T&T mourns the death of The Mighty Composer

T&T is today mourning the death of Fred Mitchell known in the calypso world as the Mighty Composer.

Composer first entered the limelight in the 1960s as a member of Sparrow’s Young Brigade.

He became known for his thought provoking compositions, many of which reflected on the Black Power Movement.

Composer was a founding member of the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation and served for many years on its executive.

He will also be remembered as one of the upholders of Trinidad’s Red Indian mas tradition, as well as his efforts to lift discriminatory laws against Orisa practitioners.
