Crop-Over through art
There is something exciting about the exhibition which features trophies, costumes worn by calypsonians, their musical instruments, records and original sheet music of calypsos – “which have been loaned for the exhibition by some of Barbados’ leading calypsonians”. There is also “a variety of calypsos” for you to hear as you explore what makes a calypso a calypso.
It is more than a look back at where the art form has come from. There is a plethora of information on early calypsonians, The MerryMen, Gabby, Froggy, and the state on calypso today.
The exhibition will end on September 28. (DS)
