Aldwyn Roberts, the man who would become known by his regal pseudonym, Lord Kitchener, was born April 18, 1922 in the small town of Arima on the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. His vocal talent and clever word play would earn him scores of original hits at home and beyond. Along with Mighty Sparrow, he dominated the mature calypso scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s. His popularity continued through the transition to a more modern soca sound in the ‘80s. Adored and respected by his fans he continued to perform and record until his death in 2000.
