UK Soca Monarch 2012 Finalists

We at Soca News would like to thank all the artists who have submitted their entries to this year's soca monarch competition, and congratulations to those who have made it through to the final. We'll see you on Soca Monarch Sunday, 19th August, at the Scala in King's Cross. To the entrants who didn't get through, we say better luck next year. The UK soca industry needs events like the UK Soca Monarch competition in order to build visibility and status for the genre in this country. If one took a straw poll and ask a person on the high street to name more than five UK soca artists, they would struggle to even understand the question; we would like to change that!

Using facebook and twitter to promote themselves and communicate directly with fans, although helpful, still isn't enough for artists to reach new audiences, especially outside the Caribbean. Much more needs to be done. We're trying to do just a little of this.

The final of this year’s event will take place at the Scala in Kings Cross, where Muzik Lil Muzik will battle it out to try and retain their title. So mark the date in your diary now. Soca Monarch: Sunday 19 August.

Groovy Soca Monarch
