‘Famalay’ wins Trinidad-Tobago Carnival Road March

Machel Montano

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Singer Machel Montano secured his tenth Road March title after a tune featuring Caribbean artistes won the competition here during the Carnival celebrations that ended here last week.
The Trinbago Unified Calypsonians’ Organization (TUCO) said that the tune “Famalay” featuring Montano, Bunji Garlin, who in 2013, won the Soul Train Award for Best International Performance and St. Vincent and the Grenadines singer “Skinny Fabulous” had outplayed Kees Dieffenthaller’s “Savannah Grass” during the two-days of revelry.
The song was produced by Dominican Krishna “Dada” Lawrence featuring the island’s local music called “Bouyon”.
“It’s important that my productions have a “Bouyon Sound” because I’m from the island of Dominica … and it’s imperative that my sound reflect my culture. This bouyon sound is what sets Dada Muzic apart from the rest in this soca industry,” he said in an interview published before the Carnival celebrations here.
