If Sparrow Say So

{gallery}http://www.flickr.com/photos/theuwi/sets/72157641917962495/{/gallery} IF SPARROW SAY SO… was a series of five (5) lecture-performances in appreciation of Trinidadian calypsonian, the Mighty Sparrow, presented by Canboulay Productions in collaboration with The UWI.
For over five decades Sparrow has represented the region internationally as the undisputed ‘King of Calypso’. These 5 lecture performances allow us to explore not only his expansive repertoire of songs, but to plumb, beyond performance, the meanings the man has etched on our cultural landscape. Each lecture-performance of the series was based on a selected aspect of Sparrow’s work.

The final lecture-performance took place at Daaga Auditorium at The UWI St. Augustine Campus, delivered by The UWI’s Professor Patricia Mohammed, Lecturer in Gender and Cultural Studies, and Trinidad and Tobago calypsonian, Singing Sandra. Their presentation was titled “Who Taking Advantage of Who”.
