Why do you think Soca was able to survive 5 decades and continue to grow stronger?

70's, 80's,90's,2000's and 2010's

right now the genre has a bigger reach than ever with so much influences all over the region and beyond

what allowed the genre to hold steady and even expand while other genres died along the way or never had such a reach

maybe its because its tied to carnival?

Because its deep in a culture. Trends will come and go but something that is embedded in culture is very difficult to remove.

The same goes for Calypso. It's popularity will fade in and out but it won't easily disappear.

Repect Our Soca Pioneers
Soca is part of our culture and culture only dies if the people all abandon their culture.

Reggae Dancehall is similar to soca and has been going strong from the 70's til now while evolving and incorporating the latest music trends.

I agree its because its tied into a culture deeply. Its not like those other music genres that will just get abandoned.

Got Kompa?
As long as there is Carnival there will be Soca. That is unless they replace it with something else.
