  1. Ards, I have to agree with Franka, you really did miss out =). It was my first time at one of Etienne’s shows and I was Blown Away! Really a world class musical presentation and so rich with good Trini culture. Baby doll and the jab jabs were excellent as well. Congrats to you both on ‘TriniGoodMedia’!!

  2. Great job! Educational and looking forward to other episodes.

    Excellent interview, just confirm, it was only in audio?
    I like his commitment to research and renewal. We really need to know more about ourselves. Our ignorance of our history and Cultural and artistic heritage probably accounts for some of our aimlessness and fumbling along.
