Calypso, with its diverse cultural heritage, was the most significant Caribbean musical form from World War I to Trinidad and Tobago Independence in 1962. Though wildly popular in mid-1950s America, Calypso--along with other music from qthe island of the hummingbirdq--has been largely neglected or forgotten. This first-ever discography of the first 50 years of Trinidadian music includes all the major artists, as well as many obscure performers. Chronological entries for 78 rpm recordings give bibliographical references, periodicals, websites and the recording locations. Rare field recordings are cataloged for the first time, including East Indian and Muslim community performances and Shango and Voodoo rites. Appendices give 10-inch LP (78 rpm), 12-inch LP (33 1/3 rpm), extended play (ep) and 7-inch single (45) listings. Non-commercial field recordings, radio broadcasts and initially unissued sessions also are listed. The influence of Trinidadian music on film, and the qCalypso crazeq are discussed. Audio sources are provided. Indexes list individual artists and groups, recording titles and labels.Concertina-3 (b) Md 1381 Dorothy Went to Bathe-3 (b) Md 1381 Highway Code-1 (a) Md 1323 Lion Resembles Bing (Rafael de Leon) (b) Calypsotime CR 510 Nigerian Girl-3 (b) Md 1361 Out of the Fire-1 (b) Md 1323 She Walks Like You andanbsp;...
