What exactly makes Duane different? Plainly stated, some calypso artists demonstrate a depth of music that comes from their roots. Other calypso entertainers compose and perform music that comes from their soul. Others still create intense inspiration when engaging a crowd.
With calypso artiste Duane O'Connor, you can expect it all. In fact, the newly crowned National Calypso Monarch has always felt a special affinity to calypso, even as far back as being a young child. Today, leaving his audiences captivated by his melodic sounds, he combines calypso lyrics with mesmerizing rhythms that literally make the heart soar.
Using his education and musical abilities, he masterfully combines his education and musical talent to send a message of unity, responsibility and harmony to the world.
Today, Duane serves as a police officer, where he pilots a program tailored specifically for the youth in the arts at a location in the western part of the country. On February 24, 2012 he was presented with an award by the police service for his marvelous achievement.
Never in the history of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has a police officer ever captured the prestigious Calypso Monarch title, a title Duane proudly wears. http://www.caribbeannewsnow.com
