Pic semis back to Stadium
Social commentary lovers will experience nostalgia in every sense of the word when the Pic-O-De-Crop Semi-Finals head back to the National Stadium for the first time in nearly ten years.
Event producer Adisa Andwele told reporters today at a Press conference that the show would take patrons back in time, and the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) had dubbed it a Kaiso Lime.
“It’s all in the process of revitalizing Pic-O-De-Crop. The semi-finals this year . . . has gone back home. As you know, the event usually starts at 7 p.m.; but, this year, we will be opening the doors at 5 p.m.
“It’s a lime; so don’t go home after work. Leave work and go straight there,” Andwele suggested.
He said Admiral Nelson had been brought on board to take patrons back in time, playing social commentaries from the very beginning.
“DJ Admiral is a connoisseur when it comes to kaiso; he is going to be taking us down memory lane, giving us some old calypsos, and he will talk about them.
“If you want to dance do so. But during that time, the aim is to learn a little bit about the calypsonians who sang the songs and so on,” Andwele explained.
Admiral will play the music right up until 7 p.m. when the competition begins.
Andwele encouraged all to come out and experience “a great night” come July 15.
