Big People Ting: Farmer Nappy on Soca + Big People Parties

Words by Saxon Baird—

Farmer Nappy 2

Farmer Nappy has been a major player in the soca scene for over 30 years but it’s only recently that he’s become more a household name in Trinidad and beyond. This year, Nappy scored a major hit with his song “Big People Party,” a groovy soca tune that came in second in this year’s road march to the surprise of everyone, including Farmer Nappy himself. With more and more soca being influenced by EDM, Nappy’s hit was recorded with a full band, channeling a classic calypso sound without sacrificing any of the flag-waving energy soca is known for. With carnival season over in Trinidad, Nappy recently brought the party to New York, celebrating the release of his album, also called Big People Party. We caught up with Nappy in Brooklyn to discuss the new album and what it takes to throw a real “big people party.”
