Mighty Sparrow - All The Way To Italy

Copied from Zeno Obi

TOP 20 FOOTBALL CALYPSOES
NUMBER 20
SPARROW [ALL THE WAY TO ITALY]

The failed assault on the 1990 World Cup finals spawned quite a few calypsoes. At my number 20 King Sparrow demonstrates his trade mark style, Against the backdrop of a wide range of activities and events taking place in the country he offers this joyful lament when the team failed. If you want to recall what happened in 1989 the calypso does this, including facts and gossip.

Album : Let The Music PlayArranged By Leston Paul. 1990

The members of the Dynamites calypso tent NY, extend deepest condolences to the family of the legendary Dr Leroy "Black Stalin" Calliste, friends, the calypso fraternity,the people of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean on his passing, he has truly been a blessing to us all.

It is our prayer that he be accepted into the place of eternal peace.
Cache of discarded old 45 rpm vinyl records found in the dirt.
An amazing discovery, - while preparing to plant some coffee in the earth, a collection of old vinyl records were discovered. It appears that it has been lying in the ground buried for in excess of 40 years, since I saw a label on a record of the Lord Kitchener dated 1976. Clearly someone had no use for them. My reaction was that there are probably long lost recordings of lost calypsos. I'll clean up a couple and drop them off by your offices and you could do some kind of restoration and analysis.
A “Taste of Carnival'' activity for the 2022 season has been given a Green Light by our Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts, Sen. Randall Mitchell, but of course, not in the same format as it would have been pre-pandemic.
.
With identified Safe Zone venues and allowance for Vaccinated Persons only, be like “Pan Man” in our short film and understand the importance and need for us to get vaccinated, despite any fears or concerns, if we want our carnival to fully return soon, and to take part in some of the events in the weeks ahead!

Hey everyone. Today on our we pay tribute to the late Antigua and Barbuda Calypso legend 𝗦𝗶𝗿 𝗥𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘁 𝗣𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗼 otherwise known as 𝗞𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗦𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄 who passed away on 11th September 2020 at the age of 78.💐

We will be highlighting one of his songs “𝗧𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗱𝗮𝗱 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗚𝗼𝗱𝗳𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿”, which highlights the Big Brother role that Trinidad and Tobago has taken on in the Caribbean over the years.

He was a four-time Calypso Monarch and five-time Road March winner in Antigua and Barbuda, winning the Calypso Monarch Crown in 1973, 1977, 1978 and 1985. His Road March wins were for the years 1972, 1973, 1975, 1983 and 1984. King Swallow’s music focused on social and political commentary.

Tuco Trinidad-Tobago, the governing body for calypso in Trinidad and Tobago paid tribute to the veteran stating that he has been recognised for contributing nearly 60 years to the soca and calypso art form. He was known for such hits as “Party in Space,” “Subway Jam,” “Fire in the Backseat” and “Man to Man.”

King Swallow was awarded the Order of Merit (Gold), and the Grand Cross of Princely Heritage by the government of Antigua and Barbuda. Each award was conferred in recognition of his sterling contribution to the calypso art form. In 2011 PM Bird recognized his 50 years of artistry and excellence by nominating him to be honoured with a knighthood.
