Lord Laro – The Rastafarian Love
Early tune mentions Rastafari
Found this one recently, not in great condition, but plays okay and is interesting in that it features some nice Rasta style drumming and a strong Rastafarian theme throughout.
Here’s a link to the tune – Listen Here
Laro is a Trinidadian Calypsonian who recorded a number of tunes in Jamaica almost exclusively for the Khouri family at Federal. He is perhaps most well known to collectors for his Jamaican Referendum Calypso of 1961, this appears both on the Jamaican and Uk Kalypso labels. Laro still performs and is more widely associated with Trini Calypso, than Mento flavoured Jamaican Calypso.
