Chutney Brass, T&T s biggest
East Indian music event and one
of Carnival s major attractions,
now boasts a new title sponsor,
Super Industrial Services Limited
(SIS). The event will now be
known as the SIS Chutney Brass.
SIS believes that being a part of
Chutney Brass is the best avenue
through which it can support the
art form and give something back
to the cultural fraternity and cit-
izens, all at once.
SIS accepted the invitation of
Randy Glasgow Productions (RGP)
to join the production team of the
internationally popular event

Coca-Cola, Monster Energy Drink,
C Television (CNMG), 103 FM,
Stag Beer and White Oak Rum.
RGP is in discussions with Ministry
of Tourism and National Lotteries
Control Board to again be a major
sponsor of this year s event.
SIS Chutney Brass takes place
on February 22 at Guaracara Park,
Pointe-a-Pierre, and will feature
Bollywood s biggest female super-
star, playback and pop singer
Sunidhi Chauhan and her full
music band and stage props, join-
ing this region s best chutney

formances there will be a grand
food court set up with a wide
assortment of East Indian cuisine
along with other popular local and
international dishes prepared and
served by the most sought-after
food vendors from across the
island. Full service bars will offer

fruit juices of every variety.

Chauhan is one of the special treats
awaiting patrons and fans coming
in from the Caribbean, London,
Holland, Spain, Miami, Toronto
