COTT alerted over another soca song
While the Copyright Music Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago (COTT) has begun a process of investigating a Spanish version of Palance, the organisation has been alerted of the group’s remake of another soca song. Sheyna Watson, former manager of Blazer Dan, who was murdered last year, said Comando Tiburon also remade his song Stages, which was released in 2004. Palance, sung by JW and Blaze, which won Road March last year, also was posted on Youtube with over 50,000 views, goes by the name Vete Pa’ La Verde. Watson said she found out about the song and the accompanying video on Wednesday evening when a friend posted it on her Web site.
She contacted Junior Lett, media licensing officer at COTT, and alerted him about it. Lett said COTT reached out to the group yesterday and was awaiting a response. COTT wants to find out if the group is registered with a collection agency before proceeding with any other action. Comando Tiburon is a group from Panama, comprising four DJs. It is described as a Spanish reggae group that sings reggae, soca and folk rhythms.
