Inspired improvisation and compelling rhythms, created by piano, small orchestra, and sometimes a drum and hand clapping, characterize these performances, which Lord invader (Rupert Westmore Grant, 1914-1962) recorded for Moses Asch in the 1940s and 1950s. Whether recounting events in Trinidad, describing his experiences in new York city, performing traditional songs, or criticizing American racism, Lord Invader combines rhythms and ideas in his unique calypsonian fashion. Thirteen of the twenty
Calypso: Vintage Songs From the Caribbean
4.3 out of 5 stars with 51 reviews
CD > POPULAR MUSIC > LATIN This admirable compilation concentrates on recordings from the '50s, when the toothsome melodies, infectious rhythms, and bawdy double-entendres of calypso and related West Indian styles were on the verge of becoming an international craze. Fun fact: at the height of his popularity, Harry Belafonte was outselling Elvis Presley! However, the tunes on this set are far more authentic than ''Day-O.'' Most of the material comes from the Bahamas, but there are also flying vi

Roosevelt in Trinidad
mpn: unknown, ean: 0018964114220,
4.6 out of 5 stars with 27 reviews
Sealed This delightful CD is a remarkable time capsule of Trinidadian society of the 1930s, preserving opinions, emotional responses, and attitudes of the people along with the historical record of the events of the day. The Calypsonians use witty wordplay to comment on local and international politics, sports, movies, music, and matters of the heart. Endearing music accompanies the topical lyrics. Clarinet and violin often play lead, joined by horns and piano, and the rhythm sections propel the

A singer who got his start in Rochereau's African Fiesta 66, switched sides to join Franco's TPOK Jazz, and went on to lead the African All Stars, Sam Mangwana is one of the greats of modern Congolese music. He is an innovator, too, experimenting with styles from other parts of Africa and from the Americas, but with this 1994 album he returns to his first love, Congo rumba. In addition to Mangwana originals, the tracks include classics by Empompo Loway, Tino Baroza and Dechaud Mwamba. The guitar

Francofaune is an uplifting collection of music as rootsy in its reggae influence as it is fused with the inherited melodies of the West Indies. Riddled with Mazurkas, Biguines, and Waltzs this is a record high with colors and melody driven by the exploration of unity and the captive state of enchantment.

Formed in 1967 just outside of Port-au-Prince, Tabou Combo has proven to be the most successful band to ever come out of Haiti. They've toured Europe, Mexico, Africa, the Caribbean and the United States (including a central Park concert boasting over 20,000 attendees). It has been said by many that Tabou Combo is Haitian music. This 1973 album is true to their roots as a Compas (Haitian party music) band. Rather than play American pop music with flavors of Haitian music, they focused their sound
