Calypso Rose sure has style and zeal, and her 2016 album, Far From Home, goes to prove it. Much loved and made with the support and blessing of Manu Chao, Far From Home was well worthy of the praise and its victory at the Victoires de la Musique French music awards. And now she’s back with a new album, So, Calypso! For her new album, with a back catalogue of more than 800 songs and 22 albums, the 78-year-old Tobagonian diva decided to go back to the start, and re-record a number of her career defining numbers and cover songs from those artists which have inspired and continue to inspire her, like Nat King Cole, Aretha Franklin, The Melodians and Angélique Kidjo. Common to all the covers, be they from American, Jamaican and African artists, is they all share their sentiment with Calypso Rose’s social and musical values. Features & reviews running in Financial Times, The Observer, Echoes, Economist, Songlines, FRoots, Q, Mojo, Uncut. Formats: Digipack CD with 18 page poster booklet , 1 CD & Double 10’’ LP sized gatefold (2 black vinyls, album splitted on two 10’’) featuring CD
