Lord Kitchener

Lord Kitchener (born Aldwyn Roberts) shares with Mighty Sparrow the title of the world's best known Calypso singer. He began his career in Trinidad and won his first Road March award for singing in 1946. In 1948, Kitch emigrated to England in the company of singer Lord Beginner and newsreel footage of the time shows him singing "London Is the Place for Me." In less than two years, he and Beginner were recording for EMI. Kitch enjoyed massive popularity in England, winning the support and affection of England's Princess Margaret. In the 1950s, he toured West Africa and enjoyed a big hit there with his single, "Nora." Like many calypsonians, Kitch drifted toward soca and in 1978 hit the charts with "Sugar Bum Bum." Additonally noted for his hit single, "Give Me the Ting," he died February 12, 2000 at the age of 77. ~ Leon Jackson, Rovi

Miss you Lord Kitch. You were one of the greatest and the only one who could write calypso for pan. Rain come an wash out mas in May. This was in 1973 in response to the polio outbreak in 1972 and the decision to reschedule Carnival from the Monday and Tuesday after Ash Wednesday to May.

No mention of his beautiful songs written for steelpan? No one has stepped up to fill the void left by his passing. Lord Kitch is missed.

One of the most tactful, inventive and talented Kaiso artists of his era and of ours. His songs, with it's melodic rhythms, will remain legendary.
