Miguel Maestre

Miguel Maestre may not have been born in Trinidad and Tobago but he is Trini to de bone. The Toronto, Canada-born performer, the son of Trinidadian musician Antonio “Spanish” Maestre, who is himself a lifelong parandero, is in love with the music of these twin islands. For the past decade, he has carried on his father’s parang legacy in the land of his birth and now has ambitions of touring the world with his soca band.

“Sometimes when I talk, they say I fresh-water, but I feel like a Trini to the bone,” Maestre told Kitcharee in a perfect Trinidadian accent, during a recent parang music showcase at the Fiesta Plaza in MovieTowne.

I have patients who have varied degrees of this condition. For my final clinical exam at university, I remember quite clearly praying I got a patient who had rheumatoid arthritis. It was such an interesting area to speak about; the way the condition can present, progress, be managed, and possibly impact mobility and quality of life.
