Tune #9: Calypso


Let it go on record that I have never attended a carnival, I have no relations to the tropics of the Caribbean – home of the calypso (originated from Tobago and Trinidad) – and I have never been into that kind of thing. Yet here we are.

My main motivation here was “music you can dance to,” which I have never really attempted, however, when it comes the dance, I find nothing as captivating as latin. Hence, the dive into the tropics with a very basic clave rhythm underneath a 8-beat.

And yes, I may be mixing up quite a bit under the “latin” umbrella here and from the bottom of my Scandinavian heart, I do apologise if I offended.
