3 Canal

3canal are recording artists from Trinidad & Tobago. Their genre of music is called Rapso. Rapso is conscious music and is more of a philosophy and stance than an identifiable musical signature. It has been termed “The Power of the Word in the Rhythm of the Word”, “The Poetry of Calypso” and “The Consciousness of Soca”.

Their musical journey began in 1997, with the song “Blue”, a song which marked a turning point for the music industry of TnT. It became a benchmark for the new Sound of the music of Trinidad’s Carnival. Two years later [1999] they recorded “Talk yuh Talk” a hard hitting response to all “mocking pretenders of society”. This went on to become an anthem for the dispossessed and voiceless. 3canal’s work as artists goes beyond making music into Performance Workshops & Mentorship, Design & Consultancy, Event Production & Management, through their production company cut + clear productions ltd. In 2004 they created “The 3canal Show” a multi-media performance event, which has since become an annual event in Trinidad’s carnival calendar.

For the Trinidad Carnival they also create a Jouvay Band. Jouvay is a ritual street “parade” where revellers claim the streets from 4am to sunrise, masquerading in various guises, mud, oil. pigments. It roots derive from the “Canboulay” a commemoration of the burning of the sugar cane [Cannes Brulee] by the former slaves. A significant part of their work involves working with young people in workshop labs using the carnival arts as a means of expression and empowerment.
