Asten Isaac, 23, is the new Chaguanas Calypso Monarch. Isaac of Arima sang under the sobriquet Guidance, and beat a field of 12 fellow contestants last Thursday night at the finals of the Senior Monarch and the Vintage Calypso competitions at the Chaguanas Market car park. He sang his own composition Living in the And. Isaac said this song focused on unpatriotic nationals who lived somewhere between T&T, and were unsure of their nationality. He said he was elated to cop the prize after entering the calypso arena only last year.
He praised the Chaguanas Carnival Committee for its commitment towards developing regional Carnival and promoting culture. Placing second was Marlon Edwards with I Believe, and hitting the third spot was Joanne Foster with Sacred. The vintage calypso competition was won by Lynette Steele, who sings under the sobriquet Lady Gypsy.
