Definitely one of the most anticipated chutney music event of the Carnival season, Chutney Brass attracts in excess of 15,000 patrons from all walks of life across Trinidad.
People from Guyana, Suriname, Canada, Holland, London and North America have been attending the event since its inception in 2002.
One of the main highlights of this year’s edition of the event is the performance of Rikki Jai who is now poised to create history with his popular song, “White Oak and Water” which is being counted as one of the main contenders for the Chutney Soca Monarch Title.
Produced by Randy Glasgow Productions, Chutney Brass has in its numerous years paved the way towards greater success for chutney and chutney soca artistes and bands that have crossed onto the mainstream via the Chutney Brass platform.
The event attracts not only patrons of East Indian decent but people of all ethnicities, especially residents of the Southland who grab at the opportunity to enjoy a major Carnival event in their own hometown instead of having to journey all the way to Port-of-Spain where everything seems to be.
Chutney Brass 2010 features nine chutney bands, including Dil-e-Nadan, Karma, SSL Melobugz, BMRZ, JMC 3 Veni, Divya, D Rampersad Indi Arts, Spread Pal Crew and T&TEC Gayatones.
Numerous local soca and chutney artist also perform as will several top cross over bands.
All chutney bands are required to present a repertoire that offers no less than 60 per cent chutney music.
