Combining life-writing with poetic prose, Anthony Joseph gets to the heart of the man behind the music and the myth, reaching behind the sobriquet to present a holistic portrait of the calypso icon Lord Kitchener.
This event is part of a series celebrating the culture of the Windrush Generation curated by Anthony Joseph for the EFG London Jazz Festival as part of Giant Steps, a scheme supported by Help Musicians UK. Full details on the series.

The poet and musician Anthony Joseph met and spoke to Lord Kitchener just once, in 1984, when he found the calypso icon standing alone for a moment in the heat of Port of Spain’s Queen's Park Savannah, one Carnival Monday afternoon. It was a pivotal meeting in which the great calypsonian outlined his musical vision, an event which forms a moving epilogue to Kitch, Joseph's unique biography of the Grandmaster.

Part of Black History Month Lambeth.
