Adam Trujillo This is just something different and interesting to listen to once in a while. The stories in some of these songs (spousal abuse, poverty) are pretty hardcore, though. Favorite track: Louise Bennett - Dry weather houses.

Tom Stakhanov Souvenirs
1963, Nassau, Bahamas.
Le célèbre hornythologue Tom Stakhanov, en déplacement dans les caraïbes dans le cadre de ses observations d'oiseaux, notamment de poulettes, tombe amoureux du calypso et plus précisément de ses chanteuses. Il commence doucement à accumuler des disques de musiques caribéennes, ce qui lui permettra de se remémorer le climat
tropical lorsqu'il devra rentrer à Paris.
Revenu de son voyage, le patron d'un fameux bar tiki de la capitale française, Cedrico dit « le manager », lui fait rencontrer les non moins fameux The Loire Valley Calypsos, orchestre nourrissant une passion commune pour la musique exotique. Après quelques soirées arrosées de « chartreuse » ou de « crémant », ils sympathisent et ensemble, se convainquent qu'il est nécessaire de replacer dignement la chanteuse
sur la carte du calypso. « Make calypso female singers great again ».
Ainsi naîtra « Calypso Madame ! », la première compilation de chanteuses de calypso.

1963, Nassau, Bahamas
The well-known Hornythologist Tom Stakhanov, traveling in the West Indies for bird watching, including chicks, fall in love with calypso music and, to be more specific, with the female singers. He starts to dig for caribbean music records to remember the tropical mood when he will have to come back to Paris.
Back home, a night in a famous tiki bar in the french capital, Cedrico AKA « The Manager » introduces him to the no less famous The Loire Valley Calypsos, a band very enthusiatic about exotic music. After drinking « chartreuse » and « crémant », becoming friends, they convice themselves that it is highly important to make calypso female singers great again.
This was born « Calypso Madame ».
