WHOEVER thinks calypso is a dying art form need only look in the direction of emerging stars like Sharissa Camejo. The 18-year-old took home her second National Junior Calypso Monarch title on Monday following a convincing performance of her nation-building song “Everything We Can”. She won her first Junior Calypso Monarch title at the age of 14.

Terri Lyons roared twice on Thursday.

The combative entertainer first bared tooth and nail to dominate the competition with her potent offerings “Obeah” and “Meghan My Dear” at the National Calypso Monarch final, at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

For many years, it has been hailed as Fantastic Friday, but that is now quite debatable since some people consider the International Soca Monarch (ISM) of today to be a lacklustre version of what the competition used to be.
