You all know the name Ras Shorty I? The late Garfield Blackman was a Trinidadian Calypsonian, and pan arranger. In our day he is highly respected as one of the key persons behind the development of Calypso's most popular variant, SOCA.
Next Tuesday (October 6, 2009), The Trinbago Unified Calysponians Organisation (TUCO) - North Zone will honour the deceased music icon on Harris Promenade, San Fernando. TUCO will be hosting a Vintage Kaiso Show.
If Ras Shorty I were with us today, October 6th would have been his 68th birthday. So, if you're in Trinidad and you love soca, you should check it out. The show starts at 8 pm.
Love and History!
