Organisers of the 2015 Berlin Carnival have express great satisfaction with the performance of Tallpree and the other Caribbean artistes who performed at various events at an annual affair that this year brought the Caribbean party energy to Germany.
According to Hendrik Sievert of Caribbean Fever Entertainment, the entertainment company that was responsible for Tallpree’s performance in Germany, the top performer from the Spice Isle delivered a performance full of power and energy.
“He moved the crowd with his unique style and brought a taste of the Spice Island straight to Berlin. We were really happy to bring Tallpree to Berlin. It was planned for a long time to have him here and finally we had arrange it this year,” he said.
“In combination with Skinny Fabulous, he (Tallpree) set the venue on fire. When he performed his songs it felt like you are standing in a fete in the Caribbean. We hope that this won’t be his last visit to Germany,” he added.
The artiste himself was delighted over his experience in Germany.
Tallpree said: “My experience in Berlin carnival is one that will last a life time. I performed at many carnivals, I’ve done many shows but Berlin had me amazed”.
“Firstly, their reactions to soca music, as you know I speak English but were performing to a German speaking audience. However, despite the language barrier that crowd with thousands was able to sing along to the watch lines and enjoyed themselves to the fullest with the rotation of songs,” he added.
Tallpree is optimistic that the reaction from the German crowd shows that soca music is on the upward trend.
“The energy of the people in the soca fetes is very similar to any soca shows in any Caribbean island and it’s a wonderful feeling for me, I can say that soca music is going places,” he remarked.
Thanking the organising committee for choosing him and Skinny Fabulous from St Vincent to perform at the various events at the Berlin carnival, Tallpree feels that these types of exposure will only work in the best interest of Soca music and soca entertainers and to push it up to a higher level.
“Especially for those of us from the smaller islands like Grenada and St Vincent, we are taking soca music far and wide, spreading the music, spreading the magic and we know that great things will come,” he said.
From Berlin, Tallpree travelled to Atlanta and Orlando where again he thrilled thousands with his musical magic at the different shows.
Tallpree’s arrangement to perform at the Berlin Carnival and the USA cities was organised and negotiated by Entertainment Event Company – Spice Concoction and his managing partner, Angus Steele.
“I am very pleased that not only he enjoyed the experience in Berlin despite the language barriers but he also left a positive effect on the organisers, because once they are happy it means that word will spread and this can only work in his best interest as a professional entertainer,” Steele said.
