DAY 1 - Legends Friday Main Artist

David Rudder

Trinidad & Tobago

David Rudder began singing with a calypso band at a young age, and in his teens sang backup vocals in a calypso tent run by Lord Kitchener.
In 1977, he joined Charlie's Roots and spent many years as one of the band's vocalists. In 1986, he came to prominence on Andy Narell's album The Hammer, which produced two big hits: "The Hammer" (a tribute to the late pannist Rudolph Charles) and "Bahia Girl". This was followed in 1987 with "Calypso Music", a brilliant encapsulation of the history of calypso.

In 1988 Rudder released what is widely considered his best album to date, Haiti, a tribute to the glory and suffering of Haiti. "Engine Room", which captured the energy of the steel band; and "Rally 'Round the West Indies", which became the anthem of West Indies cricket. In 2008, Rudder did a Soca collaboration with fellow Trinidadian Machel Montano, "Oil and Music".

His music is loved all over the world.
