Twenty Vie to be Calypso Queen

In it's 32nd national finals, the National Calypso Queen Competition is one to look forward to. Never your typical 'wine an jam' session but songs with meaning behind the words and spirit behind the melody. Calypso is a genre we cannot let die off no matter what new version comes along. It is the foundation of the genre on our twin island, the true expression of our people,- 'by calypso, our stories are told'. The names of the songs alone will show you that.
