Five-man Ja team on T&T fightcard tonight
Courtney Wallace
Wednesday, May 02, 2007


Jamaica's five-man boxing team to the Pan-American qualifiers in Trinidad & Tobago will tonight be among the featured acts on the second largest festival in the twin-island republic.

The team, led by gold medallist and Caribbean champion Nicholas Walters, will take on local boxers in the main event on the Point Fortin Borough Day celebrations in Southern Trinidad tonight.

Walters last week set the Pan-Am qualifiers alight with his dazzling style, and an excited chief organiser Shaun Barrette said they were looking forward to having the Jamaica team on show.

"Listen man, it's an honour to have the Jamaica contingent in the country because we wanted to bring a... contingent which has respectability based on their achievements.

"Trinidad & Tobago loves Jamaicans so much not just because of their music, but also because of their culture. If added all up, it's a beautiful package and we're really thankful that the Jamaicans were willing to accept..."
Barrette, speaking on the festival itself, said "Trinidad & Tobago has two large festivals, Carnival and Point Fortin Borough Day Celebrations.

"Ask anybody they will tell you half of Trinidad & Tobago comes for Carnival the other half... for the Point Fortin Borough Day Celebrations.

"It's reminiscent of Carnival and the fact that we have almost 15,000 foreign-based nationals, plus tourists, for this event is a major boost and we've been marketing the Jamaicans and... we gonna get a great turnout..."

Point Fortin is one of three boroughs in Trinidad and is celebrating 27 years. Tonight's event starts at 6 o'clock Trinidad time with the fightcard set to get under way around 9:00.

It's being billed as a boxing picnic and will take place on a football field. Patrons are allowed to take food and drink for a "lyme".

The card will also feature female boxing, which is a big hit in the land of soca. Trinidad's six-time world junior middleweight champion Giselle Salandy, who holds the WBA and WBC belts, will be honoured, along with other top names from the community, including Trinidad-born and former Jamaica national coach Fitzroy Giuseppe, who died while working at a boxing event in Portmore a few years ago.

The Jamaica team last week saw two boxers qualify for the Pan-American games, while two others mined bronze medals for a total haul of four - one gold and three bronze.
Featherweight Walters (gold) and welterweight Ricardo Smith (bronze) are the qualifiers. Lightweight Shaun Wheatly and heavyweight Gerrington Richards won bronze medals, while middleweight Kevin White missed out after being beaten in the first round.

The team is coached by Kingsley Barrette and Job Walters and managed by Kingsley Goodison.

Chalkdust delights audience at Harquail Theatre


Tuesday, May 1, 2007


Chalkdust used a combination of spoken and musical techniques while delivering the CNCF 2007 Cayfest Distinguished Lecture.


“Calypso – The Definitive Art for Caribbean Unity” was the topic of his presentation during the Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF) 2007 Cayfest Distinguished Lecture held last week.

Through a combination of music and conversation, he explained how the musical art form of calypso has helped towards the goal of Caribbean unity. Dr Liverpool, known as Chalkdust in the calypso world, is a world-renowned Trinidad & Tobago calypsonian, historian and university professor.

During his presentation he covered a wide-range of topics but that of calypso played an integral part. He described it as an editorial in song and an art form that captures our history in the Caribbean.
In relation to regional integration, Dr Liverpool mentioned some negative and positive attempts.

One negative area was insularity, described as the cause, to a certain extent, of the downfall of the West Indies Federation.

The issue of differing monetary values was also mentioned. Dr Liverpool said it can be a cause of confusion and also highlighted the fact some people feel they are better off because the currency in their country is valued more than that of other territories.

He lamented that it took the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 to get some Caribbean countries to ease travel restrictions. He mentioned how Americans used to whizz though immigration at Caribbean airports without having to present a passport while West Indians needed passports to travel within their own region.

Dr Liverpool also spoke about some positive efforts to regional integration. Some of those mentioned included CXC, CARIFTA, CARIFESTA and CARICOM – bolstered by CSME.

Even with all of these initiatives, Dr Liverpool said it is a musical art form that leads the way towards regional integration. “Of all the agents vying to bring about regional integration none can be as defining as our calypso.”

He described it as a form of creolized rhythm in the Caribbean and said calypso music in carnival touches a special nerve in people.

Dr Liverpool said that over the years more and more calypso tunes have been recorded and there are songs that are deemed ‘Caribbean songs’ and are not necessarily associated to have originated from one country or another.

“To me David Rudder’s ‘Rally Round the West Indies’ is the anthem of the region,” he commented.

He also highlighted that Trinidad used to be known as the centre of carnival but today carnival exists in most Islands.

According to Dr Liverpool, carnival celebrations are so important that some countries have shifted dates to accommodate people traveling to participate in the festivities.

To underscore the importance of carnival in the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago he said that after oil and gas, carnival is Trinidad’s biggest revenue earner.

“Without calypso there is no carnival,” he said. “Music appeals to our senses, it as a medium of celebration.”

The sport of cricket being an important tool towards regional integration was also highlighted in Dr Liverpool’s presentation. He told his audience that throughout the years there have been many calypsos written about the sport.

During his presentation he sang a verse or two of several well-known calypsos, giving the audience a taste of the art form and highlighting various points he’d made.

Chalkdust quipped, “You think Shakespeare could write that?” after singing a verse of a calypso song, which highlighted the creativity and use of language in the musical recording.

Some of the song samples he gave were Federation by Sparrow and the self-penned Sea, Water and Sand.

“Calypso records history and servers to remind us of our common background,’ he explained. “Calypso has helped to bring the Caribbean close together.”

After Dr Liverpool’s presentation, Artistic Director of the CNCF, Henry Muttoo thanked the Ministry, board and sponsors – Office of the Complaints Commissioner and Cable & Wireless – for their help in making the event a success.

General Discussion / Re: Panday as Leader

Kamla: I'll step down for Bas
Anna Ramdass aramdass@trinidadexpress.com

Friday, April 13th 2007

   

Siparia MP Kamla Persad-Bissessar has said she is ready to surrender her position as Opposition leader to interim United National Congress political leader Basdeo Panday.

Persad-Bissessar, in a telephone interview yesterday, said that if it is the consensus of the Opposition MPs in the House of Representatives to have Panday return to the position he held before, she is willing to step down.

Panday is expected to be screened today to contest the Couva North constituency seat.

"I have no difficulty with vacating the seat of Opposition Leader as that position came to me because of Mr Panday's legal impediment," she said.

Her willingness to give Panday the lead front seat on the Opposition benches comes even as Government is currently seeking a ruling of the High Court to determine whether or not Panday should officially re-enter the Parliament as the representative for Couva North following the collapse of a conviction.

Persad-Bissesar said that since Panday no longer has any conviction, he has the legal right to his Couva North and Opposition Leader seat.

"Right now if elections are called in the morning and Mr Panday wins his seat he will be able to sit in the Parliament," she said, adding that Government was "holding the Parliament to ransom" by seeking High Court intervention on the issue.

Persad-Bissessar made history in the country by becoming the first woman to be appointed as Opposition Leader on April 26, 2006.

The position was declared vacant by President George Maxwell Richards after Panday was convicted of failing to make an accurate declaration to the Integrity Commission regarding a London bank account.

Persad-Bissesar said that nominees for 12 constituency seats will be screened today, including her own seat in which she is unopposed.

She said the screening process is expected to be wrapped up by Sunday and then the candidates will have to be approved by the national executive of the party.
   




Kamla ready to hand over to Panday

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says she is more than willing to give up the post to her predecessor, Basdeo Panday, in the wake of his full reinstatement as United National Congress political leader.

Panday's full reinstatement occurred during the UNC's national congress meeting on Sunday, as the party he founded celebrated its 19th anniversary yesterday.

Speculation has already arisen that if Panday, the former Couva North MP, is again able to return to the Parliament as the Couva North MP and UNC political leader, he could also be returning as Opposition Leader.

"I have always maintained my appointment or election as Opposition Leader had arisen because a legal obstacle rose against Mr Panday, and once that legal obstacle is removed, I have no difficulty in him resuming the position that has wrongfully been taken from him,"[/b  Persad-Bissessar said in a telephone interview yesterday.

She said she was always willing to serve her constituents and her party in whatever office she is appointed to, whether it is within or outside of the Parliament.

She noted that Panday was fully reinstated as the UNC political leader by a unanimous vote at the national congress.

"He has in fact been the de facto leader of the party, this serves for him to be de jure leader," Persad-Bissessar said.

Panday, who is also the former Couva North MP, is seeking to be reinstated to that parliamentary seat, in light of the Appeal Court's decision to quash his conviction and sentence last year on charges of failing to declare a London bank account.

The Parliament has, however, petitioned the High Court for a ruling on whether Panday can now return as the Couva North MP.

For his part, Panday said yesterday that he was not concerned with which office he holds.

"I still have to work really hard to beat the PNM."


As for the UNC's 19th anniversary yesterday, Panday said, "It feels good to have sustained a party for so long. I think after the PNM, we are the oldest party in the country."

WARM WELCOME: Retired West Indies star batsman Brian Lara, right, acknowledges the warm reception he received after he was invited on stage by soca star Machel Montano HD for a special tribute during the Plymouth Jazz Festival in Tobago on Sunday night.



Machel brings Lara to tears

Plymouth Jazz Festival finale
by Michael Mondezie mmondezie@trinidadexpress.com

Tuesday, May 1st 2007

   
Soca star Machel Montano recovered from a nightmare week and found his Carnival form to close the Plymouth Jazz Festival in emphatic fashion on Sunday night at Plymouth, Tobago.

The Siparia-born star dedicated his performance to recently retired West Indies cricket captain Brian Lara and seemed as surprised as everyone when the world double record holder decided to join him on stage.

"Keep going, keep moving, don't you ever stop. The road is long and rocky but I know you're gonna' make it," he began, singing the lyrics to his 2005 Carnival hit "We Not Giving Up", bringing tears to the eyes of the batting star. Montano embraced the emotional Lara and sang a new song he had written especially for "the world's greatest".

"Anything they can do, you can do it better because you are the greatest,"

Montano sang to the former skipper who was at this time drying his eyes with his hands.

Lara took the microphone from Montano and turned to the packed Plymouth recreation park to offer his gratitude.

"Thank you so much for the love and support. The difference between me and Machel is every time he comes out here he scores a century. He doesn't know about failure," Lara joked.

It was a storybook finish to the biggest music festival to be hosted in Tobago.

Even the sceptics couldn't deny the perfection and timing of Lara's impromptu appearance.

Montano capitalised on Lara's appearance and romped home with a slew of his soca hits, even dropping a verse from his school boy hit "Too Young to Soca" during an impressive hour-long set.

He told journalists minutes before his performance that the events of the last week made it "difficult to focus" on preparing a set for the show.

Montano and his entourage were accused of being involved in a fracas outside Club Zen in Port of Spain last week.

One patron was seriously injured.

The Signal Hill Choir joined him on stage to create a colourful opening of his Carnival hit "Higher Than High" before Zan, Montano's "hype man" for the night, rushed out on stage to provide ad libs and background vocals.
