Singing Sandra releases ‘Cleansing Fire’ on the Nation of Trinidad and Tobago
We are always proud of the works of our Ambassador 5 alumni. And one of our most memorable, Singing Sandra, continues to blaze the trail in the calypso arena with her latest release ‘Cleansing Fire.’ A timely release in the midst of all the challenges facing the islands of Trinidad and Tobago especially in the arena of crime and violence.
Singing Sandra is well known for being one of very few females who has won Trinidad and Tobago’s Calypso Monarch title in 1999 with her songs entitled ‘Song for Healing‘ and ‘Voices from the Ghetto.’ She is also known as the founding member of the all female calypso group ‘United Sisters‘ that included members Lady B, Tigress, and Marvellous Marva.
Singing Sandra was born in the East Dry River region of Trinidad and Tobago and raised in the community of Morvant. She developed her performing muscles in performances for ‘Best Village’ productions-a well known community oriented performing arts group. Her introduction to the calypso arena came from celebrated artiste at the time, Dr. Zhivago, who asked her to perform two of his songs. She was then recruited by the calypso king , Mighty Sparrow, for the youth Brigade tent. Find out more about Singing Sandra in our Ambassador 5 interview –Click Here.
