One of the most fabled of the Trinidadian steelpan exponents transitioning to the New York scene decades ago, Caldera Caraballo, whose exploits included a stint in Harry Belafonte’s touring troupe, will be the focus of attention at the next collaboration of the Trinidad & Tobago Folk Arts Institute and Medgar Evers College’s School of Professional & Community Development on Friday, May 2. The forum reviewing the often trail-blazing career of Caldera Caraballo will take place in the Mary Pinkett Lecture Hall on the Medgar Evers College campus, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
In its researching, documenting and advocacy of proper preservation of indigenous Trinidadian folk culture, the Folk Arts Institute has been collaborating for a number of years with Medgar Evers College, where many forums have been presented.
Admission to the upcoming forum, centering on Caraballo’s intriguing and multi-faceted journey in the steel band world, is free and open to the general public. Mary Pinkett Lecture Hall is in the S Building on the Medgar Evers campus, Rm S122 at 1637 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn (between Carroll & Crown Streets).
