POSTED: 02/13/12 7:34 PM

St. Maarten – Denisia “Lil Blossom” Martimbor, St Maarten’s junior calypso queen and her sister, Janesia’ Sunshine’ Martimbor will be guest artists at the junior calypso finals today  in the Queen’s Park Savannah in Trinidad and Tobago.

The trip by the two was in response to an invitation by the Trinidad & Tobago Unified Calypsonian Organization, Tufco and they are scheduled to perform while the judges are deliberating on the results.

According to the girls’ proud mother Joanne Lewis who is also from the twin island republic, it will not be the first time her daughters will be travelling there, but it’s the first time they will have an opportunity to perform at such a prestigious event.

In addition to the performance on the big stage Lil Blossom and Sunshine will also be on stage at another event on the Brian Lara promenade on Carnival Wednesday. “They are really excited about this trip and I am so happy and I told them they are fortunate because I am a Trinidadian and I never performed there,” Lewis stated.

Lewis, who works at PJD2 Radio says that the exposure will be excellent for Lil Blossom, who has to defend her title and Sunshine who made a vow at the end of the 2011 competition that this is going to be her year to capture the title.

For the second time there will be a rivalry between sisters in the junior Carnival competition and that scenario will place the parents for the two between a rock and a hard place.

“We know that there is going to be some keen competition between them, the judges’ decision will always be final and anybody can take the crown but we have to do everything for them to maintain the winning edge. I don’t know what is going to happen between them,” Lewis said.

Lewis added that after performing on the big stage and at the Brian Lara promenade they would both return to St Maarten with a wealth of knowledge and would be able to show the other participants how it’s done in Trinidad & Tobago.
