Gloria and Robert,
! Thank you for publishing the 2014 Caribbean-American calendar.
Last year I called your magazine to complain that I did not receive my 2013 calendar and I was extremely disappointed when told that the magazine did not print one after 35 consecutive years of presenting it.
I was informed of the numerous calls the maga- zine was receiving from readers and you pledged to do one for 2014.
Thank you for keeping your promise.
FL Glad you gave us the 2014 Global Caribbean Calendar.
King Short Shirt
Glad you changed the name “EVERYBODY’S Caribbean-American Calendar” to “EVERYBODY’S Global Calendar.” You have now included me.
I reside in the UK but I cherish your calendar for carnival dates and other festival events in the Caribbean Diaspora and I am a faithful subscriber of your magazine.
I’m glad you recognize your magazine is not only appreciated by readers in the US but those of us living in other parts of the Caribbean Diaspora.
Johnson Bennett Manchester,
I was in disbelief when you said that the reason you did not print a 2013 Caribbean-American calendar was the lack of support by Caribbean tourism executives and one tourist board not paying for its advertising insert.
I have been a reader of your magazine for over two decades and I cannot understand why a business in the Caribbean that markets its products and services in North America would not advertise or lend its support to a magazine that is relevant to Caribbean people living in the US.
Michelle Granderson Brooklyn,
! [email protected] Thank you for providing the Caribbean carnival dates worldwide.
Your choice of Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer as Person of the Year is a wonderful one and well deserved.
I visited Antigua a couple of weeks ago and talking to the grassroots people they are very pleased with his leadership especially in the area of education.
How much were you paid for having Baldwin Spencer as your Caribbean Person of the Year
? [email protected] I have always respected EVERYBODY’S magazine and read it frequently when I lived in Westchester,
I must say to you: Shame on you
! Shame on you for declaring Baldwin Spencer as your esteemed magazine,
what has he done for our nation since becoming prime minister.
[email protected] Your choice of Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer as the magazine’s Person of the Year was a wise decision and I agree with your rationale.
He has brought back Antigua and Barbuda from the pit of moral decay and international ridiculing to a highly respected and admired nation by world leaders and the international business community.
he has been successful in spite the downfall of the global economy.
she remained one of the top female athletes in the world.
She is a woman of class and a true ambassador of Jamaica and the region.
I have nothing against Baldwin Spencer.
He is unknown and leads a small nation.
represents the now generation of Caribbean people.
Wake up and smell the coffee
? [email protected] Those people and children from Allan Bakery again dominating the cover
! [email protected] Why Allan’s Bakery always highlighted on the cover and given so many pages in the calendar
? [email protected] EDITOR RESPONSE: To the reader in San Francisco and to other people living in cities in the US and Canada who complained that we did not list their annual carnival in the 2014 calendar: We do not list events that cannot be confirmed and events without an annual consistent date.
there was a change of date in Toronto carnival and St.
a few persons requested vacation to go to St.
We list events we are confident will happen.
Although Allan’s is prominent many small businesses such as daycare centers,
barbershops and church organizations purchase the calendar in bulk from 10 to 100 to give their clients.
Instead of decrying us for featuring the business that presents the annual calendar,
you should write your tourist offices,
airline and other Caribbean companies that sell their products abroad asking them: Why are they not in the magazine
? LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: email them to [email protected] com.
praise and criticisms with other readers.

here’s a feeling that calypso is back.
Since calypso never went away,
perhaps some fans are referring to calypso as presented in Trinidad & Tobago.
the winning tune of the calypso king or calypso monarch in Trinidad & Tobago instantly became a hit across the calypso islands and in the Caribbean Diaspora.
Islands that present a carnival now have highly developed carnival structures including steelpan,
calypso and soca events and they are no longer dependent on Trinidad & Tobago for cultural leadership.
witty songs and social commentaries once the hallmark of the Trinidad brand is flourishing in islands such as Dominica and Barbados.
for calypsos mainly focusing on domestic political affairs and ridiculing or praising political parties and their leaders are the criteria for getting into,
the National Calypso Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago may have turned off fans.
The talk about soca killing calypso is just as baseless.
The possibility of calypso killing soca is farfetched but more realistic than soca killing calypso.
Calypso will survive without soca but soca cannot survive without calypso.
one of the powerful emperors of soca,
sang a calypso to win his first International Soca Monarch.
was the International Soca Monarch of 2001.
Machel Montano who has created a vast soca empire started off singing calypso as a preteenager.
Young Roderick “Chucky” Gordon and other emerging calypsonians gave a good account of themselves in the 2014 calypso tents and competitions.
the 2014 National Calypso Monarch and a 2014 International Soca Monarch semifinalist,
will be serenading mothers at this year’s “Mother We Love You Concert” on Mother’s Day Saturday,
oderick “Chucky” Gordon won the Lord Brynner National Independence Calypso Monarch in 2012,
a competition organized to commemorate Trinidad & Tobago 50th Anniversary of Independence (1962-2012).
Roderick “Chucky” Gordon,
T&T 50TH Anniversary of Independence Calypso Monarch and rising soca star.
named in honor of the late Lord Brynner who captured the first independence calypso crown in 1962 when Trinidad & Tobago became a sovereign nation.
a 24-year created a footnote that future historians will include when they write about the 50th anniversary of Trinidad & Tobago independence celebrations.
became one of the youngest artists to win the National Calypso Monarch.
The media brands him a “young-generation calypsonian.” The pundits have been saying that calypso is dying and it is overshadowed by soca.
Chucky Gordon is proving them wrong.
Chucky also sings soca.
! He was a semifinalist in this year’s International Soca competition.
The Mother’s Day Saturday Concert is Chucky Gordon’s first appearance in NY since attaining the prestigious 2014 National Calypso Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago.
and 2014 International Soca Monarch Finalist.

hen we hear the word “lyrical,” right away we think of someone who is excellent in expressing his emotions in an imaginative and beautiful way.
anytime the name Lyrikal was mentioned,
partygoers and soca music enthusiasts all over the world thought of only one guy: International recording artiste,
“What makes this artiste so special
?” his growing fans frequently ask.
Apart from being an exceptional act,
he represents so much to so many.
He started his career singing in the Brooklyn Caribbean scene and then traveled back to his homeland to try his hand at a very difficult music industry.
we have heard of the struggles of new artistes trying to break in to the soca industry,
but doing so is even harder for Caribbean American artistes.
What Lyrikal continues to accomplish year after year has opened many doors for other artistes who are based internationally and are trying to get recognized in a tough business. Dubbed “Brooklyn’s Artiste,” Lyrikal has managed to be a consistent voice on Trinidad and Tobago radio for the last four years and one of the most sought after performing artistes for about ten years.
his music releases landed him a spot in the finals of the International Soca Monarch competition.
He continues to climb the musical chart as he begins a tour that will take him to London,
His Mother usually patronizes the annual Mother’s Day Saturday Concert at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts.
What a thrill for mother and son

re they really Jamaican folk singers
?”Someone who saw them in concert quipped.
The person was mesmerized by the wide selection of Caribbean music,
People at the Mother’s Day Saturday concert and those who are bringing their mom,
wife and sweetheart can expect to hear the group take them back in time to hear Lord Kitchener,
the Roaring Lion and other vintage as well as the songs of Bob Marley and Harry Belafonte.
The Braata Jamaica Folk Singers are fast becoming one of the Caribbean’s leading performing arts ensembles.
The group has established itself among Jamaicans and others in the wider Caribbean Diaspora for its unique
and dynamic presentation of the region’s folk music,
combining new choral arrangements with intricate choreography,
The result is a theatrical presentation best described as “choral theater.”
hen Singing Sandra won the National Calypso Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago in 2003 she became the first,
was achieved almost two decades after Calypso Rose shattered the barrier that protected men to control the calypso crown as if it was only created for male artists.
Her family roots are in Gouyave,
Sandra goes to Gouyave to perform in the town’s biggest festival,
during her early career she teamed with other female calypsonians to form the singing group known as the United Sisters.
Others in the group were Tigress,
“Woe Donkey” was a massive hit of the United Sisters.
Sandra is an immaculate performer but her trade mark is her powerful lyrics.
and “Voices from the Ghetto” are calypso classics.
Her tribute to Nelson Mandela was one of the most educational and meaningful calypsos of the Trinidad & Tobago 2014 carnival season.
ony Ricardo is one of Guyana’s most famous artists but few people except Guyanese know he is Guyanese.
Tony Ricardo was associated with the famed Trinidad Troubadours band as its featured vocalist.
His love ballads and other hits including “Mother,
We Love You,” “West Indian Men Could Duck,” “Tell Them I Am Not Home,” and “Please Come Back” are on his new CD,
Expect Tony Ricardo to make every mother happy at the Mother’s Day Saturday concert when he sings for them,
We Love You” and he may even collaborate with Sparrow on one of his classics.
Calypso is back
a Shadow fan created a blog http://shadowlingo.wordpress.com/ to celebrate Shadow’s unique contribution to calypso,
wrote “The following are excerpts from a paper ‘Shadow Farm: Animal Cruelty as Allegory in the Music of Shadow’ that I presented at the annual conference of the Caribbean Studies Association in Barbados,
They have been edited slightly to be presented together here.
“…One of Shadow’s chief concerns is the question of intelligences other than humanity’s.
robots and computers punctuate Shadow’s oeuvre and stand out as some of his most popular Calypsos,
especially among the cultish King Short Shirt
“King Short Shirt is the most underrated calypsonian in the region.” The writer is correct.
King Short Shirt is the reason why Trinidad & Tobago enacted laws stating that only nationals of Trinidad & Tobago are eligible to compete and win the Road March and Calypso Monarch titles.
If legislation was not hurriedly passed King Short might have won the 1976 Road March with his hit,
“Tourist Leggo.” Yet calypso fans believe that Short Shirt no longer performs.
He does not perform in NY frequently preferring to work in the Caribbean and avoid the hassle of immigration and long distance flying.
Short Shirt remains Antigua and Barbuda’s most revered and popular entertainer.
McLean Leroy Emanuel known as the artist King Short Shirt has been given one of the highest citations Antigua and Barbuda.
He is now Sir McLean Emanuel.
“When Short Shirt gets on a stage,
[or should we say Sir Emanuel,] he controls the stage.
Calypso is back horde of Shadow fans who feel rightly that they are privy to a body of secret knowledge that goes entirely missed on the dance floor of the Carnival fete.
Shadow’s favourite tactic in his conjuring of exogenic intelligences is to employ a role reversal between humans and those other beings,
Humanity itself is critiqued through many such mirrors provided by these alternative intelligences of Shadow’s.
And often we humans find ourselves stripped bare and laid low beside the piled tissues of our conceits.
“Here we might consider one of the most beloved categories in Shadow’s aforementioned arsenal of exogenous consciousnesses: animals,
and the dark glass they hold up to humanity’s idea of itself and its place in nature.
“Shadow has many Calypsos on the topic of animals,
including ‘Story of Life’ (1973 and 1976) as previously explored,
‘Evolution’ parts I and II (1979),
“Many of these songs feature sentient and even talking animals,
usually serving some kind of allegorical function.
Curry and Crow.’” What the blogger focused on is one strand in Shadow’s vast compositions on the human condition.
Expect Shadow to sing about love and togetherness on the Mother’s Day Show.
A Calypso Rose
Sweeter Than Ever
lthough it is the policy of EVERBODY’S to invite different artists each year to perform at the Mother’s Day Saturday concert.
The magazine is breaking its own rule.
as the young generation of female calypsonians calls her,
stronger than ever and sweeter than ever.
She is always on tour.
Recent performances included venues in China,
Slinger Francisco “Take Mom to See Me and Come Too”
Slinger Francisco who is to be presented the highest award Trinidad & Tobago can bestow on its citizens,
and the man who built the original Mother’s Day Caribbean concert is performing at this year’s Mother’s Day Concert.
“What a treat for calypso fans and for mothers whom Sparrow plans to sing to,” says Michelle Young,
“I am very happy to be back on the Mother’s Day concert card.”
Actress and Comedienne
resh from the World Laugh Festival in Trinidad & Tobago,
Susan Kennedy is the MC of the May 10,
Mother’s Day Saturday concert.
Susan first love is acting.
EVERYBODY’S Magazine knowing that Susan had more talents stored away hired her to MC its calypso and soca tent in Brooklyn.
She did a phenomenal job in the Tents of 2011,
Fans discovered she is a fantastic MC-comedian.
other promoters and producers are seeking Susan to MC their events.
Expect Susan to do a magnificent job on Susan Kennedy May 10,
