Leftist And Skylark Want Local Tent

Leftist And Skylark Want Local Tent

The reigning calypso monarch and a former national Road March king are championing a cause for Carriacou and Petite Martinique to have its own calypso tent for Spice Mas 2017.

Leftist (Anderson Matheson) who won his third calypso title at the 2017 Dimanche Gras show and Skylark (James Stafford) who twice ruled the road at the Spice Mas festival have both expressed extreme delight at the standard of calypso produced by artistes from the sister isles this year.

The two artistes say that it would be a forward step if Carriacou and Petite Martinique were to stage their own tent this year so that during the national judging process the judges would travel to the sister isles to adjudicate the artistes at home.  They pointed out that Carriacou has seen one of its best years in calypso, adding that apart from those who made it to the finals, the others were just as impressive.

Leftist who gets an automatic pass into the national semifinal by virtue of having won this year’s Carriacou competition, said he is confident that the material from the sister isles would rank among the best in the nation for 2017.

Stafford, who is also the island’s representative on the National Cultural Foundation, pointed out that he is extremely buoyed by the rise of the artform and the number of artistes who have begun placing greater emphasis on calypso towards their holistic musical development.

Several years ago the late Virginia Fleary Noel and the late Sherma Dickson, facilitated a tent on the sister isles and judges from the mainland traveled there to judge the artistes from Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
