat cruises around the Toronto harbour, those can be a lot of fun as well I've been on a few.

please tell me some good song title and artists (with clean lyrics) so i can download. it's not a genre popular where i am but i love music from different parts of the world. i could use some in my zumba classes. we learned soca moves but there have only been a few soca based songs released through zumba fitness.

Cool thanks but girll, I don't drive at all when I come to party because I am drinking all day! I have no problems with public transportation. If cabs are available even better. But are the events generally close to each other? The thing that sucks about Miami is taht everything is far apart and there is no good public transportation and it's too expensive to cab it if you're doing it most of the time.

Check out Machel Montano and Allison Hinds.
David Rudder - "Trini to de Bone" is a classic.
Older tunes like "Hot, Hot, Hot", "Swinging Engine", "Footsteps," "Jump and Wave." I'll try to think of more.

Well it really depends on where you want to go, some venues may not be too far from each other and others may be further. We do have a few club areas so if you are checking those out it wont be far to walk if you focus on one area. If you go to bigger events where some of the bigger performers are going to be like government night club which use to be a huge warehouse that has been turned into a club then that isn't too close to anything its by the water front, I've been there a few times and by 7am when the party wasn't over my shoes and legs just gave out on me!
Getting a cab may be a bit difficult but I'm sure at that time there will be more available, between cabs, subways, busses and street cars I'm sure you will be able to work something out, a lot of people take public transportation. Usually my hubby drives even when we are with a group because he doesn't drink and I do which works out lol. Caribana isn't really his thing but I tell him he can't spend all his time cooped up at the firm so I drag him along and he makes sure no guys push up on me and start wining without permission because it happens...a lot
Have you ever been here before? There are so many things to do in the summer but if you come for Caribana that will take up all your time. Just make sure you have tickets before hand and you plan out where you want to go...that may be my overly organized habit talking but it's still a good idea.
