Nishard Mayhroo

Chutney soca artiste Nishard M is living his best life. The back-to-back Chutney Soca Monarch (CSM) won his second consecutive title alongside Neval Chatelal with “Fyah” at Carnival 2019. Since then he has been selected along with Chatelal as the official musical ambassador of the biannual regional cultural showcase of the Caribbean Festival of the Arts (Carifesta). And he broke new ground in June as the first chutney soca act to perform at Atlantic City carnival in New Jersey, United States.

Significantly the gifted vocalist, born Nishard Mayhroo in Fyzabad in 1987, has been able to achieve all of the above while staying true to his commitment to tell positive uplifting stories through his music.

THE medieval emperor Charlemagne once said, “To know a second language is to possess a second soul.”

Family practitioner Dr Visham Bhimull has personally experienced the truth of those words. He speaks several languages but two languages in particular—Caribbean Hindustani and Hindi speak to his soul because they are the languages of his ancestors. Having a command of those languages has helped the physician to fully embrace his Indo-Trinidadian identity and honour the legacy of those who came before him.
