Mighty Sparrow - The Calypso King of Trinidad mp3 album
Photograph: Max Burkhalter for the Guardian. The lyrical sting of calypso and the instrument associated with it, the steel pan, may be pop’s most embedded form of resistance. Though both islands like to claim him, his ancestors were involuntary immigrants. Sparrow’s gripping track The Slave, from the 1964 album True Life Stories of People, Passion and Politics, set a template for how Caribbean music could interpret its bloody history. Fergusson recalls his friend Bob Marley confiding: When I heard the Mighty Sparrow sing The Slave, I knew what I wanted to do with my music.
