St. George’s Grenada- Fourteen finalists have been chosen to compete against the reigning independence Calypso Monarch, ‘Rootsman Kelly’ Kelly Clyne in what is expected to be one of the keenest battles for the coveted title of Independence Calypso Monarch 2018.

The event which is a part of the 44th Anniversary of Independence celebrations will be held in the Sauteurs Bus terminus in St. Patrick on Saturday 27, January 2018, from 8:00pm. This year’s competition attracted submissions from twenty-one artistes across the state.

As the excitement builds up in the nation and abroad for the 44th Anniversary, the National Celebrations Committee is planning for a memorable celebration that would be more participatory and engaging in nature. The Calypso competition is expected to have full support from the nation and promises to be filled with patriotism.

The competition is spearheaded by Mr. Adrian Mark from the Ministry of Culture who has been working on the event over the past few months and is very heartened by the response from the artistes. The lyrical content is expected to be of a high standard and a reflection of our achievements over the last forty-four years.

The slate of artistes offers a combination of experience and new comers that are expected to bring a high standard to the competition. The following is the list of artistes in random:
