Chutney music is a form of music indigenous to the southern Caribbean (primarily Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Suriname) which derives elements from Soca and Indian film songs. The music was created by Indo-Caribbean’s who were transported to the West Indies as indentured servants and later immigrants during the 19th century. We are proud to present the King’s of Chutney Music Roplal G and Adesh Samaroo from Trinidad. This up tempo Afro/Indian blend will thrill South Florida with its haunting rhythms.

A favorite among the ladies of the Caribbean is the very melodic and exciting LUST, consisting of Singing Melody, Thriller U, Luky D and Tony Curtis, four individual artists who have made their names as solo performers, came together to form one dynamic Group. Their stage performance is fantastic and will leave a long lasting impression on the audience.

The Florida Melody Makers Band and Code Red Band, are two local groups that will perform at the MAQ T 20 “Cricket Nights to Remember “. These two bands will cover top Reggae and Soca hits from the Caribbean.
