Calypso Still Swaying Hips & Minds in BVI

Calypso is a type of music said to be a voice for the voiceless and a ground to throw punches in a fun way especially at politicians.

Calypso has a strong musical presence in the British Virgin Islands. Apart from its prevalence on the airwaves, residents look forward to the calypso competitions at Easter on Virgin Gorda and during the Emancipation festival on Tortola.

The subjects of calypso lyrics, usually witty and satirical, are local and topical events of political and social import, and the tone is one of allusion, mockery, and double entendre. And though here in the BVI some calypsonians tread lightly, others go full on.

See video

Those were some of the political and social punches capsuled in the 2017 edition of the calypso monarch contest at the Virgin Gorda Golden Jubilee Easter Festival.
