Various - Caribbean Audio Odyssey Volume One - 10"


"..When one traces back the roots of SKA to the early sound systems and Mento it needs not 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.” (taken from the linernotes)
