#FridayFinds This video from shows Lord Kitchener reflecting on what it was like to be a calypsonian in the 1940s and 1950s.

Known as the Road March King and the Grandmaster of Calypso, Kitchener (born Aldwyn Roberts) won the National Road March competition eleven times. He also won the 1975 National Calypso Monarch with his calypso “Tribute to Spree Simon.”

Both a composer and performer, Kitchener was at the forefront of Trinidad’s music scene for several decades, taking both local and international audiences by storm with his performances of songs like “Cricket, Lovely Cricket” (1950), Mama This is Mas (1964), “Miss Tourist (1968), “Rain-o-rama” (1973), Sugar Bum Bum (1978) and Bee’s Melody (1992).

Over the course of his career, he wrote over 350 songs, running his own calypso tent called Calypso R***e, and composing the music for 18 Panorama victories.

Kitchener was posthumously honoured and recognized as a national icon by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago.

This video is part of the NATT Audiovisual Collection.

As we continue to celebrate Calypso History Month, I am sharing with you some of my favourite Calypsos. 🎶 🎶 🎶
This classic from 1994 is most appropriate, but I do not agree with the sentiments expressed therein for the year 2021. Allyuh lewwe go and do the people wuk please. We need to be even more productive over the next few fiscal years to improve GDP and eliminate the deficit caused by COVID 19. Enjoy and be safe out there.

CALYPSO...BEYOND BOUNDARIES & BORDERS!!!

OCTOBER IS CALYPSO HISTORY MONTH...BY CALYPSO OUR STORIES ARE TOLD!!!

It's #CalypsoHistoryMonth, and last Sunday was the Mighty Shadow's birthday... So we're throwing it back to the Marionettes adult and youth choirs performing a choral arrangement by Desmond Waithe of this classic Mighty Shadow Trinidad Carnival Road March-winning soca hit — "Stranger" — at Queen's Hall, Trinidad & Tobago, in December 2018. We hope it brings so joy in these challenging times. ❤️🇹🇹

Tuco Trinidad-Tobago

The President, National Executive and membership of TUCO wish to express our condolences and sympathy to the family of Mr. Dennis Hall known in the entertainment world as "Sprangalang" who passed away on the evening of 2nd October, 2020 at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt. Hope.

Mr. Hall was a comedian, historian, actor, producer, talk show host, singer/composer and a Lifetime Member of TUCO.

Mr. Hall starred in the 2003 situation comedy Lord Have Mercy! which was produced in Canada for VisionTV but has also aired on Caribbean International Network and other television stations in the Caribbean in the years since it was produced. He was also featured in the 2007 Canadian feature film A Winter Tale, written, directed and produced by Frances-Anne Solomon, as well as the stage play A Man in the Bedroom, alongside fellow Trinidadian comedian Errol Fabien in 2010. Mr. Hall was also known for his stinging stand up comedy and toured the Caribbean, the Americas and Europe.

To his wife, Natasha “S*xy Suzie” Nurse, family and loved ones, we at TUCO are here with you.

May he Rest In Peace. Asè

Great is Calypso ( the history of Calypso) a musical masterpiece composed by Gregory Ballantyne produced by Calliston "Cally" Pantor and sung by Carlton Louison. I would like to humbly submit as a theme song for Calypso History Month 2020.
Now is the time we need our calypsonians to write something and sing something to lift us up
Why return to two calypsoes. Show too long! Scrunter ask why stands not full! That's the answer. Contestants deserve better 😟😟
What's the number for the TUCO Tobago office?
You not looking after your Icon's. Rev. Bishop Victor Phillip.
After the back door entry into the Road March Competition, TUCO needs to revisit the rules. I write and sing a song along with two others then I am 50% owner of the winnings not 1/3 according to the thinking of many.
why this corrupt stupid organization does get on stupid so? where the information for Carnival? Why all you insist on KILLING the people culture!? NOBODY cares about all you friends -- ONE MILLION PEOPLE in Trinidad are stakeholders SHARE THE INFORMATION!!!!
I am interested in entering the Calypso Monarch 2019 competition. What are the rules of the competition? How does one enter the competition? George Rampersad, Singer/composer/pan player/arranger Base: Denmark Tlf. +45 86 26 15 05 Mail: [email protected]
