Grenada Soca Monarch 2019
Grenada Soca Monarch is the annual soca music competition, the finals of which are held on Carnival Friday. Contestants in the event vie for two separate crowns or titles, the Soca Monarch (aka the Power Soca Monarch) for uptempo songs (135 bpm and above), and Groovy Soca Monarch for slower-paced songs (134 bpm and below). The Soca Monarch competition has become one of the most anticipated events for Grenada’s Carnival over the years.
The Power and Groovy Soca Monarch Finals will be at the National Stadium on Aug 9th, 2019.
The Power Soca category of the Soca Monarch competition features Grenada’s top soca artistes along with eager up and comers delivering uptempo songs (135 bpm and above) with vigorous stage performances. All contestants vie for the glory of being crowned the king or queen of soca in Grenada.
The Groovy Soca Category of the Soca Monarch competition features a more mellow side of the usually energetic genre that is soca music. Artistes compete with slower-paced songs (134 bpm and below) crafted to woo the judges and audience with lilting rhythms and melodies
