Burning Flames Back In Saint Lucia For Carnival 2023


On Sunday July 9, 2023 Lynx Entertainment in collaboration with Watch Radio NYC, will present for the first time in Saint Lucia since the pandemic, Burning Flames out of Antigua.

Known for whipping up audiences into a frenzy, the popular jam-band was once a staple for Saint Lucia’s carnival, where they have garnered a legion of loyal fans. Promoters expect to bring out the nostalgic Burning Flames feel this Sunday and to turn up the heat in the south this carnival.

According to the promoters, the idea behind the event is two- fold; to bring back that exhilarating uniquely Saint Lucian carnival vibe and to offer a taste of carnival events to patrons in the south.

However, it is expected that fans of Burning Flames from all over Saint Lucia, and visitors alike will gather at the euphoric ambience of Utopia Gardens -Beauchamps, Micoud for this Burning Flames homecoming.

With a solid repertoire of hits stemming from the 80’s when the group was formed, with original members Toriano “King Onyan” Edwards, David “Krokuss” Edwards and Clarence “Oungku” Edwards and Rone “Foxx” Watkins, Burning Flames is known to have patrons dancing for hours non-stop during each performance.

Hits like “If You Get What You Want Tonight”, “Stiley Tight”, “Carnival Train,” “Tout Moun Danse”, “Workey, Workey”, “Swinging Engine”, “Magician (I Command You)”, “Bicycle”, and “Island Girl,” to name but a few, will be sure to bring back great memories.

Burning Flames has been very influential in bringing about the modernization of Soca in the Eastern Caribbean, and in turn being a huge influence on the evolution of Soca and the advent and utilization of the drum machine, digital sampler, electronic drums and other emerging music technologies and techniques in Soca.

Sunday’s event which is being described as “the hype of the summer” will also feature Saint Lucian monarchs; Invader, Kakal, Alpha, Arthur and Sly. Keeping the party flowing as well, will be DJ Shawn and DJ Small Boy out of NYC and Twinz of Twinz.

The event is expected to get underway from 2 PM and will be hosted by Mr. Legacy. Tickets cost EC$100 regular, VIP $300 with a premium limited package for four at $850.
