MovieTowne stages The Power of The Guitar
Fiesta Plaza at MovieTowne, Port-of-Spain will again host four of T&T’s most talented guitar artistes in a series of free concerts to showcase the versatility and skills of some of our upcoming and well-seasoned performers as The Power of The Guitar is celebrated. These artistes are all unique and each brings a different style to these events. Nigel Rojas headlines the concerts which take place every Saturday in October at 8.30 pm. Rojas, who in 2013 was featured on Bunji Garlin’s monster Carnival hit Differentology, is also the lead guitarist in the very successful rock band Orange Sky. Patrons will be treated to an exciting set of blues, hard rock, heavy metal and neo-flamenco fusions from this talented artiste who holds an official endorsement with the international guitar company Dean USA since 2005.
Dax Cartar, the youngest of the performers, is a self-taught guitarist who loves playing the music of virtuoso guitarist like Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen and Joe Satriani. He is one of the founding members of the local rock and reggae band Krash and also plays with his siblings—Philip and Marie-Angelique Cartar—in their family band, The Cartars. This young and gifted musician performs October 12, at 8.30 pm. Dean Williams will be featured at Fiesta Plaza for the second time after being part of this exciting concert in 2010. He holds a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts degree from the University of Trinidad and Tobago, U&T and has performed and trained under Theron Shaw (Trinidad), Bruce Saunders of Berklee Online College and jazz guitar with Mike Moreno (New York). Williams promises to deliver a mesmerising performance to the Fiesta Plaza audience on October 19.
Michael Chang Wai will close The Power of The Guitar on October 26. Chang Wai has performed with almost every rock band in T&T in his younger days and then went on to become a foundation member of the now defunct Divine Echoes. As a member of Divine Echoes, he was able to study and perform in Cuba, under a government-to-government arrangement. He is also pursuing an associate degree in the performing arts, with a major in guitar at the College of Science, Technology & Applies Arts of Trinidad and Tobago (Costaatt).
