Howard Assembly Room

46 New Briggate, Leeds, LS1 6NU

A concert of calypsos celebrating the pioneer of Caribbean music in 1950s Britain: Edric Connor. Connor collected, catalogued and recorded Trinidadian music, as well as being an acclaimed singer, broadcaster and actor in his own right.

The evening features calypsos and Trinidadian folk music from his songbooks, performed by Nigel Wong and Simone Sauphanor, who both played with Edric.

In the second half, the electrified beats of Trinidad's most popular contemporary musical form, Soca 'the soul of calypso', bring us bang up to date and are performed by Sheldon Blackman and members of the legendary Breakfast Band.

Produced by the Geraldine Connor Foundation.
