Calypso, Soca and the Steel Drum: The music of Trinidad

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:22 pm on 20 November 2018

In this week's music feature, we're off to the Carribean - Trinidad, to be precise: the home of calypso and soca and the birthplace of the steel drum.

AUT musicologist Jared Mackley-Crump takes us through the music of Trinidan and shows us that there's more to calypso than you might think.
