Drew Gonsalves grew up in Port of Spain, Trinidad surrounded by calypso.
The greatest calypso performer Lord Kitchener lived down the street. “Calypso was everywhere,” Gonsalves said in a recent telephone interview. And while Gonsalves didn’t turn a deaf ear to the music, he like many of his peers found themselves drawn to rock and heavy metal. “I really didn’t appreciate it,” Gonsalves.
Still calypso had planted its seed.
When he was 13, he mother brought him and his siblings back to her native Canada.
Then he heard the music in a new, strange and cold environment, and the warmth of nostalgia led to him to consider his homeland’s signature song with a new ear.
