LONDON, England — In keeping with High Commissioner Garvin Nicholas’s vision that the Trinidad and Tobago Culture Fest be an authentic representation of the country and culture, soca star Machel Montano and his band ended their 5-day performance with a bang on Saturday. Buoyed by the news that Keshorn Walcott had won gold in the Men’s Javelin, Montano performed non-stop for two hours that evening and the crowd lapped it up.
It was the perfect end to an unprecedented week long performance by the soca star. Nicholas said that the Culture Fest was meant to be a showcase of the best of Trinidad and Tobago and that it was very important that as many people as possible had an opportunity to see Machel Montano.
At the end of the show Montano thanked the high commissioner for including him in the Culture Fest. He delivered an inspired performance that evening, one in which he paid tribute to Trinidad and Tobago’s 2012 Olympic team. Judging by the crowd’s reaction they thoroughly enjoyed the show.
