Barbadian calypsonian the Mighty Gabby
(Anthony Carter) won lots of new fans when he
revealed his talent as a folk singer to the audience
in the Grand Stand at the Queen s Park Savannah,
Port-of-Spain, on Tuesday.
The occasion was a cultural programme with the
theme A Night of Roots and Righteousness. It was
staged by the Emancipation Support Committee
(ESC) to formally open the Lidj Yasu Omowale
Emancipation Village and usher in 2014 Emanci-
The cast included St George s College Musical
Ensemble, Jeunes Agape Choir, Karene Asche, Alana
Sinette, Karega Mandela, Brother Valentino (Emrold
Phillips), Black Stalin (Dr Leroy Calliste), and Gabby.
Seated on a stool at centre stage and accompa-
nying himself with a guitar, Gabby held patrons
spellbound when he trotted out a three-song reper-
toire that included the historical Riots In De Land,
which won him Barbados 1977 Singer of the Year
award; Emmerton, a plaintive tale about the village
of his birth and the eventual destruction of the
community; and an emancipation song encouraging
the black man to "raise yuh hand, for yuh freedom
coming at last."
Finally, backed by the Kelly Green & Harmony
Orchestra, he treated listeners to the popular Boots,
his 1983 composition which questioned the need
for an army in a small state like Barbados.
For a time, the calypso was banned from playing
on the airways.
In 1968 Gabby became the youngest
person ever to win the calypso crown in
Barbados, at 19. Thanks to his hard work
in the development of the art form and
his contribution to Barbadian music, the
nine-time calypso king was eventually
appointed a cultural envoy/ambassador of
The theme of this year s 176th anniver-
sary of Emancipation celebrations is: Repa-
rations: Righting A Historical Wrong.
Chairman of the ESC Khafra Kambon, in
an address, said "if we know who we are,
we would know the breadth of the wrong,
and the need for righteousness."
In the context of the transatlantic slave
trade, he said, reparation refers to righting
a wrong, most specific the crimes against
humanity committed through the slave
trade and enslavement.
"Absolute evidence cited from Eric
Williams to Walter Rodney exists to justify
the argument that the North Atlantic
economies benefited from unjust enrich-
ment of the free labour of enslaved
Africans," he added.
A few minutes after 8 pm, Bro Equino
Moyou led a libation ceremony to open
the programme, after which remarks were
delivered by Rodger Samuel, Minister of
National Diversity and Social Integration;
and Lutalo Masimba (Brother Resistance),
president of Trinbago Unified Calypsoni-
ans Organisation (TUCO).
An hour later, the St George s Musical
Ensemble opened the entertainment seg-
ment with the Mighty Sparrow s Educa-
tion, enthusiastically performing in the
styles of calypso, waltz and jazz. Jeunes
Agape followed with a spirited five-song
repertoire of folk and African songs.
