Hot! Lush! Shark & Bake! Wings restaurant! Crazy elections! As I write this, I sit in my apartment at Auzonville Heights in Tunapuna, a suburb of Port of Spain and immediately adjacent to The University of the West Indies. My long time partner-in-crime, Rhodessa Jones and I are conducting an intensive three-week rehearsal period with three of the best female calypso singers on the island, Singing Sandra,
Shereen Ceasar and Kizzie Ruiz. We are working with a talented group of accompanying musicians as well on the musical theater production, “An Evening With Three Women of Calypso”, a collaboration between the National Performance Network’s Performing Americas Program, the University of the West Indies, and Cultural Odyssey.
This is Cultural Odyssey’s fourth visit to Trinidad through assistance from the NPN and this trip culminates a remarkable creative and spiritual time here in the West Indies. “Three Women of Calypso” will tour to four American cities in 2011 including San Francisco.
