One of the great calypso musicians admired for his originality and wry humour

In the flamboyant world of calypso, Mighty Shadow, who has died aged 77, stood out as an eccentric counterpoint to the colourful norm. On stage, typically clad in dark cape and wide-brimmed black hat, he would perform with a slight frown while either standing still or moving in jumpy, jerky movements as his deep, tremulous voice conveyed a vulnerability that was matched by songs of personal frailty and wild imaginings.


v. To dance in a joyful, carefree manner

“Tonight I gwan fete down de place, ah gwan dingolay”
