The Violin and the Musical Folk Traditions of Trinidad and Tobago. 2012 marks the Centennial Anniversary of the first ever recording of Calypso music. As such, the music is very different to the jazzy sounds of earlier calypso. It is in this era (1944) that my calypso-based violinist Stanley Roach was born. Roach was the violinist for Kaiso 2: Happy Days, with Phil Dobson’s band and for the recording for which he is best known, Calypsonian Shadow’s ‘De Hardest Hard’. However, Mr Roach has and always will prefer classical music and so is dedicating the rest of his days to that form, with the hope to produce an album of some challenging works. This traditional folk music from Tobago, also has its roots in our colonial times. The handheld goat skin frame drums, called the cutter, roller and boum, are accompanied typically by the triangle and violin, the mouth organ (See Figure 7).

The music of Trinidad and Tobago is best known for its calypso music, soca music and steelpan. Calypso's internationally noted performances in the 1950s from native artists such as Lord Melody, Lord Kitchener and Mighty Sparrow. The art form was most popularised at that time by Harry Belafonte

Part of Delos's 'Caribbean Carnival Series' is this lively collection of steelband traditions from Trinidad and Tobago alone, STEELBANDS OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO: unusual among the wealth of group-specific recordings or those which embrace the entire Caribbean. Surprise: there are no liner notes of band history - but a fine essay on how to build a steel pan drum.

Trinidad and Tobago Carnival has been called the greatest show on earth, with its costumes, pageantry, music and seemingly endless fetes leading up to the main event - the all-day street parades on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Like most carnivals around the world, the twin island version often makes headlines for its beautiful and scantily clad women, but the festival is much more than meets the eye.
