A Tribute to the Mighty Sparrow
The Mighty Sparrow or Birdie , real name Slinger Francisco was born in Grenada in 1935 and moved to Trinidad at the age of 1.  He became interested in calypso at the age of 14 and was nicknamed the Mighty Sparrow because he would move around the stage like a sparrow while he sang.
In 1956 Sparrow won Calypso Monarch and Carnival Road March with Jean and Dinah followed in 1960 with Mae Mae and Royal Jail in 1961.  Congo Man, which was criticized for its attitude towards women and Africans and was banned on radio until 1989, followed in 1965.  Big Bamboo with its frank tales of sexuality came in 1966.  He sang Jane in 1968 and in 1974 won Calypso Monarch with Miss Mary as one of his songs.
