Soca Superstar Machel Montano, known as “Mr. Double M”
From his first debut song “Too Young for Soca” and his first band, at age nine called Pranasonic Express, Machel has ever since strove to revolutionise Soca Music. Over the years he has placed much attention on introducing Trinidad’s Sweet Soca Music to the world. With collaborations with Pitbull, Doug E Fresh, Busta Rhymes, Buju Banton Wyclef Jean and Shaggy, Trinidadians no longer have this upbeat music to themselves.
In 2007 Machel renamed his band “Machel Montano HD”, the concept implying that he was the first human being to go HD. His claims are that the HD represents the evolution of soca music over the last 25 years to what it is today. A must have at any Trini fete!
His latest Music video was shoot in beautiful South Africa in collaboration with soca colleague Kervin Du Bois ft. The African chorale group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
