Maximilian Forte, writing at Review of the Indigenous Caribbean Center, posts a video of Trinidadian calypsonian King Austin's song Progress, which he calls “a critique of the ideology and practice of progress, from the vantage points of environmental unsustainability, exploitation, inequality, and the resultant social strife.”
Thanks very much for the link Janine. It’s ages since our blog managed to get your attention :) I hope people enjoy the music, it really is a wonderful piece of poetry.
I’m sure they will! Thanks for your interesting analysis of the song.
