Back Tracks: Three Music Questions with Lyndon Ramrattan
Originally from Trinidad, Lyndon Ramrattan found his way to Duluth and now works in the Chocolate Lab at the University of Minnesota Duluth. His ties to the islands are still strong, both through professional work and through music.
Growing up, music was always happening all around the island and didn't need to be purchased, so his first album was quite recent. His first concert was calypso music from "up the islands", and his guilty pleasure song may have caused some trouble in the schoolyard. "You move your hips in a certain way... that's not ok for kids."
