Sparrow Dragon

With his ultra-sweet vocals and lyrics that speak of romance and topical politics, Mighty Sparrow (born Slinger Francisco) rose to the upper echelon of Trinidadian calypso. Best known for his hits "Jean and Dinah" in 1956 and "Carnival Boycott" in 1957, Sparrow is an 11-time winner of the calypso monarchy and an eight-time winner of Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival Road March competition. Born to a poor working-class family in Gran Roi, a small fishing village in Grenada, Sparrow moved to Trinidad at the age of one. Learning to sing in the boy's choir of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, he became the head choirboy. At the age of 14, he formed a steel band to perform at the Carnival, sparking his interest in calypso. Teaching himself to play guitar, Sparrow began to write his own songs. Winning the Carnival competition with "Jean and Dinah," he received a grand prize of 40 dollars. In protest, he wrote a scorching indictment of the Trinidadian music industry, "Carnival Boycott." Despite his refusal to compete in the Carnival contests for the next three years, Sparrow became one of the Caribbean's most successful artists. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

From Sacramento California, I am so proud knowing I am a product of T&T and the culture that brought forth such invigorating and influential Artist as Sparrow / Kitchener and a hosts of others.
There are many more songs,that sparrow has. I like the lizzard,run up she foot. Sparrow is the best.
The most influential artist of the Caribbean. His lyrical creativity transcends all calypso writers. Sparrow continues to be the maestro that all Caribbean artist look to with much respect and admiration. Like Bob Marley, Kitchener, Gordon Henderson(of Dominica)spa r r o w ' s music will live for ever.
It is now time that the world embraces Calypso,Cada n c e , a n d Zook,as they do Merrengae, and Reggae. Slinger Francisco(Th e Mighty Sparrow) will live forever in the annals of Caribbean History. Hey Sparrow,
My seven years of living in St. Thomas and St. John let me learn my true rhythm of being an Island girl from the states but I really feel I am from the Islands!! Love the Mightly Sparrow, he is one of the best.
