Recently, Bajan soca queen Alison Hinds had the opportunity to speak and perform as the 2014 Goodwill Ambassador for the Business and Professional Women's Club on Jeju Island in South Korea. Hinds was quoted as saying in the Barbados Nation News "I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know how our music, soca music was going to be received in a place like South Korea". She also goes on to say that "Nobody ever heard of soca, didn't know where Barbados was, don't know where the Caribbean is, I mean really not know. And I was able to take soca music to them and they loved it. They embraced it." (Barbados Nation News)
Soca music has long since been the heart, soul and seasoning of the Caribbean. Various artists, such as Bunji Garlin and Fayann Lyons, are pushing for soca to become an even bigger, mainstream phenomenon. So to that I say: Soca to the world!
