A theatrical production, titled "Kaiso Gone Dread:
Stalin Unmasked," is being staged on Friday in cel-
ebration of the 74th birthday of calypsonian Black
Stalin (Dr Leroy Calliste).
The show being presented by SR Ideal Theatre Pro-
duction Company along with the Calliste family, will
be held at the Southern Academy for the Performing
It will feature a cast of 25, which includes the Last
Bardjohn of Calypso Kurt Allen, Brother Valentino, spo-
ken-word artiste Akil Wallace as well as young artiste
Kellon and Karriann Bowrin and Antonet Ross, a
Guyanese national. Production directors are Shevaughn
Ragbir and Candice Andrews
At a media conference at Atherly s restaurant, Sutton
Street, San Fernando, on Monday, Andrews said 25 per
cent of the proceeds will go towards Stalin s family to
assist in his recovery. Stalin suffered an ischemic stroke
one year ago and has been recuperating at his San Fer-
Andrews said the production, which is a year in
making, was guided largely by references from the book,
A Pictorial Journey: Black Stalin, written by local author
Marie Diann Dupre.
Kellon, who is just seven-years-old, gave a teaser of
what to expect with a riveting performance of verses
from a number of Stalin s hits, including Burn Dem and
Freedom Song. Bowrin and Ross also performed.
Allen, who was also present, applauded their efforts.
"I want to applaud the efforts of these youths for
seeing the need to do this. Nobody asked them to do
it and they didn t wait to see who or which cultural
group would do it.
"You don t have to be a singer of calypso to be a
calypsonian. Anyway you lend support and promote
artiste, calypsonian, the artform and its cultural icons
is your way of being a calypsonian, a lover of calypso,
of the word.
"This would also contribute to lending Stalin some
strength. We know he is facing some challenges right
now and we want to say we are here for you."
Ragbir said while many people paid tribute to our
cultural icons after their death, they were happy to
honour Stalin while he was alive.
Stalin has been out of the limelight during his recovery
and his manager, Ian Small, said he could not confirm
whether the calypso bard who gave his blessings to the
production, would attend.
"Time would tell," said Small.
