Serendipity often steals upon you in strange ways. I was about to shut down my computer last Wednesday night when, in my e-mail inbox, I saw a post by Lasana Liburd alerting me to a video interview he had conducted with David Rudder. I respect Liburd for maintaining high standards on his Wired868 blog, and for me, Rudder is a peerless trailblazer who attempted to usher in a new era in calypso music in 1986.
Rather than postpone watching the 26-minutes video, I thought, why not now? I clicked on it, and for the next hour-and-a-half, I was transported into the magical realms of, not one, but two great Trini-Caribbean artistes, Rudder and Andre Tanker.
