Lord Relator is a famous calypsonian. Calypso singers have functions that have some similarities to West African griot and American blues singers. The calypso typically provides lyrical commentary about society, government, politics as well as more light hearted topics related to love, scandalous happenings, or comedy. Additionally, many engage in picong (verbal battles) using extempo (improvised lyrics).
Lord Relator performed calypsonian for us from several famous artists including Lord Kitchener and Mighty Sparrow along with his own songs.
