Sooooooo... is that time already!! Summer... CARIBANA is in the air and that means North America's #1 mas band is about to unleash its 2010 presentation.
This year CNz has decided to pay special attention to one of the greatest figures in Caribbean history, something that has never been done before. An entertainer who needs no introduction… the "KING OF CALYPSO"… will be honoured in true CNz fashion for all the awe inspiring music that he has provided to us over the years. Call him by whatever name you know him: "Slinger Francisco" ~ "D'Birdie" ~ "The King"... we at CNz will simply call him "SPARROW D'LEGEND".
His catalogue is enormous, his talent undisputed, his charisma and ability to mesmerize an audience is world-renowned... and in 2010 CNz will bring all those aspects to life in a presentation to celebrate one of our greatest talents, as only West Indians can... in "mas".
So if the following lyrics/lines put an instant smile on your face:
“He eat until he stomach upset… but I never eat ah white meat yet”...
“Tell yuh sister to come down quick I have something here for she”…
“de Lizard run up she leg and disappear”...
“Jane, it is four o’clock in the morning”…
“Well they playing bad, they have me feeling sad… the leader of the gang was hot like ah pepper”…
“Drunk & Disorderly always in custody, meh friends & meh family… all man fed up with me”…
“Bum bum looking healthy jamming on me purposely... darling doh do that to me… doh back back”...
"Well the girls in town feeling bad… no more Yankees in Trinidad"...
"If yuh hear how this Martiniquian bawl... Sa Sa Yeah… Bunjay"…
"Melda oh yuh making wedding plans, carrying meh name to Obeah Man"...
“Good morning Mr. Walker, I come to see your daughter”…
"All saltfish sweet!!"
