In the footsteps of the ‘Grandmaster’

“This one was actually for daddy. He premeditated this one.” So said soca composer Kernel Roberts to the Sunday Express yesterday.

Roberts penned this year’s Road March hit “Band of the Year” and made it clear it was to continue the “legacy” of his father, the calypso legend Aldwyn Roberts, known to all as Lord Kitchener, the composer of ten Road March titles.

“Band of the Year” by soca starlet Patrice Roberts (no relation to the Kitchener clan) and soca superstar Machel Montano rocked the radio airways, fueled the fetes and parties this Carnival season and ultimately grabbed the coveted Road March title.
