International Soca Queens, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez and Alison Hinds, will dominate at the highly anticipated Soca concert “Carnival Mania,” to be held on the second night of the Caribbean Fever Irie Jamboree Music Festival on Saturday August 31st, at the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn.
Known for her women’s anthems, her signature locks and enviable waistline and stage antics, Alison Hinds is one of the most iconic female faces and voices in the Soca music genre. Hinds will bring the heat to "Carnival Mania" and has some hidden surprises for her fans.
“My fans can expect a quality show from the Alison Hinds show. My team and I are more than ready to hit the Barclays Centre with everything we have - the classics, as well as, newer songs plus energy and connection with the crowd! As the fans say, "De place tun up loud!!!!" stated the Bajan Soca Queen.
The London-born former lead singer of Square One, will represent for Barbados for the second time at the Barclays Center, when she delivers Soca favorites including “Raggamuffin," “Faluma,” "Togetherness,” “Thundah,” "Brace And Wine," "Explode," "Baddy"; her 2013 Crop Over single“Born Wit It”; and the internationally chart-topping female empowerment anthem, “Roll It Gal.”
As one of the most decorated female Soca singers and songwriters in the Caribbean, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez is the epitome of a Soca Queen. In 2009, Fay-Ann created history when she won the International Soca Monarch's Power and Groovy Monarch and the Carnival Road March, also becoming the first Soca artist to win all three titles in the same year. She did all the above while pregnant with her first child, becoming the first pregnant winner of any Soca title!
With over a decade in the Soca arena, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez is one of the most formidable female forces in the Caribbean. Fans can witness her deliver groovy hits "Heavy T Bumper," "Start Wining" and "We Doin' Dis Owah," in addition to high-energy performances of hits including "Get On," "Display" and "Meet Super Blue."
When these two Soca divas are not traveling the world spreading the gospel of Soca, they're busy maintaining their wife and mommy duties; while consistently making time for their philanthropic efforts and new music.
