Stag-O-Lee present the second volume of their Caribbean Audio Odyssey 10" series. 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. From the liner notes: "CALYPSO, the infectious rhythms and melodies of the Caribbean area originated in Trinidad. It is really the musical expression of the Afro- West-Indian population. There are various explanations for the origin of the word 'Calypso', but it is most likely that it stems from the African word 'Kaiso', which means BRAVO. The lyrics (in a dialectic English) and the melody are usually made up at the spur of the moment. The words very often have a double meaning. The topic is sex, but frequently deals with current events of social and political happenings. The rhythms are enticing and therefore popular for dancing." Features: Ruben McCoy & The Hamiltonians, Lord Kitchener, Anatol's Cubans, Charlie Binger & His Quartet, Orchestre Combo Zombie, Noro Morales Y Su Orchestra, Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, Duke Of Iron, The Charmer, and Cyril Diaz & His Orchestra.
