The Harris Files:  The passing of a Cultural and Musical giant in Trinidad & Tobago

November 01,, 2018

Winston Bailey ( The Shadow) who died in Trinidad at the age of 77 a couple of weeks ago was one of the most outstanding practitioners of the calypso artform in the last fifty years. The Shadow broke the stranglehold of Aldwyn Roberts (Lord Kitchener) and Slinger Franciso (Mighty Sparrow) on the Road March competition when he captured the title in 1974 with "Bassman" and placed second with " I Come Out to Play", both songs were earlier examples of soca a more uptempo electrified version of calypso that has rule the roost in the West Indies ever since.

Shadow was not an ordinary calypsonian, he begun his career as part of the chorus in the Mighty Sparrow's "Young Brigade Tent' in 1970, by the following year he had started to make a name for himself as a calypsonian in his own right.

After he broke the stranglehold of Lord Kitch­en­er and Mighty Spar­row on the Road March competition, Shadow had to wait 26 more years be­fore win­ning a sig­nif­i­cant Car­ni­val ti­tle, the Ca­lyp­so Monarch in 2000 singing the apt­ly named ‘What’s Wrong With Me?’ and ‘Scratch Meh Back.’ He would then be­come the old­est Road March and So­ca Monarch win­ner a year in 2001 with ‘Stranger’.

According to former president of Trinidad and Tobago An­tho­ny Car­mona, Shadow's music was not of ap­pre­ci­a­ted in his own country.

“Why can­not we be hon­est about our­selves, why can’t we say Shad­ow you were wronged by the judges, wronged by those who nev­er ap­pre­ci­at­ed the artiste in you or the in­spi­ra­tional con­tent in your mu­sic? Wronged by those who gave you a Hum­ming­bird Sil­ver when you are wor­thy of an ORTT,” said Car­mona.

Whether the former president is right or wrong about Shadow's music not appreciated in his own country. His songs guaranteed lifelong affection throughout the Caribbean for its creator, even though he has departed this world, Shadow's music will live forever.

Manager of Courtesy Rent-A-Car in Barbados, West Indies

www.courtesyrentacar.com 

“Put yourself in the position of the client…how would you feel?”


These have been the words that guide the life and work of Ian Proverbs, manager of Courtesy Rent-A-Car in Barbados. After completing his studies, Ian immediately entered the fast-paced world of airline work at the Seawell International Airport, now known as the Grantley Adams International Airport.


He first worked with a small charter airline company before moving to Barbados’ leading airline handling company, Seawell Air Services. A good foundation is always necessary in any journey. His time in the airline industry was hectic, fulfilling, and most of the time, enjoyable.


Ian started as a passenger agent responsible for check-in and flight arrivals for different airlines such as British Airways, Pan Am, and Ward Air. He transferred to the operations department as a load controller responsible for the weight and balance of the aircraft.


While at the airport, he learned that timekeeping is extremely important because no one wants to be late. He also learned to always place one’s self in the shoes of the client in front of you and think of how the client would react to a situation. Just imagine traveling for eight hours on a plane and arriving at your paradise location without your baggage.

Ian Proverbs

He moved on to a management position within the retail sector after almost 10 years in the airline field. It was quite a change for him and it was not nearly as fulfilling as being in the airline industry. After a brief four years, he returned to the tourism field, this time, within the auto rental field, which would become the place where he would find the most satisfaction.


Ian joined Courtesy Rent-A-Car in 1991. He found a business that is never the same every day, a job that is challenging and enjoyable, and a team focused on the customers.


From 1991 up to the present, with a brief break from 1995 to 1999, he has led a team of remarkable people who go out of their way to meet and exceed the expectations of their clients. Customer satisfaction is his focus and it has established a significant repeat customer base.
