Description
Trinidad is the home of calypso music, which gave birth to hit songs from the 1930s and 40s like "Ugly Woman" and "Rum & Coca Cola," and evolved into the beat of Soca in the 1970s. Nowhere else are these musical styles celebrated as spectacularly as during the island's pre-Lenten Carnival, and in this album Vern Evans captures the joy of the festival and the music in expressive photos up to 22 inches across. The four audio discs included here take us from early recordings by such iconic calypso artists as Roaring Lion, Lord Invader, and Lord Kitchener to songs from modern masters like Roy Cape, Sharlene, and Brother Resistance. This large-format album is an exploration in sight and sound, in which the page-filling photographs offer an evocative visual experience, while the superb recordings capture the atmosphere, energy, and spirit of the subject.
