The Night: World Music

sun 6 nov 2016 00:00 

This evening is dedicated to calypso music.
The calypso mainly developed in Trinidad from the social conflict and censorship endured by the population. Superstition, life and death, money, status and the relationship between men and women are all paid attention to in the texts.
