Destra shakes Victoria

Destra Garcia came back to Vincieland to perform, it seems, with a vengeance. Her last outing here, at the Cable & Wireless Draw, had left doubts in the minds of local fans. However, those were put to rest for good.
Destra performed a stimulating, exciting set, along with her band Atlantic, that may have lowered in tempo for brief moments though not in intensity. {{more}}She was all energy as she jumped and waved and shook her lithe body to the delight of both male and admiring female fans through her popular hit songs including “Bonnie And Clyde”. This was a performance reminiscent of her compatriot Machel Montano with whom she works, but so much more appealing.
She paid homage to our own Kevin Little’s success on the Soca circuit, before ending her set that ran non-stop over an hour, with thousands of Vincentians kicking up dust, literally. That brought a fitting end to a memorable evening at the Victoria Park that had started with the Queen of Calypso competition.
Destra sang “I’m Your Queen” and there were many wishing they could be her king! A great set! And at the end, few were in a hurry to leave the Park, late hour notwithstanding.
