Stalin headlines Little Carib show
Foreday Mornin’ Entertainment will present Love Yuh Own … in celebration of Calypso Music at the Little Carib Theatre, corner White and Roberts streets, Woodbrook, tonight from 8 o’clock.
Headlining the cast will be the Black Stalin. With a commendable half-century of experience in the calypso arena, Black Stalin has succeeded in remaining relevant today in a society he has challenged to think and reflect on burning social and political issues of our time.
Widely regarded as one of the most humble and easy-going personalities in calypso, he has unleashed a slew of self-composed hits including Love Yuh Own, after which the concert is titled.
Ace guitarist, composer and arranger Theron Shaw and his band will accompany Stalin. While he executes comfortably in just about any genre of music, Shaw’s distinct leaning is towards Caribbean jazz. Rounding off the slate of performers are Natasha Joseph, a skilful double second pan player, and vocalist Krisson Joseph.
Tickets are $200 each and will be available at the Little Carib box office from 10 am to 2 pm. Contact 645-8155 or e-mail [email protected] for more details.
