Thread Name: Biography: Lord Invader- calypsonian- anyone knew?
Subject: RE: Lord Invader- calypsonian- anyone knew?
in one of Invader's War verses, he sings:
"Yes, my mother dead and my father disown me
What am I to do?
Yes, my mother dead and my father disown me
What am I to do?
Now I'm livin' in this word and I've got nobody,
No brother, no sister, no cousin family."
Did anyone here on this board who was involved in the American folk revival know Invader personally, and did he ever mention anything about his life in Trinidad, especially his childhood?
