About Calypso Rose

Rose has won more national and international awards than any other calypsonian save for Mighty Sparrow and Kitch. The National Calypso King Competition had to be changed in name to the National Calypso Monarchy Competition as a result of her being the first female to ever take the crown (in 1978). Her material is often feminist in nature, and the music is much in the style of Antigua's Swallow ... heavy on the cowbell and horn section. It is no exaggeration to say that every album by Rose is worth hearing. ~ Gene Scaramuzzo
