about

In 1971 two songs were released in Trinidad & Tobago that represented completely new directions in the musical and lyrical expression of Trinidad’s place in the diaspora, Indian on one hand and African on the other. Nanny & Nana by Sundar Popo and Blow ‘Way by Lancelot Layne were revolutionary and ground breaking and spawned two distinctly new genres in Trinidad & Tobago music — Chutney music in the case of Sundar Popo and Rapso, in Lance’s case. Brother Resistance calls Lancelot Layne the father of Rapso music.
