Calypso Cross Section

Juxtaposing the musical talents of vocalists Bomber, Wrangler, Killer and Small Island Pride, the art of the 1950s Trinidadian calypso resonates on this recording. These witty songs provide a lesson in picong, the game of teasing intrinsic to the genre, from these crowned Calypso Kings.
