We are so happy to have Dj Maco joining us again this year to share his thoughts about the Chutney Soca offerings for 2015 on this the 20th Anniversary of the Chutney Soca Monarch competition. In the meantime, I encourage you to have listen to his mix and read his article: Chutney Soca, the Indian Sound of the Caribbean.  Our culture and creative art forms are worthy of scholarly study.  We applaud DJ Maco and appreciate his contribution to spreading the love of chutney soca worldwide. http://iaspm-us.net/from-oral-tradition-to-carnivalization-chutney-soca-the-indian-sound-of-the-caribbean-by-darrell-g-baksh/
