Event Details

The Mighty Sparrow is the unrivaled Calypso King of the World, with a career that spans over 40 years and counting. This artist par excellence has earned his rightful place as King of the Calypso World by defeating every other competitor and pretender that would vie for his throne. He has entertained audiences across the globe, including shows in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America, to name but a few. The Mighty Sparrow has proved himself as the quintessential Calypsonian, with over 70 albums to his credit. Richly endowed with many gifts, he possesses an amazing ability not only to put into music the exploits of society, but to crown his performances with showmanship and appeal. His great contribution to the artform and our lives has unraveled the mysteries of Caribbean life, leaving the professionally trained sociologist and economist befuddled. A combination of talent, hard work, and opportunity has enabled Sparrow's ascendance to the title of Calypso King of the World. He has brought honor, glory, and dignity to an indigenous art form that was once scorned by the elite of Caribbean society. He is one extraordinary entertainer who utilizes the medium he has mastered not just to entertain, but also to edify, enlighten, and educate. Without a doubt, as The Mighty Sparrow, this king of kings is the real supreme serenader.
