We have heard the story so many time summarized by others. Everyone has their version as to how Bunji Garlin and Machel Montano ended up doing a collaboration that shocked the Soca scene. Carnival Sunday Machel Montano joined Bunji Garlin and Fay- Ann Lyons on stage for a surprise performance of “Buss Head” during the Kairi People’s annual Breakfast is all inclusive.
The receptive crowd cheered in anticipation as Machel shared the stage with his once rival.
How did we come to this point?
How is it that during the 2017 Trinidad Carnival season both Bunji and Machel had been popping up on each other’s sets? Was this just publicity or did they really bury the hatched? What even caused the initial riff?
As a conduit between the music and the culture, Giselle The Wassi One had an opportunity to speak with the collective after the high energy ” Breakfast Is” performance. Being a long time friend of both families and God Sister to Fay – Ann Lyons, the conversations flowed naturally. At one point, they completely forgot about the cameras and got comfortable.
This is the “Life Of a Legend”, the power of time, relationships, passion, and commitment. As we continue on this journey discovering Caribbean culture, music, and heritage through carnival we will witness the impact that The Wassi One has had on entertainment and entertainers across the Caribbean and Caribbean communities.
More than music, witness the candidness of the conversations and how freely these very private artists share their stories and experiences. Watch as The Wassi One uncovers the story of “Buss Head”.

Why Life Of a Legend?
One of the most unifying events and cultural and creative extravaganza, which is celebrated in the Caribbean region is Carnival. For three decades Giselle The Wassi One has invested her time to the promotion of Caribbean Culture through Carnival. Carnival finds its social and historic origin in the region and is an expression of culture that encapsulates music, dance, costumes, pageantry, and performance. While Carnival is celebrated in various styles and with slightly different names throughout the Greater Caribbean, there is one common interest: the manifestation of a cultural pluralism amongst its participants.
The strength and appeal of cultural events and festivals as an essential component of the tourism product of a country should not be overlooked. In this regard, the multi-dimensional nature of ‘Carnival’ provides one of the most direct and tangible opportunities for travelers to see and also engage in various aspects of the local culture.
Tourism and culture enjoy a highly symbiotic and mutually beneficial relationship.
Culture in its many forms and expressions functions as tourist sites and attractions, which can be both educational as well as entertaining to visitors. Tourism, in turn, has proven to add value by serving as one of the main driving forces to preserve and strengthen indigenous cultural identity, while at the same time making a positive contribution to social and economic development.
