Consultant in the Ministry of Creative Industries Christopher Hunte has reacted to news of plans to include soca and groovy genres as a category at the Grammys.

The red carpet event which was staged last night recognizes the contribution of some of the most talented musicians and artistes in the world.

Mr Hunte notes that several efforts are being made here to encourage local artistes and performers to aim for such worldwide recognition. He points to accomplished musician Ronald Boo Hinkson as one such example who was nominated twice for a grammy award.

Mr Hunte notes that despite strong efforts being put on by the Creative industries to support home grown talent and groom artistes for the international stage, some challenges continue to persist.
