Anton Joseph, Fanatic win 2018 NCCU Cadence-Lypso Competition

Anton “White Fayrie” Joseph is stamping his mark on the NCCU Cadence-Lypso Competition.

Joseph won the competition for the fourth consecutive time on Saturday night (November 2, 2018) at a well-patronized show which was held on the  fore court of Windsor Park Sports Stadium.

Before a large, responsive crowd, Joseph gave a stirring performance of his song, “We still Striving” which highlights the resilience of Dominicans in the face of the many challenges that arose during and after the passage of Hurricane Maria.

Joseph won the NCCU Cadence-Lypso Competition in 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2018. The competition was not held in 2017 due to the passage of Hurricane Maria.

Christopher “Chris B” Sylvester placed second with a song entitled “Chauffeur Bus” and the youthful Carsim Birmingham, took 3rd place, singing “La Vie Dou”

While veteran competitor Joseph continued to dominate the individual section, it was a first-time competitor, Fanatic, that won the bands section. Having been the back-up band for the individual aspect of the competition for a number of years, Fanatic delivered a solid, well-arranged repertoire which included the test piece, “Cadence Lypso” by Exile One and two original numbers.

Below are audios of the winners’songs.

Anton Joseph – We Striving

Chris B – Chauffer Bus

Carsim Birmingham

    Anton….. you’ve made your mark. You are the reigning king of Cadence. For me your decision to call it quits for the competition is timely. Your writing skills is top notch. I hope you will continue making your mark there. Go and Celebrate. One love!!!!
