Webster "Web" Marie is Cadence King

In the early hours of Sunday, October 21, 2012 ,  Webster "Web" Marie  was crowned as the first ever  NCCU Cadence Lypso King.  

"Web" competed against 19 other finalists to win the coveted crown and a cash prize of $15,000. On the way to the throne, he impressed the judges with his performance of "Tutuni" a song written by leading Dominican song writer and performer, MIchelle Henderson.

In second place was Carlyn Xavier, and Janet Azzouz earned the third place. They won cash prizes of $5000 and $2500 respectively.  

 The show was held at the Newtown Savannah and was well-attended by Cadence Lypso lovers who danced and grooved to the infectious music, which comprised old school and new fusions of the Cadence Lypso beat.   

The show was organised by the NCCU  as part of efforts to revitalise the unique and indigenous Cadence Lypso music created by Exile One back in the 1970's.
