Kudos to the UK Guardian. They are one of the few of the international news media that consistently reports on our culture and our stars, and should be recognized. They have also published obituaries for stars such as Nearlin “Lynn” Taitt , and the Mighty Shadow on their passing. Here is a link to their fine article and interviewwith the Calypso King of the world , The Mighty Sparrow. Good job !
