Calypso - Vintage Songs From the Caribbean - 2002

Calypso (2002) is a Putumayo collection that includes Calypso classics and popular songs from the golden era of Caribbean music.
In the 1950s, calypso and other Caribbean folk styles had international repercussions, after the release of "Calypso" by Harry Belafonte in 1956, one of the best-selling records in history. From then on, artists from Barbados, Trinidad, the Bahamas, Jamaica and other Caribbean islands became interested in this new audience. Thus, the rhythms, catchy melodies and double meaning lyrics of Caribbean music reached millions of North American homes.

This album brings us a selection of classics from the legendary ART Records, as well as other gems from various periods of Caribbean musical history. Calypso goes back half a century, to a romantic era that seemed to have been lost in time.
