Listen to a little of the record below. 🎶
Calypso music and the production of island records became quite popular in the islands during the heyday of the 1950s.
The style of music originated in Trinidad and Tobago with African and European roots.
This highly rhythmic and harmonic sound drew upon these influences and became the voice of the people.
It is thought that the name “calypso” might be a corruption of the French carrouseaux, however the first mention of the word calypso was given in a description of a dance in 1882.

Songs included are:
