YOUNI-T has always marched to the beat of her own drum, (steel drum in this case!). She was introduced to the full beauty of PAN music at the "PANORAMA" competition in Brooklyn in 2010, and instantly fell in love! In 2014, she decided to write her own Pan Song. She collaborated with her producer "BIG DAWG" and together they created "PAN INFEKSHUN". She was blessed to meet SOCA MUSIC LEGEND "PREACHER" at Miami Carnival 2014, and played the song for him. He liked it so much, he immediately sent it to Mr. Alvin Daniell's for consideration. She was thrilled to learn that it had been selected to be on his 2014 COMPILATION PAN CD! The blessings continued as PAN INFEKSHUN also graced the airwaves of WACK RADIO in Trinidad and Tobago for the first time on 1/15/2014!!
If that isn't enough, YOUNI-T and "BIG DAWG" create not only PAN music, but Soca music as well! Together, they have even invented a NEW genre of music called "USOKA". It is the fusion of Soca, Hip-Hop, Reggae, R&B, Pop, Soul and even Steel Pan. The end result is a UNIVERSAL SOCA (U-SOKA) ball of energy that will sweep the masses!
YOUNI-T will be performing at T&T Carnival 2014, and inviting EVERYONE to join her on this musical quest to create "ONE World....ONE Vibe".....
(Youni-T) I like it. I also love how you incorporate soca, into the various genres you help create. We can't help but love you, because you are helping to keep the TnT flag, flying high. I'll be looking out. Much love and kisses.
Hi Niki. I'm Curtis Betaudier from Trinidad.It was a pleasant surprise to hear your selections. I don't know if you've ever been to my country,but we'll love to have you here,sometime.Keep doing what you're doing,which is promoting the artform and I can't wait to hear you next year.I would play Pan Infekshun for people and when they have gotten infected with the music,I would scroll down to your picture and be amused by their look of utter astonishment.I love you.Niki.
