Every year at Carnival, hundreds of artists from across the Caribbean country of Trinidad and Tobago submit songs and compete to be crowned either the International Soca Monarch or the winner of the Carnival Road March. Their tracks glorify the sweet sound of soca, a regional fusion of funk, calypso, electronic dance, reggae, zouk, R&B, dance pop and whatever tunes are moving the crowd on the date of the festival. Lincoln Center celebrates the enduring spirit and joy of soca music with an unforgettable show from Trini Carnival legend and crossover star Patrice Roberts. One of the genre's most prominent female voices, Roberts has been entertaining island audiences for nearly two decades as a luminary in Carnival competitions, including a 2006 Road March victory with Machel Montano. Her hit "Mind My Business" is the most streamed soca song in the world; don't miss it and other unstoppable singles live!

Run time: approximately 2 hours 30 minutes
