Sr Renée Hall OP had the audience at the Holy Rosary/Gonzales parish cluster retreat singing and dancing to the rhythm of Nailah Blackman’s ‘More Sokah’, the tune that earned Desperadoes Steel Orchestra the 2020 National Panorama champion title and their 12th win. It was not more Soca people were calling for though, but more “scripture”.
It was the first day of the annual three-part pan yard crusade last Monday at ‘Despers’ pan yard, Tragarete Road, Port of Spain and there was a good turnout. The theme was: Living the Liturgy of the Word in Our Hearts.
She acknowledged the 2020 champions in her opening and called on Grace Music Ministry led by Atherly Nicholas to assist her with the song. Sr Renée said she was taking “poetic licence” and had adjusted the words.
