Calypso music was developed in Trinidad in the 17th century from the West African Kaiso and canboulay music brought by African slaves imported to that Caribbean island to work on sugar plantations. The slaves, brought to toil on sugar plantations, were stripped of all connections to their homeland and family and not allowed to talk to each other. They used calypso to mock the slave masters and to communicate with each other. This album had a special participation of the Amocco Renegades (a traditional steel-drum band from Trinidad and Tobago). In the first track is possible to notice a strong style influence. Calypso had another short burst of commercial interest when Tim Burton's horror/comedy film Beetlejuice (1988) was released, and used Belafonte's "Jump In The Line" as the soundtrack's headliner and also "The Banana Boat Song" in the dinner-party scene.

The music of Trinidad and Tobago is best known for its calypso music, soca music and steelpan. Calypso's internationally noted performances in the 1950s from native artists such as Lord Melody, Lord Kitchener and Mighty Sparrow. The art form was most popularised at that time by Harry Belafonte

Calypso music in trinidad and tobago. ORIGIN OF THE TERM 'CALYPSO' The term 'calypso' arose after the art form had been in existence for sometime. Initially the majority of songs were sung in patois. At that time, bamboo structures and tents were used as the venue for Calypsonians to practice and perform during the Carnival season. Today, calypso tents are housed in more permanent structures and showcase the new music of the Carnival season. By the next decade, the giants of calypso had begun their reign. RAPSO is a unique style of street poetry from Trinidad and Tobago which draws on the musical experience of the Shango/the Kaiso (Calypso) and robber-talk (a Carnival Theatre), The Steelband. Some have described it as Soka-Poetry or Poetry-in-Soka, but the Rapso Poet has resisted all such labels.

October 2018 is Calypso History Month, a tradition started by the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation (TUCO) in 2002 as a way to celebrate the role calypso has played in the social and political development of Trinidad and Tobago. To mark the occasion, the Global Voices Caribbean team will be highlighting some of the outstanding contributions to the calypso pantheon from over the years. First up? Calypsoes whose lyrics empower women. In a genre that has often painted women in a negative light, either likening them to she-devils or playthings, such calypsoes were once rare

The Calypso in Trinidad and Tobago, is mainly of African origin, and can be traced to the traditions of West Africans in terms of music, structure and function. Calypso, which has been called a poor man’s newspaper in times when literacy was not wide spread, traces its roots to African traditions of improvised songs of self-praise and scorn for others, brought here by enslaved peoples. In 1978 saw the Calypso Monarch competition being won by a woman for the first time. Calypso Rose signalled the entry of many more women on the Calypso stage.
