Heated debate at Let’s Talk


Share post:

THERE WAS heated discussion as calypsonians and calypso lovers descended on the Queens Park Steel Shed for the Let’s Talk series last night.

It is one of the many outreach sessions being staged by the National Cultural Foundation to get feedback from stake holders on Barbados’ premier festival Crop Over.

Subjects that generated much debate include the judging system; the definition of calypsos and how they should be categorised for the various competitions like Pic-O-De-Crop, Party Monarch and Sweet Soca; the involvement of minors on the stage; the role deliberations should play in selecting the monarchs for the respective competitions and participating as duets and solo acts for all the competitions.

Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation Cranston Browne said the discussion was held to debate recommendations that were put forward by stakeholders. (JS)
