Barbados boils the water in T.O.

Queen of Soca superstar Alison Hinds ruled the stage last Saturday with a hot show for the capacity Habourfront crowd at Barbados by the Water, celebrating the island’s 50 years of independence. Some fans camped out all day for a close-up view of Hinds who also performed with Li’l Rick. Quincy Bullen on the keyboard and Laff-it-Off rounded out the show. Gerard Richardson photos.
