Lord Beginner

Lord Beginner (born Egbert Moore) helped to spark a renaissance for calypso music in the 1940s and '50s. After attracting attention with his soulful singing in Trinidad and Tobago, Lord Beginner was sent by expatriate Portuguese businessman Edward Sa Gomes to New York, along with Attila The Hun and Growling Tiger, to record for the Port-Of-Spain label in May 1934. These recordings helped to introduce calypso to much of the world. Emigrating to England with Lord Kitchener in July 1948, Lord Beginner recorded for the Parlophone label two years later. ~ Craig Harris
