Caribbean Audio Odyssey is a reflection of Stag-O-Lee’s love for early Jamaican music. When one traces back the roots of ska to the early sound systems and Mento, it doesn’t take a genius to discover calypso. Here’s 10 little jewels from the ’50sâ~@”recorded in Jamaica, Trinidad, Tobago and Bermuda. Calypso in the Caribbean includes a range of genres, including: the Benna genre of Antiguan and Barbudan music; Mento, a style of Jamaican folk music that greatly influenced ska and reggae; ska, the precursor to rocksteady and reggae; Spouge, a style of Barbadian popular music; Cadence-lypso, which mixed calypso with the cadence rampa of Haiti and Dominican traditional music; and soca music, a style of Kaiso/calypso, with influences from Cadence-lypso, soul, funk and Indian musical instruments.
