The roots of calypso music
The roots of calypso music run back to the West African Kaiso and canboulay music of the Africans brought as slaves to work sugar plantations in the 17th century. Over these rhythms, they would sing in French Creole, mocking their “masters” and communicating with each other and calypso has been pushing the boundaries of free speech with lyrics about island life ever since.
