<>, a annonc? la page officielle Instagram du groupe ce jeudi 11 novembre. Oui, Harmonik est bien pr?sent en Martinique pour une tourn?e mise en branle du 11 au 14 novembre 2022. C’est l’occasion pour les Martiniquais qui avaient rat? le groupe au mois d’ao?t dernier de se rattraper. Plusieurs villes dont Morne-Rouge, Diamant, pourront bouger aux rythmes des prot?g?s de Rodney Noel.

Le jeudi 10 novembre, dans la soir?e, tout est mis en place pour une r?ussite totale. Harmonik ne commence pas sa tourn?e seul. Il est accompagn? du groupe T-Vice. Un combo parfait pour les f?rus du compas. 20h, Dj Chouchou commence la soir?e et tient le public en haleine en encha?nant les <> les plus connus en Martinique.

22h45, Harmonik est pr?t et Mac D gravit le podium avec le titre “Diferan”, un tube bien connu par le public, qui n’a pas h?sit? ? faire le d?placement en grand nombre. Avec 6 albums dans leur r?pertoire et 14 ans d’existence le groupe poss?de assez de “hit” pour tenir ? chaud le public pendant le temps qui leur est accord?.

De “Cheri Benyenm” ? “Incroyable” en passant par “Egziste” et ”Nou pap ka separe” repris avec la choriste H?l?ne, les fans du groupe, les dames particuli?rement, ont appr?ci? la prestation.

Minuit 48, Harmonik met fin ? sa performance, remercie le public et annonce le groupe T-Vice.

Les difficult?s techniques que rencontrent la bande ? Roberto ne changent en rien ? leur envie de jouer. 1h46, Roberto investi l’esplanade avec “Moving On” et c’est d?j? le coup de foudre. Le public toujours pr?sent en grand nombre reprend ? tue-t?te les chansons avec le groupe. Le c?l?bre Robert Martino devait accompagner le groupe pour cette soir?e, mais pour des raisons de sant? il n’a pas pu ?tre l?, mais sa pr?sence fut compens?e. Avec brio, Roberto a su reprendre les solos de guitare que son p?re devait jouer.

3h28 T-vice cl?ture la f?te avec des sons carnavalesques et bien s?r le fameux “elikopt?” avait toute sa place devant ce public assoiff? de plaisir et fort satisfait. Certains diraient que la bande ? Roberto et Co connait la formule martiniquaise !

La soir?e du vendredi 11 novembre allait ?tre encore une belle soir?e pour le combo Harmonik et T-Vice, au Domaine des Oasis, mais cette soir?e n’a pas pu se tenir suite ? une fusillade enregistr?e dans le local jeudi soir. <>, nous a d?clar? Sanders, un des chanteurs du groupe. Le samedi 12 novembre deux prestations sont ? l’affiche : une qui se tiendra dans la ville de Diamant, afin de cl?turer le MartinikCup, une comp?tition de Jet Ski. Et une autre dans la soir?e, Harmonik & Jet Live au P?le-Nord. Le dimanche 13 le groupe sera au restaurant Man Soufran, mais cette fois de fa?on plus d?contract?e vu que ?a se passe au bord d’une plage.

Bonne nouvelle pour les Guadeloup?ens – et aussi pour Harmonik-, ils auront eux aussi la chance de recevoir leur dose de <>. Le groupe y jouera ce lundi 14 novembre. <>, nous a annonc? le chanteur principal du groupe Mac D, sourire aux l?vres. Ce qui prolonge leur tourn?e jusqu’au 15 novembre. Quoi de mieux qu’une nouvelle date confirm?e pour un groupe en tourn?e ?

Potter’s Chelsea reign looks in crisis after Newcastle loss Loop Jamaica

Black Immigrant Daily News

The content originally appeared on: Jamaica News Loop News

NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Graham Potter’s Chelsea reign already looks to be in crisis after a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday left the London club eighth in the Premier League.

Joe Willock’s 67th-minute strike consigned Chelsea to a third straight loss in the league — and a fourth in five games in all competitions.

It’s a run that will pile the pressure on the former Brighton manager, who has only been in the job for two months.

It will also test the faith that Chelsea’s American owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital have in the man they chose to lead their overhaul of the club. They have already demonstrated their ruthless side when firing Thomas Tuchel in September, just over a year since the German led Chelsea to the Champions League title.

Potter will have to hope his superiors show more patience where he is concerned but alarm bells will be ringing.

A desperate run of results will only fuel concerns that the job was too big and came too soon for a man whose career had previously seen him manage Brighton, Swansea and Swedish team Ostersunds.

And it could still get worse for Chelsea, with Fulham having the chance to move up to eighth on Sunday with a win against Manchester United.

Either way, it promises to be an uncomfortable World Cup break for Potter as the English season pauses until Christmas.

“It is not nice for us,” Potter told Sky Sports. “We are in a bad moment. We take the break to recharge and go again.

“Sometimes you have to accept the struggles you have. It is about regrouping and starting again. It is the second half of the season and there is a long way to go.”

It is a completely different story for Eddie Howe, whose Newcastle team continued its outstanding start to the season.

This was a fifth-straight win in the league to move to within two points of second-place Manchester City.

The Saudi-backed club will go into the World Cup break third in the standings and looking like genuine contenders for Champions League qualification, if not more.

“I feel immense pride at how the players have performed consistently,” Howe said. “Now the challenge is to maintain and enhance that. We’ll focus on what we think we can improve as a team. Hopefully the boys can come back from the World Cup in good spirits.

“I’ll enjoy maybe a few days off, but then the challenge is to come back and make sure we hit the ground running.”


World Cup 2022: Neymar says Qatar could be his last Loop Jamaica

Black Immigrant Daily News

Neymar is unsure whether he will get the opportunity to represent Brazil at another World Cup after this year’s tournament in Qatar.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward will appear at his third World Cup later this month, where he will be looking to lead Brazil to their first triumph at the tournament for 20 years.

Neymar will be 34 years old by the time the 2026 World Cup begins, and with little certainty whether he will feature in that tournament, he hopes to cement a place in football history by leading Brazil to glory in Qatar.

“I’ll play like it’s the last,” Neymar told Globo. “I talk to my father, we always talk. [I’ll] play each game as if it were the last because you don’t know what will happen tomorrow.

“I can’t guarantee that I’ll play another [World] Cup. I honestly don’t know. I’ll play like it’s the last.

“Maybe I’ll play another one, maybe not. It depends. There’s going to be a coaching change [when Tite steps down after the World Cup] and I don’t know if that coach will like me.

“I’ve already built a long history in the national team and, for sure, I want to finish it well.

“I’m happy. I like to play football and I like to win. I like to be better than I am every day. I like helping my team-mates, which is the main thing. I hope my name is engraved in football history.”

Asked about Brazil’s chances of glory in Qatar, Neymar added: “I want to play this cup, dedicate myself to it, because I’m sure we have the potential to go very far.

“Although a lot of people don’t believe in us, we will prove otherwise. I see that this national team has a lot of good things, and I see that we can go very far.”

Since making his World Cup debut on home soil in 2014, Neymar has been directly involved in 42 per cent of Brazil’s 19 goals in the tournament (six goals, two assists).

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old has scored 75 times in 121 appearances for Brazil, putting him just two goals short of Pele’s Selecao record of 77.

While Neymar will be expected to trouble that record when Brazil face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in their Group G campaign in Qatar, he says he is not driven by the desire to better Pele’s feats.

“It’s more than I imagined, than I dreamed. I never thought about numbers, I never wanted to overtake anyone, to break a record. I always just wanted to play football,” Neymar said.

“Pele is the reference. Pele is football. Pele is practically everything for our country. The respect and admiration I have for him is enormous.”

Head of the Port of Spain Division Snr Supt Roger Alexander says strategies designed to offer maximum coverage and deter criminals were being finalised for the upcoming Christmas and Carnival seasons for the capital city.

Speaking during a media briefing at the Police Training Academy, St James, on Friday, Alexander was asked about the readiness of the divisional police in managing both events.

Carnival 2023 will be the first Carnival celebrations on the streets since the covid19 pandemic in 2020.

Alexander said while he could not share much details on the crime plans, he understood that increased police presence brought more comfort to the public. He said more mobile and foot patrols would be incorporated in their plans.

He also noted that the police would be collaborating with private security guards at businesses to ensure efficient responses.

“We want to get everybody on board, every security officer, every security network.

“We’re getting these people to communicate with law enforcement and it benefits them to because when something happens they may not be able to handle it on their own so they call law enforcement and we took a page out of his book with that night watchman crime initiative. “

He was referring to the recent murder of 39-year-old Anton Smart on Henry Street in October where the killer was arrested shortly after the shooting.

He said police would be deployed to certain areas to in an effort to arrest criminals quickly.

“We know coming down to the Christmas season everyone wants to break open a store, everybody wants to steal something, so what we did again is we positioned police officers strategically in zones because when someone does something in Port of Spain, nobody runs west, everybody runs to the east, so we will block off the escape routes.”

Acting Police Commissioner McDonald Jacob said the Christmas crime plan would continue into the Carnival season next year as the police anticipated a large turnout of revellers and was prepared to ensure everyone’s safety.
