Fire Fete celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012. This “mega showcase of cultural excitement” will be held on January 14 at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
The Trinidad Express reports that the upcoming Carnival starter will feature female songwriter and vocalist Nadia Batson and her new all-female band, SASS. “According to Batson’s camp, securing Fire Fete means that they’re certainly off to a great start as they too understand that this is the fete that the nation looks to for what’s big in the season. It will be Batson and her ladies’ chance to prove that they are up for the C2K12 challenge and according to Team SASS they are more than ready to bring the heat.”
Other artists taking a leading role in the Fire Fete are ‘Fireman’ Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons, and Asylum. Others include Kes the Band, Iwer George, Kerwin Du Bois, Super Jigga TC, and more.
