Barbadian born Terrah Dan is participating to the UK Soca Road March for the first time this year.
He is involved in both the Bajan and UK soca scenes.
How long have you been involved in music, what is your story?
I have been doing music from as long as I can remember, I studied music at college
I started off doing Bajan Dancehall and gradually moved into the soca arena. My break came when I performed as a wildcard at the St Andrew, Crop Over Calvacade in Barbados. From there, I came back to London and met Soca Child 360 (Riddim Up Productions) and I have been doing soca since that day.
What inspired you for this year’s track Soca 4 Life?
This track was inspired by every soca artist, DJ & soca lovers around the world….I wanted to do a track that is not limited to any particular country, just something we all have in common which is our love of soca. Thats also why I named the track Soca 4 Life
How do you make your audience happy when you perform?
I love to work off the energy I receive from an audience I like to give trouble as they say, so I like to single people out and interact with them wether that means making them wave or me dancing with them, I’m very active.
What makes Notting Hill carnival special to you?
Notting Hill carnival is special to me because of its diversity. It doesn’t just attract people from the Caribbean but people from all over the globe young and old alike….it’s a great way to spread our culture and to give people who don’t know about soca the chance to experience a piece of every island.
