After losing his right leg to diabetes, a stalwart of our music industry will be given a grand concert in appreciation of his contributions to the calypso tradition in Guyana.
At the helm of the planning is Calypso Judge, Mr. Cecil Semple, an ex-member of the Guyana Police Force who is also an avid reader and aficionado of the Trinidadian born music.
In brief remarks, Semple expressed that Malcom “Lord Canary” Corrica, has made invaluable contributions towards the development of the art form and he should not be honoured “posthumously.”
“He is battling with a serious ailment and he is in my eyes, an important person to the calypso music industry. He needs our love and support at this trying time. It is not easy to be fighting such an ailment at age 76. I have contacted several calypsonians and other musicans who are happy to be a part of the benefit concert. Planning is still taking place but I must insist that our musical icon deserves this.”
