Poet, academic, musician and author Anthony Joseph combines non-fiction and poetic prose to tell the life story of the iconic calypsonian singer, Lord Kitchener.
Aldwyn Roberts (18 April 1922 – 11 February 2000), better known by his stage name Lord Kitchner or Kitch, was born in Arima in Trinidad and Tobago. It was there he made his name as a calypsonian musician before he came over to England on the Empire Windrush in 1948. His music spoke to not only the West Indian communities that had settled in the UK, but Lord Kitchner’s Calypsonian style gained international acclaim.
This book incorporates a mixture of sources, from interviews, newspaper articles and poetic prose to create the unique tapestry of Lord Kitchners incredible life.
