The CD included in the LP features the 12 tracks in the same order Short info: The Calypso is a musical genre that was popularised in the 50’s and exclusively made by men for a long time. But if there is one queen of this movement, it is Calypso Rose. Life hasn’t always been easy for the Caribbean Diva and she willingly praises a discourse of peace, but engaged, condemning social unfairness and the actual status of women. This all is joyfully sung against a musical background of pure Calypso, Ska, soca or aga. After a long career of more than 800 songs composed, the dynamic 75 years-old woman is coming back with a new album “Far From Home", determined to conquer the hearts of people she hasn’t yet. Manu Chao, who discovered this “living legend of Calypso", has provided his guitar and voice on 3 of this LP’s tracks, produced by Ivan Duran. Many festivals are scheduled for this summer and the media have already given Calypso Rose a warm welcome, on a par with the generous performances she delivers on stage. The album will be available on June 3rd, right on time for the summer. Make sure the Diva accompanies you throughout the holidays !
