HAPPY EMANCIPATION DAY TO EVERYONE!
Researched & Written By Ian Socapro Henry

The Emancipation Day holiday was first declared by the T&T government on 1st August 1985 which makes Trinidad & Tobago the first country in the English speaking western world to officially declare the 1st August as an Emancipation Day public holiday 33 years ago.

Most people are unaware that during the 1800's between 1834 and 1845 (for over a decade) T&T had two annual Carnival celebrations; the Pre-Lent Carnival which was referred to back then as "Jamette Carnival" by the upper-classes who generally stopped having their upper-class Mardi Gras Balls after slavery was abolished in 1834 and there was also the Canboulay Celebrations which was a more African style Carnival that became an annual celebration for a period of a decade plus between 1834 and 1845 on 1st August in celebration of the abolition of slavery.

By the way, the word “Jamette” is derived from the French word “diametre” and this referred to the class of people below the diameter of respectability or the underworld. Essentially Jamettes referred to individuals who were part of the urban working class who lived in the barrack ranges of Port of Spain and San Fernando. In a broader context it also included all those who participated in urban Carnival celebrations after slavery was abolished. A description of Jamettes can be found in the San Fernando Gazette of 1871.

Canboulay is a French-Creole word derived from the French term "cannes brulées" meaning burnt cane. Canboulay is a precursor to T&T Carnival and is also the festival where calypso music has its roots. Canboulay was originally a harvest festival at which drums, singing, dancing and chanting were an integral part. After Emancipation (1834), it developed into an outlet and a festival for freed slaves who were banned from participating in the masquerade balls – derived from the European Christian traditions of the colonial elite.

Sometime after 1845 the Canboulay celebrations were moved from the 1st August and fused with the more European influenced Jamette Carnival celebrations which was based on many of the characters that were depicted by the upper-classes at the plantation class Mardi Gras Balls during slavery.

So to a certain extent the Emancipation Day Holiday in T&T is a revival of the original Canboulay celebrations that was started by ex-slaves on the 1st August 1834 to celebrate their perceived liberation from slavery when the Abolition of Slavery was announced in Trinidad by the British Governor at the Governor House in Port-of-Spain on 1st August 1834.

What added more energy to the early Canboulay celebrations in Trinidad from 1834 onwards was the fact that the British Governor to Trinidad tried to announce the implementation of a temporary Apprenticeship system in Trinidad (which was really the continuation of slavery by another name) to last until 1840 but the masses gathered outside of the Governor House protested and sang a kaiso composed on the spot by Congo Bara in French-Creole called "Point De Six Ans" ("Not Six More Years"). The growing crowd outside of the Governor House kept drowning out the Governor's announcement about the proposed Apprenticeship system and would not disperse and they eventually forced the Governor to concede that the proposed Apprenticeship system will not be implemented in Trinidad. However the Apprenticeship system was successfully announced and implemented in all the other British colonies in the West Indies and that system was not officially abolished until 1838. This fact also makes T&T the first British colony to unofficially get rid of slavery in 1834 which was 4 years ahead of the other British colonies.

1834 is thus the more accurate year that truly inclusive Trinidad Carnival started and not 1783 as many of us have been misled into believing. 1783 was the year when the French Plantation class introduced their European style Mardi Gras Masquerade Balls to Trinidad to celebrate the wealth and class elevation they had acquired on the backs of the free labour provided by the majority enslaved African population. It should also be noted that the general enslaved African population were not allowed to take part in the plantation class Mardi Gras Balls during slavery. Most of the plantation class Mardi Gras Balls died a natural death in T&T after slavery was abolished as many European planters decided to migrate back to Europe. Post abolition of slavery the early colonial Police force was actually set up in T&T with its main agenda being the protection of the Plantation classes from any possible or imagined retribution from the former physically enslaved African majority.

What about Track & Field / Re: 2018 Track & Field Season
« on: August 02, 2018, 02:03:59 AM »
Anyone know what happened with our hepthlon girls? they both did not run the last event(800m) . One was in medal contentin as well  ???

That will be interesting to find out as Tyra Gittens was in bronze medal position after 6 disciplines and could have easily won a bronze medal had she competed in the last event (the Women's 800m Heptatahlon);

It also does not make any sense that T&T did not field any male 400m runners and a Men's 4x400m relay team especially knowing the high calibre of Male 400m runners that we have when compared with the best in the region. It is also at these regional games that we should be blooding our individual Women 400m and Women's 4x400m relay teams if the NAAA TT are serious about ever making sure that T&T fields competitive Women's 4x400m relay teams at future global championships.
Or maybe they are content to continue seeing our TTO Teams underachieving for the talent we have at our disposal as we currently have been doing for the last decade at various track & field games and championships.

We need to continue lashing the NAAA TT hard for their shortsightedness in selecting TTO teams for these various regional games which ultimately leads to our teams underachieving in the amount of medals they bring home. The NAAA TT still seems to be more concerned about taking the maximum number of officials on these trips than they are about giving the maximum number of TTO athletes the opportunity to compete against the best in the region for medals and to also gain vital experience that can serve them well for being competitive at the world class level at future global championships.

On a related side note, maybe the time has come for Jehue Gordon to also try his hand at some other track events and not to limit himself to just the 400m Hurdles as that strategy might benefit him in the long term in getting back to the top flight in his pet event. If I was Jehue I would try my hand at competing in more 400m flat events and more 110m Hurdles events to help work on my top end speed and speed endurance.

Oh, lord!

Was well in the lead in the 2nd and 3rd leg. Very slow handover and Cedino get boxed in.
Thought he might pull it out in the stretch but not to be.

They lost close to half a second on that handover.

VB

If you look at the video of the last exchange you will see that Cedenio was pushed in the exchange zone by the Kenyan who was meant to remain outside of him but decided to move from his designated exchange position towards the inside lane to get to his incoming teammate running in the inside lane.
Kenya was rightly DQed for exchanging in the wrong position but the push that Cedenio got from the Kenyan outgoing runner caused the incoming Quow to take an extra second to get the baton safely into Cedenio's hand and after that delay Cedenio was then boxed-in by the other front runners for most of the last lap.
Its unfortunate but I think Cedenio did his best to deal with the situation but his trademark last 100m kick was missing and he was unable to overhaul the 3 last leg runners who were able to get ahead of him before the last 100m of the last leg. I believe that push that Cedenio got from the Kenyan in the exchange zone that caused the delay in us making a safe baton change could have cost us a medal.
Disappointing but so it goes sometimes in these relays when luck wasn't on your side.

FINAL: Trinidad and Tobago 0-1 Panama. Goal scored by Jesús 'Chuito' González in the 90th minute.

Looks like the T&T defenders fell asleep a bit near the end to have conceded in the 90th minute.

This CWG gold for MLA is 4 years overdue as she was having a great breakout season back in 2014 with a long unbeaten streak on the circuit in Europe when she got injured just before CWG2014.

MLA was plagued with injuries for about 2 to 3 years between 2014 and 2016 which has retarded her progress and goal to become the fastest in the world.

Hopefully MLA can now gain the confidence from this CWG2018 victory to step up her performances at major championships and so be able to regularly mount the podium thus proving that she is one of the world's top 3 along side ET and whoever else joins the podium party.

Congrats to MLA on her coping her first major championship title which is the prefect birthday to herself.

Wow, not a single post. Actually, it is very disappointing on our part.  JA  28 Gold, Bahamas 6 Gold, TT 3 Golds. And I think this JA high school TF weekend. So their best is no at the Carifta. So how effective is TF grass-root programs.

Fyi Champs in Jamaica was last weekend, not this weekend.
And actually we won 4 gold medals, 6 silver & 7 bronze medals for a total of 17 medals.
On Day 1 we won 4 medals (2 gold, 0 silver, 2 bronze)
On Day 2 we won 6 medals (1 gold, 2 silver, 3 bronze)
On Day 3 we won 7 medals (1 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze)

Our Boys U17 4x4 team got DQed for exchanging the baton outside of the exchange zone otherwise we would have won 1 more bronze medal for a total of 18 medals.
In addition Avindale Smith picked up a hip injury and did not start in the Boys U17 200m final where he was a strong contender to medal. Avindale was also withdrawn from our Boys U17 4x4 Relay team which would have been a strong contender for gold if he was healthy to run in the final as he was winner of the individual Boys U17 400m gold.
Adéll Colthrust the 2017 Carifta Boys U17 100m champion was also missing from our team due to injury.

Still we under-performed and won less medals than last year so it seems that we are going backwards rather than forwards.

Our main flaw was not fielding any athletes in about half the events rather than taking a leaf from Jamaica and trying to field athletes in as many events as possible. It seems that NAAA has a policy that if they believe an athlete is not a strong contender for gold then they don't want to send you to the Carifta Games and in this regard they don't seem to realize that the Carifta Games is the major development meet for young athletes in our region and the more athletes we can give the experience of competing against the best in the region is the more they can improve and then be able to come back stronger the following year to become stronger medal contenders.

Bahamas with 1/4 of T&T's population seem to understand that Carifta Games is a development meet which is why they are now reaping the fruits of their investment in their young athletes over the past number of years. Our NAAA seems to be very shortsighted in this regard and don't want to use Carifta as a development meet for our young athletes which it is.

I have heard the NAAA President Ephraim Serrette refer to the Carifta Games as the Olympics for our young athletes which clearly tells me that he has the totally wrong concept of what we should be using the Carifta Games for which is as a development meet for as many of our young talented athletes as we possible can.
If Mr Serrette does not understand how to use the Carifta Games to develop our young athletes to compete against the best young athletes in our region then all that he needs to do is to watch what Jamaica and The Bahamas are doing and to copy their development strategy. This should not be so difficult for him to figure out.

TT don't ever have an indoor season. Only the US based athletes tend to particpate. Cedenio is home based.

Cedenio is now based in the USA and trains with a professional adidas camp in Orlando and has been there for the last few seasons.

Indoors is completely different to outdoor running.  you hardly ever find the same people winning both. for example, has Bolt ever run indoors or won an indoor medal? Its a banked track with sharp turns. I wouldn't worry too much about the results here.  Having said that, I am impressed with the return of Deon Lendore, which strengthens the 400 pool, but i am worried that Cedenio doesn't appear as strong and fast as he was two years ago. From my eyes, he appears over weight but that could be deceiving.

Cedenio is our tallest quarter-miler and has never done a full indoor season with his club so in addition to not being physically suited to running indoors he doesn't have as much experience running indoors as our other athletes who were selected for the 4x4 team in Birmingham. Also Cedenio being more conditioned and suited to running outdoors will tend to peak later in the outdoor season anyway.
Cedenio should be just fine provided he has put in the required winter/pre-season training.

That Soca Kingdom song is a shit song that the mafia trying to ram down we throat for road march.......steups!!

Don't think its a shit song, its a hype song! There are many sweeter songs for the road out this year!
The so-called mafia only control one or two radio stations directly. Problem is that other radio stations which they have no management control over tend to follow what the one or two mafia controlled radio stations are doing in an effort to be just as popular as the mafia controlled radio stations.

So with Patrice pulling out of Soca Monarch, this just make this so call competitive event even weaker this year. This is why I continue to not rate this Soca Monarch ting

Over the years, we see Big stars like Machel, Bunji, Kerwin, Destra, Ultimate Rejects pulling out this event and now add Patrice Roberts to the list.


Patrice is probably pulling out of ISM because she is not the best live performer and needs to improve that aspect of career as an artist. I always find that she sounds like she is running out of breath most times when she performs live.

Bunji pulled out of ISM because he couldn't handled being beaten by Machel after MM reentered ISM in 2011.

Machel eventually pulled out of ISM after he proved the point between 2011 and 2015 that he is the undisputed Soca King and so has now decided again to concentrate on taking Soca to the global market.

Destra always beats herself in ISM even when she clearly has the most popular song like when she had "Lucy" and don't seem to be able to handle the competition environment so she finally accepted that fact and stopped competing.

UR are not into competitions and said so when they were formed after MX Prime joined them, its their policy. They almost didn't enter their song into the road march competition last year but finally gave in to public pressure.

Kerwin seems to be afraid of competing and not winning which is why Voice who used to jointly write songs with Kerwin has now surpassed Kerwin in ISM titles. Kerwin seems to have the same mindset as Kes that winning one Soca Monarch title is good enough for him as he does not like the negative environment generated between artists during ISM competitions.

Can you post a link officially confirming that the ISM is on this year as I am yet to hear this news?

Update: Ok, I just heard the official announcement from Peter Scoon the CEO of ISM on i95.5 FM that 2018 Soca Monarch is on.

« on: January 11, 2018, 04:43:16 AM »
You answer a question with a question. Usually the last futile attempt at legitmizing an argument you have lost.

Let me answer you though:

I started with the drum pattern and provided examples of a kick and snare sequence which is present in soca songs of the past and even some present. I didn't even mention the floor tom present in certain bars when the brass is playing. The floor tom underscoring the beat is something that existed in the says of Shorty, which in those days replaced the snare in many recordings.

I will further explain myself in saying that there is a compelling argument that the song has commanding lyrics in tis hook which is ever present in modern dancehall and soca. The song is called "front of the line" with the hook insisting that the subject of the song 'step to the front of the line' which in many a party soca song can paralleled to Superblue telling the crowd to 'get something and wave' Nigel Lewis telling the crowd to  'move it to the left' or Machel telling the revellers to 'hold on to the big truck'.

Since then we have had American artists like Fatman Scoop doing the same thing and dancehall artists like Elephant Man and Voicemail belting out instructions in their songs, 8 years after hearing Jamaicans  say 'soca a eediat music, only a sing bout instructions to rass'.

Now I reiterate that this is not necessarily a soca song, but my original question to you was how did it no contain much of a soca element.

Further, opinions on this subject can go either way depending on the ear that is listening. I posited though, that Trinis are quick to give up something that they played a role in, because it doesn't meet certain criteria, which I think is an injustice to our indigenous music and the roll it can play in the wider world.

If this was the case with other art forms, then maybe one could argue that Bob Marley's  Could You Be Loved was not actually reggae, but Marley's attempt at securing a disco/soul American market, which from interviews of those around him then, we know to be fact. But then Shaggy's It Wasn't Me, is still the highest selling reggae song of all time, and one of the most successful singles in history. What made that reggae/dancehall?

5 years earlier he and Ini Kamoze had pop hits with soul beats behind them, yet Jamaicans and others identified with them as reggae songs. We are nowhere near that level of adjustment in the case of Front of the Line, yet you are willing to say Trinidad and Tobago's music had little no no influence on that? One of the producers is a friggin Trini!!

Start listening.... really listening, and then make your statement. Listen to Calypso in the 50's and listen to Calypso just 10 years later in the late 60's and they sound completely different. Same genre though. Music moves on, maybe it's time you do too.

I have presented my argument. I eagerly await yours. If you could have the dignity of providing examples with your arguments instead of simply regurgitating previous posts, it would be appreciated.


I fully agree with what Swima has pointed out above. Swima obviously knows elements of soca when he hears it which for a matter of fact has been present in soca music since the 1970's and has since been used in numerous recently developed younger music genres like reggaeton, tropical house, EDM, etc over the years.

In addition if we listen to the song itself you will clearly hear Machel referring to the song as a fusion of soca and dancehall at 1:51 in the song. The EDM element in this song is obviously provided by Major Lazer which is basically a computerized Electronic Dance Music twist on the two main music genres soca and dancehall which has been fused together in this song. To compliment the fusion you have the top soca artist collaborating with a top dancehall artist on this song so the music fusion could not be made any clearer for those who know music.

Here is the song followed by the official song lyrics for confirmation, see verse 2 by Machel:

New Calypso Release by Morisha Ransome for 2018 dealing with the inability of the T&T govt to hang anyone despite the law on the law books because of the Privy Council ruling in the case PRATT & MORGAN which set an impossible 5 years timetable to hanging anyone on Death Row.

This one is definitely Calypso Monarch Finals material seeing that crime and murders is the number one issue plaguing T&T right now!

To bad D Lendore did not make the same decision he did when he had a chance to skip his last year of collage.

Was quietly thinking the same thing. However I don't think Lendore was offered a sponsorship deal after he won bronze anchoring our Men's 4x400m Relay team at the London Olympics in 2012. Maybe if Deon had won an individual 400m medal in addition to his relay medal in 2012 he may have been offered a sponsorship deal after London 2012.

However if I am not mistaken Lalonde Gordon who won both an individual 400m bronze medal and a 4x400m relay bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympics was offered an Adidas sponsorship deal after the London 2012 Olympics.

Unfortunately for Deon despite his great 400m potential he did not do enough in the individual 400m event at Major international meets while he was at Texas A&M to attract a good enough deal from a big sponsor to allow him to forego the rigorous Texas A&M schedule that they demand of their top college athletes that in most cases see them burnt out by the time they finish their college careers.
D Lendore best year was 2014 when he was unbeaten he could have gone pro that year but he chose to stay in school.

I don't think Deon won any individual 400m medal at any major championships in 2014 which I believe was the year of the last Commonwealth Games held in Scotland.

Can you recall if Deon was offered any major sponsorship deals in 2014 which he turned down?

Can Sando and others who are unaware please note that his name is Jereem Richards and not Jareem Richards.

I think Jereem has been touted as the best performing Caribbean althele at the London World  Championships.

I am sure Jareem not toting feelings about his name being misspelt like you. Doh worry everything will be ok  :D
.

Who told you that I am toting feelings about anything? I simply decided to help you out.

It seems that like the immature person you are you are obviously toting feeling about being corrected.

If you were a grown-up you would have just said thank you and moved along so it is obvious that no one else is toting feeling about being corrected but yourself.

PS:
You can continue to misspell Jereem's name if you wish which only proves my point that you are toting feeling about being corrected. Maybe one day you will grow-up? But I suspect we would actually see Watson Duke swim from Tobago to Trinidad before then!  ;)

Socapro, I follow your logic and argument.  It makes sense but one area where ppl could challenge it is the fact 3 of the 4 SB were obtained at the HCS.  People still skeptical about that clock.
The true differentiator is practice.  You can have one team with an average 10.25 per leg blaze a team with an average of 10.1 per leg if the 10.25 team practiced a lot more compared to the other team.

That has been the basis of my logical argument about the T&T Men's 4x100m relay team all along.
With a proper Relay Camp in place we can not only make the 4x100m Finals at major global championships with our current crop of 100m sprinters but should be able to even press for a medal.

"Gawd on pitch" seems to be determined to try to twist my totally logical argument on the benefits of a Relay Camp with me predicting that our Men's 4x100m Relay team would have definitely made the 4x100m Relay Final in London and press for a medal regardless of us not having the required Relay Camp and practice to help get our team up to speed.

Socapro and g.o.p, you guys are probably the best analysts on this forum as pertain to T&F. Ah mean, just reading the above  breakdown of each sprinters' time and why one team stands a better chance than other is remarkable. As much as I am a fan of T&F, I don't going into all these details. You guys are fantastic. But oh gorm, allyuh agree to disagree nah! Allyuh very knowledge, but each see things a different way. Nothing wrong with that.

Gawd on pitch deserves no credit for the stats that I provided in Reply #22 above giving details on the relay sprinters from Turkey and T&T especially as he seems to have ignored all of those stats in preference for accusing me of name calling because I asked him a logical question prompted by his persistence that I made a prediction that he can provide zero evidence of.

I find it highly annoying that gawd on pitch keeps insisting that I made this and that prediction about the Men's 4x100m relay team but he can provide no evidence. All he has to do is to go to my original post where I supposedly made the prediction and use the quote feature and then copy and paste my quote in his next reply.

He won't and can't do it because he knows he is just saying stuff off his head based on his imagination and what seems to either be a shakey memory or lack of understanding of the English I type when I make my posts.

Outside of that annoying habit of gawd on pitch accusing me of saying stuff I never said I have few issues with him if any at all and appreciate a lot of his knowledge on track & field.

Socapro,

You always talk about logic. But you tend to use "ad hominem" attacks to try and make your argument stronger. For instance, saying that I'm an idiot and calling me slow.

You are again demonstrating that you are suffering from serious English comprehension problems or clear oversensitivity.

Where did I state that you are an idiot? I simply asked you a question because you keep falsely claming that I made a prediction that I know I did not which I find highly annoying.

I asked the question: "Are you trying to be some kind of idiot gawd on pitch?" and with good reason.
Note it is a question prompted by your behaviour and not a statement. :)

Its now up to you to provide the answer to my question by posting or not posting a quote of me saying I predict that the T&T Men's 4x100m relay team will make the final and push for a medal regardless of their lack of preparations.
 
Why don't you post the quote of me making that prediction rather than typing what you imagine that I said which I know is fictional and misleading?

Regards you saying that I am calling you slow, you must either quickly provide the evidence requested or stop continuing to behave like a slow person who don't understand English and hence misinterpreted what I said about the relay teams which I have already clarified above.

Now if ever you have taken a class on logic, you will know what I'm talking about. In logic you will learn that resorting to name calling is childish. And it is usually a sign that the person is getting emotional. In none of my responses I have resorted to calling you names.

So what exactly did you mean by the mens 4x100 team "could push for a medal" if everything is right and in place? I'm paraphrasing here. I don't need the consensus of the other posters. But one has come out already to challenge your prediction of the men 4x100 having a chance to "push for a medal".

Please respond without name calling .. as I know you would not do so if you met me in person.

All of first paragraph in above quote is just you crying and playing victim as a distraction because you know you cannot provided any evidence to back your argument about what I supposedly predicted in your imagination.

Until you can provide the evidence requested I rest my case and will draw my own conclusion to my logical questions which you seem unable to answer.

In none of your responses have you yet resorted to posting a quote of what you accused me of predicting.
If you want to be taklen seriously you will need to provided the quote requested or alternatively apologise for misinterpreting and misrepresenting what I said on the topic.
