Latin Roots: The King of Calypso, The Mighty Sparrow

Our Latin Roots segment today with Ernesto Lechner of the syndicated radio show The Latin Alternative. He joins us to talk about The Mighty Sparrow, a musical giant who has been a defining force in Calypso and Soca music for more than five decades. Ernesto brings his personal passion to this musician he loves, discussing Sparrow’s music that was at first both familiar and exotic to him. He will play some examples from early and later in the Calypso king’s career. Plus there is a Spotify playlist for further exploration.

The Free at Noon featuring Ingrid Michaelson is Sold Out but you can still listen live to the live midday concert on Friday.



Friday night, Indie singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson's tour makes a stop at Philly's Electric Factory. But before that, she'll play WXPN's Free at Noon concert series earlier in the day. As she tours for her sixth album, Lights Out, she has received praise from outlets such as Allmusic and The Oakland Press for her ambitious and polished new record which features its share of blues, pop, and drawn out ballads. The New York based Michaelson rose to fame by having her music put in various TV shows such as One Tree Hill, Scrubs, and The Vampire Diaries, as well as commercials for Old Navy and the British car manufacturer Vauxhall. You can purchase tickets for her Electric Factory show, but don't miss your chance to see her for free at World Cafe Live this Friday as part of WXPN's Free at Noon concert series.
