World Muse

sun 22 feb 2009 15:00 
Composer: B. Leza

Island musicians.

Calypso Rose (McArtha Lewis, 1940 Tobago) has been a seasoned musician for years. Nowadays, she lives in New York. In 1978 she receives the title of Calypso King. Next to calypso, she has also been found making gospel, reggae and soul.

The young Cesaria Evora. As 20-year-old girl she made recordings for radio Barlavento in Mindelo from the island Sao Vincento in the sixties. The recordings were made using just one microphone. There was no such thing as mixing: close to the microphone was loud and a bit further away was more quiet. Recorded dead and alive, yes; but wonderful to listen to.

Kilema, singer from the South-east of Madagascar. He is a true virtuoso on the kabosy and the marovany – a zither from Madagascar – and is a splendid composer!
