Iwer George Mash up Six Flags"Come to Meh"

Soca music was definitely on tap at Tempo Turns 4, with Trinidad native Iwer George. For over twenty years, his distinctive vocal style and unfailing ability to stir a crowd have shaken the foundations of Soca and Calypso, making him king of the dancehalls of Trinidad and Tobago. Born in Point Fortin, South Trinidad Iwer's career began at the age of 21. He exploded onto the scene in 1987 with the runaway favourite “Boom Boom Time,” which went on to place 2nd in Trinidad and Tobago’s Road March Competition, and later the same year he took home the coveted Nation Building Calypso award with “Times Hard, Hold Tight.” Since his controversial debut on the Soca music scene, he has been perhaps the most successful artiste of the Jump and Wave theme, with such hits as “Yes Iwer,” “Jump and Dunk,” “Ah Reading,” “Carnival Come Back Again,” “Gimme Ah Bligh” and “We Reach.” and continues to damage the stage at Tempo turns 6  with "Come To Meh"
