Some of the best DJs in Calypso and Soca are expected to come together for the first ever Christmas Soca Madness fete at the new Tudor Rose in Southall on Saturday 21st December 2013. These DJs
include DJ Rickman, DJ Selecta Spice, DJ Bones, DJ QT2 Hype and DJ Tate and will support dance sensation Muzik lil Muzik and the extraordinary Soca Monarch Triniboi Joocie.
Born and raised in Port of Spain, Trinidad, ‘Triniboi Joocie’, also known as Rodell Sorzano, is an up and coming UK soca artist, songwriter, musician and producer. He is known for his energetic and vibrant performances. The versatile nature of his music has allowed him to perform at a variety of high profile venues and events across the UK and internationally, including Crystal Clear Future’s Got Skillz Talent Competition, Leicester Carnival, Manchester Carnival, Bristol Carnival, London’s Notting Hill Carnival, Poetry in Motion (Embankment), and the O2 Arena (Leicester). He headlined at award-winning soca fete Soca Frenzy at the Scala in Kings Cross (London) and at Labor Day Carnival (New York), and competed in the 2010 UK Soca Monarch competition, placing second with his single Big Ting Dat.
Triniboi Joocie’s first album, Within De Soca Mix, was released in July 2010. The album has a blend of upbeat soca and some groovy tracks, and was a huge success during the 2010 carnival season. But music is not the only dream he’s chasing; in 2008 he was awarded a Performing Arts Scholarship to study at the well known De Montfort University in Leicester. His future looks bright.
With aspirations for his music to be known and recognised internationally within and beyond the soca arena, he is compelled to strive for excellence. He would also like to raise the awareness of soca throughout Europe, and eventually bring it back to his homeland of Trinidad. In the words of Triniboi Joocie himself… OGEEED!
