My World

The world according to me!

Everything will be Irie

One of my favourite Calypsonians is Timothy Watkins, the Baron. He has the sweetest voice in calypso. His style is effortless. And when he sings the sun shines brighter, honest.

This is an almost 20 year old performance from Mr. Watkins. Don’t worry he’s still going strong. I believe it’s his Dimanche Gras performance of “Somebody”.

Of course then I found this 2008 performance of Melosian Rapsody, which is one of my favourites from him.

His signature tune, an introduction of sorts, is one of the most honest, yet well deserved vanity pieces in calypso. Sweet Soca Man is by far a favourite of anyone with ears, you can hear a clip of it here.

We should play  more of his music on the radio.
