This great calypso sin

This great calypso sin

So, as I was saying yesterday, Valentino has made his ouster from the Dimache Gras finals, even after he sang “Where Calypso Went” (the lyrics of which I published in the same column), something of a cause celebre among the calypso fraternity, and I won’t be surprised if it now becomes one within the wider society, given the airplay he is getting on Radio Trinbago and the page-play he is getting here, the writer empathising with Valentino, not necessarily on the basis of his calypsoes-of-the-moment-though there are those-but because he may be getting the short end of the calypso stick, perhaps because his is a softer sound searching for space among the hard-edged singers.
