Hosted at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the cost of $200, the concert will be the place for Trinbagonians to come together in a spirit of love and positivity. Doors will open at 5 pm to a series of interactive mini-features, with the concert starting at 6 pm. The proceeds from this event will go towards a Sustainable Development Goals Catalyst Fund overseen by United Way T&T.
About the song
No Greater Time is a collaborative music project created by a group of Trinidad and Tobago’s musicians. The song features over 35 artistes ranging from calypso legends David Rudder and Tambu, to the inimitable Ella Andall, to contemporary soca stars Kees and Destra, and the youngest soca and calypso monarchs, Voice and Aaron Duncan. Inspired by the 1986 calypso classic, “Now Is The Time”, the Trinbagonian response to “We Are the World”, #NoGreaterTime will use music to both deliver a necessary message and to unite people across the country. The aim of this project, according to the organisers, is “to rally citizens to collectively create a more peaceful, prosperous and unified Trinbagonian society”.
