Product Details

Caribbean Audio Odyssey is a reflection of Stag-O-Lee's love for early Jamaican music. When one traces back the roots of ska to the early sound systems and Mento, it doesn't take a genius to discover calypso. Here's 10 little jewels from the '50s - recorded in Jamaica, Trinidad, Tobago and Bermuda. If you don't enjoy 'em, consult a doctor! "CALYPSO, the infectious rhythms and melodies of the Caribbean area originated in Trinidad. It is really the musical expression of the Afro-West-Indian population. There are various explanations for the origin of the word 'calypso,' but it is most likely that it stems from the African word 'Kaiso,' which means 'bravo.' the lyrics (in a dialectic English) and the melody are usually made up at the spur of the moment. The words very often have a double meaning. The topic is sex, but frequently deals with current events of social and political happenings. The rhythms are enticing and therefore popular for dancing." -from the liner notes; Calypso in the Caribbean includes a range of genres, including: The Benna genre of Antiguan and Barbudan music; Mento, a style of Jamaican folk music that greatly influenced ska and reggae; ska, the precursor to rocksteady and reggae; Spouge, a style of Barbadian popular music; Cadence-lypso, which mixed calypso with the cadence rampa of Haiti and Dominican traditional music; and soca music, a style of Kaiso/calypso, with influences from Cadence-lypso, soul, funk and Indian musical instruments.
