Artist Biography

At an early age, Clyde Heerah emigrated from the island of Trinidad and Tobago.  After school on weekends, Heerah and some of his classmates would get together and have a jam session. It was the beginning of playing music in Winnipeg. The Paradize Band of Winnipeg was formed. The band was playing at venues here and there when they heard that Folklorama was starting up a local performer agency.

Since 1996, the Paradize Band of Winnipeg has become an integral member of Folklorama, performing at Canada Day, receptions, and teaching in schools and daycares across the city. Clyde Heerah and his band are also the house band at the Africa-Caribbean Pavilion during Folklorama.
