Caribbean Apparel

Aldwyn Roberts (18 April 1922 - 11 February 2000), better known by the stage name Lord Kitchener (or "Kitch"), was an internationally known calypsonian.  Born in Arima, Trinidad.  Prominent in the UK in the 1950s he became an important figure to those first 5,000 West Indian migrants to the UK.  His music spoke of home and a life that they all longed for but in many cases couldn't or wouldn't return to.  An important song he wrote was "Victory Calypso" to celebrate West Indies cricket team's first victory over England in England in June 1950.  In the 1960s he returned to Trinidad where he and Mighty Sparrow dominated the calypso competitions of the 60s and 70s.  He ran his own calypso tent, Calypso Revue.
