Product Description & Reviews

Take a trip to Trinidad - the last island of the Caribbean archipelago - and enjoy the most exciting Carnival of the Caribbean with this marvellous compilation. From the great laid-back beat of the traditional song form calypso to its modern, upbeat relative soca, this Rough Guide brings Carnival to life with a great selection of classic tracks. It also introduces rapso, the thumping sound of today's youth vibe. Artists include: Sharlene Boodram, David Rudder, Lord Pretender, The Mighty Sparrow, Kitchener, 3 Canal, Shadow, Andre Tanker and Singing Sandra "Calling all the yuppies and soldiers," chants soca star David Rudder in "Caribbean Party." "All the dispossessed and the gangsters too." Part Bob Marley and part Village People, Rudder perfectly captures the real-life bacchanal spirit of Trinidad's Carnival, where most calypso and soca hits are initially spun. This nonstop festival of a collection mixes up such venerable calypso stars as Lord Pretender and the Mighty Sparrow with soca upstarts like Rudder, Chris "Tambu" Herbert, and Shadow. For several years there has been a certain tension between advocates of hard-core "wine and jam" partiers like Ajala (who sings, "I wanna bend down and lick it/I wanna flex and kick it") and more socially conscious performers like "rapso" star Brother Resistance and Singing Sandra ("Voices from the Ghetto"). But this party--with its scrappy metal percussionists, bass maniacs, and overall Carnival fanaticism--is big enough to satisfy all factions. --Richard Gehr
