Sizzla Kalonji, known for songs such as Thank You Mamma and Just One of These Days, is part of the cast of the Kings of the Earth concert, Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain on November 26. –

One of the main goals of the Kings of the Earth concert is to bring a conscious mindset back to Trinidad and Tobago, especially among youth and young adults.

Event producer Matthew Dasent said his “royal” cast of reggae legends – Sizzla Kalonji, Capleton, Anthony B and Cocoa Tea – have always instilled positivity and righteousness through their music.

Dasent believes the time has come for this inspiring quartet of singers to share the same stage for the first time in Trinidad and deliver a welcome message of peace and love to the people of TT.

The concert will take place at Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain, on November 26, starting at 8 p.m.

Capleton is one of the quarter of the singers sharing the stage of the reggae concert Kings of The Earth. –

Violence and lawlessness have seen a meteoric rise in the country and Dasent hopes to use positive vibes through music to spark a return to consciousness.

“There has to be a balance. I think that’s what’s missing here in TT. There is a lack of awareness and conscious content. Some of the craziness going on in our country has absolutely no reason.

“Each of these artists has over two decades of positive content and the campaign, Return to Consciousness, is not just a theme for the event, but through partnerships with media houses that actually care, we can make the difference.

“We need to be more aware here.”

The Earth Kings concert, which will feature Anthony B, aims to “restore a mindful mindset to the TT”. –

Dasent added that a portion of the proceeds from the concert will be invested in a 24-hour helpline for people who just need someone to listen to them and provide positive feedback.

“The end result is to set up a dispute resolution hotline where anyone can call, 24 hours a day, for advice and someone to talk to. We plan to employ a minimum of three qualified and experienced psychologists to help this cause.

“Our goal is to keep calls completely anonymous and private. A lot of people in TT right now just need someone to talk to. In the end, people just need someone to listen to them.

“It’s not just a concert.”

Ccoa Tea will perform at the Kings of the Earth Reggae Concert at Queen’s Park Savannah on November 26. –

Dasent said the company has the support of broadcast companies, but also called on other public and private entities to join the initiative.

On November 25, the organizers won’t be having a welcome party for artists and patrons, but instead plan to go to a community and do a free performance there from 2-6 p.m. For this pre-concert event, Dasent plans to include some of the international artists and several local artists. He also wants to use this platform to showcase some of TT’s undiscovered talents.

“We consider this pre-event as a symposium. We want to have speakers, spoken word, musicians, theater and other elements of art forms that can bring more positive and righteous thinking to our young people in particular.

“We need to take culture a little more seriously.”
