Book Review: The Life and Works of Bill (Bhagee) Rogers and the Origin of Shanto Music in Guyana + Videos

The cover of the Bill Rogers autobiography The cover of the Bill Rogers autobiography

Bill Rogers is still a household name here so many decades after he was active in show business, musical recordings and popular entertainment in Guyana, the Caribbean, the USA and the UK. This speaks very eloquently to the impact and immortality of his songs, which are still played on the public airwaves. They are still remembered and even mouthed by many, some of whom were not even born yet when Rogers was performing. He remains a legend in Guyanese culture.

Dave Martins’ “Not A Blade of Grass” is the Guyanese nation’s unofficial second national anthem. If we assert that Rogers’ “West Indian Weed Woman” or “The Weed Song” is not far behind in that category, it confirms that either of these songs is not only the work of a genius, but has earned its place in history and possesses the quality that make it stand out memorably above other popular songs that are characteristically ephemeral. ( See Music videos below)         Continue reading →\

Though we have said it before, and numerous times, we will say it again: Exxon’s profitability and its top tier viability depend on its investments in Guyana’s oil sector, with its many oil-rich oil blocks still remaining to be explored and discovered.

    Martin Belam | The Guardian UK                                        

The Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize for the way its call for systemic change has spread around the world. In his nomination papers, the Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies.

“I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality,” Eide said. “Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice.   Continue reading →

The Richman Hill area of Queens, New York City, is populated with tens of thousands of Guyanese immigrants of Indian heritage, and is known as “Little Guyana.”

It grew out of Guyanese of Indian heritage who migrated and settled in that area of Queens, New York over the past half century. Residents include Doctors, Lawyers, Business People and other professionals. As one travels along the popular Liberty Avenue, one observes many billboards with the word “GUYANA” on them.
