Growing Influence of Soca in Dubai

Event promoter and organizer Jonell Goodluck sheds light on the burgeoning influence of soca music in Dubai. While soca may not have historically commanded a massive following in the city, its presence is steadily gaining momentum, thanks in large part to the efforts of influential individuals within the soca industry. Goodluck emphasizes the pivotal role played by figures like the Crown Prince from Antigua, whose passion for soca music has catalyzed the growth of the genre in Dubai.

Cultural Diversity and Soca’s Rise

Dubai’s status as a melting pot of cultures has provided fertile ground for the proliferation of soca music. The city’s diverse populace, including a thriving West Indian/Caribbean community, has brought their cultural traditions to the fore, with soca music emerging as a vibrant component of Dubai’s cultural tapestry. Goodluck underscores the dedicated efforts of this community in organizing soca events and promoting the genre, thereby contributing to its increasing visibility and popularity in the city.

Influence of Key Figures

The influence of individuals like the Crown Prince cannot be overstated in the context of soca’s ascent in Dubai. Through their unwavering support and appreciation for soca music, these influential figures have paved the way for events like Brunch and Soca to flourish in the city. Their endorsement has not only elevated the profile of soca music but has also served to attract a broader audience, thereby fostering a deeper appreciation for the genre within Dubai’s cultural landscape.

The Phenomenon of Brunch and Soca

The Brunch and Soca event has swiftly emerged as a highlight on Dubai’s cultural calendar, drawing attendees from far and wide to partake in its unique blend of Caribbean culture, music, and gastronomy. Following its successful debut in Jamaica, where it captivated nearly 1,000 patrons with its electrifying ambiance, the event is poised to make waves in Dubai. Attendees can expect a sensory feast as they indulge in sumptuous brunch offerings while grooving to the infectious rhythms of soca music.

Debut in Jamaica: A Resounding Success

Against the backdrop of the Police Officers’ Club in St Andrew, attendees were treated to a mesmerizing spectacle of soca enthusiasts and casual listeners coming together to revel in the euphoria of the music. From the pulsating sounds of Olatunji’s steel-pan infused “Inventor” to Nailah Blackman’s infectious “Jam of the Year,” the dance floor remained a hive of activity throughout the night.

Embracing Caribbean Culture

Brunch and Soca not only celebrates the vibrancy of soca music but also serves as a platform for showcasing the rich cultural heritage of the Caribbean. Selectors curated a diverse playlist that paid homage to Jamaica’s musical legacy, seamlessly blending soca tunes with iconic dancehall tracks.
