About Eddy Grant

Eddy Grant stands among an elite group of artists as one who has not just merely moved successfully across the musical spectrum, but has actually been at the forefront of genres and even created one of his own. From pop star to reggae radical, musical entrepreneur to the inventor of ringbang, the artist has cut a swath through the world of music and made it his own.

Born in Plaisance, Guyana, on March 5, 1948, the young Edmond Grant grew up on the sound of his homeland, tan singing, an Indo-Caribbean vocal style whose roots lay in South Asia and are the backbone of modern chutney. Then in 1960, the Grant family emigrated to England, taking up residence in the working-class Stoke Newington area of London. The young teen’s musical horizons swiftly expanded, embracing the R&B, blues, and rock that percolated across his new island home.    [read more About Eddy Grant ]

There has to be another way- Roman Catholic Bishop

Ten children in a mini-bus commuting from Georgetown to home in Diamond are delayed in traffic for hours and witness fire, and confrontation between police and civilians; they hear verbal threats and harsh language.  They are scared, tired, hungry and in tears.  There has to be another way.

Frightening new images and haunting memories link the past with the present.  No one, no community, and certainly not the nation benefit from the assaults and injuries inflicted by waiting criminal opportunists and stealth operators.  All the noble aims and intentions are smothered and lost in the graphics of fires and masks and detritus.  Nobody benefits.  Continue reading
