Down The Road07 Aug 2013, by A SONG A DAY in
In 1937 the oil business was just beginning in Trinidad and Tobego. Calypso singer, The Tiger put out this song to talk about the Butler Riots which took place on June 19, 1937. The birth of Trinidad’s labor movement, named for Uriah Butler, a fierce defender of workers rights, charged with inciting a riot and sent to jail. This is our take on this heavy and powerful song “Down The Road”.
