Title

The Calypso Archives

Description

The intention of this site is to list discographies for as many calypsonians, calypso songwriters and calypso/soca labels as possible! At a later stage, it is hoped to add some biographical information and possibly a section for steel band recordings of calypsoes, but that can only be done as time permits.

The calypsonians included on the site are essentially those active from around 1956 to present. Artists whose primary recording careers were before this date (such as The Lion, Attilla the Hun etc.) will only have their post-1956 releases included, if any, but artists whose primary recording careers were after this date will have all their known records listed.

By calypsonians, I am really talking about artists who perform in Calypso Tents and/or in calypso competitions in the Caribbean during the Carnival season of their island(s).
