Simply Calypso (Download)
Caribbean Carnival Spirit

Cat. No.: DDSIMPLY123
Barcode: 0698458292384
Playing Time: Over 4 hours

Join the carnival and let the infectious sound of Trinidad and Tobago infuse you with Caribbean spirit. Joyous, energetic, political, full of social purpose and often profoundly daft, this selection of calypso from the 40s 50s and 60s tells witty tales of stolen nighties, zombies, West Indies test match victories over England, clever monkeys and delivering cod fish to Hitler. It also provides examples of calypso?s conquering of the worldwide mainstream when artists like Harry Belafonte made it his signature sound, and The Banana Boat Song became history?s most recognisable calypso.
