The National Cultural Foundation (NCF) stages the Junior Monarch Competition to offer young Barbadians to learn the artform of creating music and express themselves through the rhythms of calypso and soca, two of the island’s most beloved musical genres.

The biggest calypso competition on the island, the Pic O De Crop Finals, features the best calypsonians on one stage. This year, 17 finalists will do battle against reigning monarch Quon.
