Am I the only person on here who likes calypso music, especially the old calypsonians? (Lord Invader, Lord Kitchener, Lord Melody, Lord Executor and the Mighty Sparrow are my favourites.)

The first four are dead and the fifth one is still alive- in his seventies.

Hey, gorgeous
Mixed feelings, I grew up with it (my mother was from T&T) but I had to listen to it through too many boring family gatherings.

Still dance to it at weddings and reunions, though.

Where from in T&T? Funny thing, I want to be a calypsonian! Sometimes I feel a bit guilty about it though, like I wonder if I'm the equivalent of a weeaboo for wanting to be a calypsonian, even though I don't hate Aussie or Malaysian or Chinese culture or want to be Trini. I really don't want to be a weeaboo equivalent.

Anyway, my dad plays Chinese music in the car sometimes, so I kind of know how you feel.

Arima, east of Port-of-Spain about in the middle of the island. There's a lot to like about it, as long as you have people there. Not the safest of places to be a tourist.

The heritage certainly has its upsides if you like steel drums and Caribbean food.

So, Morwen, we meet again...lol jk. tongue I like it sort of. As Sarkastique said, I'm used to it at family gatherings. I like it, but I couldn't tell you any artists I know, except for Sparrow.

@wuggles: Ah, that Sparrow. He's a legend. I'll never ever be that good. Interestingly, I did a cover of Jean and Dinah which I posted on the Tropers can do music too thread. Unfortunately, I don't have a personal band, so I had to do it acapella. Does anyone think I'm a weeaboo equivalent?

And here's Wilmoth Houdini- "Gin and Coconut Water.''

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
