Destra Garcia – a familiar act at the BVI’s emancipation festivities each year – pulled off yet another enthralling performance when she graced the stage at the festival village in Road Town Tuesday night.
Within seconds of starting her set, patrons inside the village became hooked as she reeled off soca hits such as Lucy, Just A Little Bit, I Dare You, and a host of other songs.
The acclaimed ‘Queen of Bacchanal’ had patrons singing along to her tunes, jumping, and of course, coupling up to gyrate against each other. Destra also did not disappoint in treating patrons with a few dance moves of her own.
Half-way through her set, she invited fellow Trinidadian soca singer Farmer Nappy to join her in singing their 2017 hit, Technically.
The crowd erupted with cheers when the dreadlocked singer joined the bacchanal queen. Destra then yielded the stage for patrons to enjoy more of Farmer Nappy, who gave a captivating solo performance.
Destra then returned to deliver the second half of her set, which lasted till minutes before 3 o’clock in the morning.
The Trinidadian singers had performed just after local band ABM as well as co-winner of this year’s Road March – VIBE.
Meanwhile, officials such as Premier Dr D Orlando Smith and the BVI’s First Lady Lorna Smith were spotted inside the village, absorbing some of the night’s events.
