Amilcar Sanatan is a son of three boys to his beautiful mother, he adds pepper to his food as if his life depended on it and he is a proud descendent of Africans who helped emancipate and abolish slavery.
Blending his spoken word poetry, music and colourful designs, he continues to be an underpaid, undervalued, artist in his homeland.
His dream in life is to be a whole-wheat doubles vendor and he hopes to retire as an umpire for International Test Cricket. Sanatan looks forward to meeting people who were born in the year 2000 because it is easier to work out their age. He also enjoys being a morning person on December 25th and for Jouvert. And lives by his watchwords “ Take life a bit easy. Sometimes we take the “L” and the “R” on our headphones too seriously”.
Amilcar is also a Graduate Student at the Institute of Gender and Development Studies, UWI, St. Augustine. His research interests and advocacy are on Political Economy, Gender, Men and Masculinities, Sociology of Carnival and Consumer Affairs.
