Coachella, for the uninitiated, is California’s premier music festival. The event runs Friday to Monday and is held over two weekends.
Facilities at the festival include, on-site and off-site camping, and shuttles to and from the festival site, for those staying at hotels. Typical acts include Bluur, the Wombats, DJ Dan, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and many more.
What does this have to do with Soca? Jamaican DJ and producer, Major Lazer, was there to showcase some of the Caribbean’s music. Almost ten days ago, Major Lazer remixed and released Bunji Garlin’s 2013 massive Soca hit, Differentology and it featured almost 7 minutes into his set. Nearly twenty five minute later, the audience was treated to JW and Blaze’s, power Soca and road-march winning track, Palance. Both songs were well received by the crowd, who could be seen jumping, waving and palancing.
