Product Notes

The calypso music that was popularized in the '50s was made exclusively by men for a long time, but if there is one queen of the style, it is Calypso Rose. Life hasn't always been easy for the Tobagonian diva, and while she praises a discourse of peace, she remains engaged, condemning social unfairness and the unjust status of women. This all is joyfully sung against a musical background of pure calypso, ska, and soca. After a long career during which she was written more than 800 songs, the dynamic singer, 76 years old at the time of this release, returns with Far From Home, produced by Ivan Duran and featuring the guitar and voice of Manu Chao on three tracks. Two 10"s in gatefold sleeve with CD.
