Preview: Calypso Rose @ Jazz Café (London, 14th November 2016)


Calypso Rose is a calypsonian in the true sense of the word. Actually, if that word still has a sense, part of the credit goes to her. She started composing and playing calypso when she was 15, when calypso was arguably at its popularity peak and spreading its messages all over the world. Sixty years later, she has become a game-changer for the Caribbean music style and still not exhausted her artistic flair.

In fact, after having performed and received the Artist Award at Womex 2016, she heads for London to play an unmissable gig at the Jazz Café on the 14th of November, where she will surely play tunes from her brand-new album, Far From Home.

The one and only Calypso Queen is still pushing forward, fighting and sparing no effort for her fans… long life to the Queen, and don’t “leave her alone”!

Review: Womex 2016 (Santiago de Compostela, Spain – 19th to 23rd October 2016)

Womex is something more than an exhibition: it’s more intense and bonding. That’s probably why, for the second time in the last three years, it happened in Santiago de Compostela. More than 2000 “peregrinos de la musica” (music pilgrims), as Paul Bräuer (Piranha’s Director of Communications) aptly defined them, gathered…
