Playlist 003: The Calypsonians

Playlist 003: The Calypsonians is an ode to Calypso -- the music of Trinidad and Tobago that evolved over generations, with roots in Africa. Many know Calypso for its fun, light-hearted spirit, but it is so much more. Hidden beneath the catchy phrases and bouncing grooves is some of the most thought-provoking commentary on social and political issues. Look out for coded language and innuendos and dive in to this little time capsule of Caribbean culture.

Enjoy!
