Product Description

At the end of the heady decade of the tumultuous 1970’s, with the echoes of the Black Power
revolution of Trinidad still strongly reverberating, Valentino penned his two most commercially
successful calypsoes, 1979’s ‘Stay up Zimbabwe’ and 1980’s ‘Ah Wo [Brand New Revolution] both
reflections of the revolutionary spirit which had engulfed the Caribbean in the 1970’s. 1979 marked
the historic date of the Maurice Bishop led Grenadian Revolution and as if to herald this auspicious
event Valentino would make it all the way to the coveted national calypso monarch finals with this
anti-apartheid anthem.
