Machel Montano took Soca to the White House on Wednesday where — even without his full band — he had the gathering singing along to “Dance with You.”
T&T’s first soca superstar joined other Caribbean artistes in Washington D.C at a conference to discuss the Impact of Caribbean Culture on America. It was all part of the Caribbean Heritage Month White House Briefing.
In this video, which Montano posted to Instagram, T&T’s jazz trumpeter Etienne Charles joined in the performance.
Charles, the Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies at Michigan State University, was also part of the conference.
