Soca is a type of dance music which originated in Trinidad-and is a mixture of calypso and Indian music and rhythms. However, someone stated that Soca mainly comes from Trinidad & Barbados-WRONG. Barbados didn't start producing soca until the 80's....it's just that they have some popular artists so they get credit but they got into the game late. I also want to state that Soca is most definitly NOT limited to Trinidad (though they produce the most soca and sometimes the best).

There are great soca artists coming out of ALL the Caribbean Islands like St. Vincent, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, Antigua, Dominica, etc. All these Islands produce GREAT soca music but they are not given a lot of exposure so many of you probably think Soca is limited to only T&T and Barbados-which is not true at all.

St. Vincent especially has done very well for itself-with artists like Kevin Lyttle, Jamesy P, Beckett.
Grenada has the incomproble Ajamu, Sparrow (considered a T&T artist as well), Inspector, and some great new talent like Mr. Killa.
Barbados has Rupee & Alison Hinds among other artists.
T&T has too many to name-but Machel Montano,Destra and Shurwayne Winchester are some of my favorites from Trinidad.
Antigua has some very talented artist like Burning Flames, whom I am a big fan of as well.
"Teaser" by Beckett is a great soca tune
"Turn me on" By Kevin Lyttle is a great soca tune
"It's Carnival" By Destra & Machel Montano is a great soca tune
"Iron Bazodee" By Alison Hinds is a great soca tune
"Balance" by Mr. Killa is a great soca tune
