Alexander combines Caribbean story, calypso music and rhythms in his work. After a 30 - year career playing a variety of music including Soul, Rhythm and Blues, Rock and Reggae Alex returned to his calypso roots in the late 1980s creating his own fusion, Socablues. In 1998 Alex wrote the first full - length calypso opera, "Rumshop" staged at the Lyric Theatre, West London.
