A Caribbean Vision: Words of Edwin Carrington


During any journey it is important to mark signposts if only as a means of recording achievements or disappointments. In the march towards regional integration there have been many of both, but too often we tend to dwell on the latter while belittling the former. The signposts are well demarcated in the ensuing articles, which also contain provocative prescriptions.

Although the arguments may differ in intensity and focus, what is uniform is the commitment to and belief in the idea of collective Caribbean action. Indeed it is maintained that “integration is not the furtherance of a dream but represents the means of survival in the 21st century.”

A strong sense of West Indian identity influences the majority of contributions and more than one contributor suggests, that it is more this identity than political or economic actions which will carry us through the hazardous maze of globalisation. In one case, cultural identity and kinship are seen as the essential ingredient of the new direction which the region must take. While in another, the cementing of a truce between artist and politician, in order to forge unity and maintain identity, is viewed as a prerequisite to interfacing effectively with the rest of the world.

Pat Bishop contributed immense creative direction to The Lydians

In 1987  Pat Bishop has been musical director of The Lydians from then to the present time. She has not only led the choir, but has also fused the singers with her other love, the steelband. At first, the choir was accompanied by various steelbands, Witco Desperadoes, Amoco Renegades, but eventually, miss Bishop, along with Mr. Ben Jackson and Miss Loraine Granderson, nurtured the Lydian Steel, a group of very capable youngsters who are music literate and who are making waves and raves here and abroad. She has also introduced African and Tassa drummers, and dancers from folk and Ballet disciplines.
