The semi-finals of the 2015 Chutney Soca Monarch will be held on Friday 16th January at Rienzi Complex in Couva. WinHD is the official media partner so I'm sure it will be streamed live online on one of their stations. We will post the live stream information when it becomes available so keep on checking. Also, we are thrilled that our resident chutney soca-ologist and scholar, Dj Maco will be joining us to give his take on the 2015 Chutney Soca monarch competition.
