His is a story of perseverance and an indomitable will to succeed.

 

Sent to live at the Belmont Orphanage when he was 12 years old Roy Cape never lost interest in his first love, music.

In fact that love grew; it consumed him.

An accomplished saxophonist, arranger, composer and recording artiste, he is also the recipient of a Humming Bird (Gold) national award.

In 2011, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from UWI.

In this special report Pappy as he is known to those closest to him tells of his adventures as a band leader and musician and shares his thoughts on the growth of the music industry here in Trinidad and Tobago.

Dionne Baptiste has more.
