Calypso Hits album for sale Product Description

Calypso Hits album for sale by Harry Belafonte was released Aug 26, 2008 on the Collectables label. It is interesting to note that the pop-calypso (as opposed to real calypso) boom of the mid-'50s was engineered largely by a charismatic singer born in Harlem and a Juilliard-trained composer from Brooklyn. Both Harry Belafonte, whose mother was from Jamaica, and Irving Burgie, who spent his childhood in a West Indies neighborhood in New York, had musical roots in the Caribbean, certainly, but their version of the islands was largely an imagined one, although imagined so well that their collaborations have actually filtered back into the folk music of the region. Calypso Hits CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs.   ...See Full Description

Meringue hits too
In an attempt to avoid confusion, it must be known that many said calypso are in fact Haitian meringue tunes orchestrated by Talented Belafonte's band leader, Haitian Frantz Casseus. Angelic-o, yellow bird originally choucoune and others are all meringue tunes. The fairwell to Jamaica is also a meringue style. Of course this remark will not affect the prestige of superb Harry Belanfonte. It is only for the record
