Just a few weeks ago upcoming artist Synead releases debut single “Trapicao”, today she follows up with island visuals.
In this video, Synead takes us to her hometown of Sweet Sweet T&T (Trinidad & Tobago) as she shows us the culture and of one of the most popular and vibrant Carnival celebrations in the world.
“En trapicao, come and get your perfect getaway / En trapicao, it’s a prayer when you feel it in the air right out the gate / Live in the now, come and let your worries wash about / Goofing around, push a hunnit with the fam on the land we lie the way,” she sings.
Director and co-producer of the debut single Matt FX explained: “At the beginning of last year I was in the midst of going through some personal stuff when Synead hit me up about the fact that she was thinking of heading back to Trinidad for Carnival. To be honest, the idea of escaping to warmer climates to make art we’d dreamed of was at the time the perfect remedy for my situation at home. I will never forget those 3 days on the ground driving around w Bjorn Nichols, Cid’s Trini cousin and our de-facto location scout. From the frenetic and hectic energy of Carnival to the calming vibe of Maracas Bay… what a journey.”
We’re proud to introduce you to Synead and let her take you on her journey to “Tropicao”:
