Calypso Rose

  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • Carnival calypso

At the age of 75, Rose is still overturning with fracas the codes of calypso. She has become a reference in a world that used to be exclusively the reserve of men. With her joyful, catchy Caribbean musical parade, in line with the tradition of Carnival that is so dear to the people of Trinidad and Tobago, she sends dark thoughts and sad passions packing. Petulant, tonic, vehement, spirited, never tired, the diva of the soca has released Far From Home, which must be her 20th album, and on which a certain Manu Chao makes a guest appearance. Rebellious, a little impish, she seduces her audience with a good dose of humour. A ray of sunshine that will melt the hearts of the most recalcitrant!
