This evening 's Campari Debut will kickstart the first of five events under the Xodus Carnival series. The drink-inclusive soca fete will be held at ATL Autobahn on Lady Musgrave Road in St Andrew at 8:00 pm.

Trinidad and Tobago's Aaron “Voice” St Louis, winner of the International Soca Monarch Song contest for a third-consecutive year, is scheduled to perform.

Xodus Carnival is now in its second year, and was conceptualised by favoured costume makers YUMA and party experts Dream Entertainment. Scott Dunn, managing director for the latter, is pleased to be a part of the Jamaica carnival experience.

“It's been amazing! Both locals and foreigners have responded well to our product and the Xodus family is growing,” Dunn told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

Though relatively new to the soca scene, Dunn believes they offer the best experience and invites patrons to come out.

“Xodus is the biggest and best band in Jamaica and Voice is Trinidad's Soca Monarch for 2016, 2017 and 2018. We have the best costumes, the best artistes, the best DJs, premium liquor and the Xodus experience,” said Dunn.

Voice is known for his pulsating hits Cheers to Life, Year of Love and Far From Finished. Patrons will also be ' wukking' up a sweat to the musical selections of Trinidad's DJ Charolette and Major Penny, and our very own DJ Lantern MD and Copper Cyclone.

Xodus Carnival events also include Tailgate on March 29, Soaka Street Festival on April 6, and Road March and Wine Down on April 8.

The band unveiled its 2018 costume collection last November under the theme 'League of Angels' at the Pearly Gates on 36 Hope Road. Designers who were involved in creating the enchanting pieces include Jamaica's Simone Michelle, Janelle Forde from Barbados, and David Dewer from Trinidad and Tobago.
