CALYPSO ROSE (TRINIDAD & TOBAGO)
Mercredi 12 juillet à 21h30
She is the undisputed queen of the calypso for half a century, and has won this February 10th, a French « Victoire de la Musique » award with Far From Home, an album with three tracks signed by a certain Manu Chao! A prize she dedicates to her great-grandmother, a slave from French Guinea...
As legendary as the calypso, the popular Carribean Carnival music, this seven-year-old superstar enjoys an international recognition which recalls the formidable musical adventure of Cesaria Evora or Compay Segundo. With a voice full of vitality, she sings a music that calls for dance and denounces social injustices with an equally alert political conscience. Carried along by the warm rhythms of her island, this enchanting artist distills a joie de vivre... irresistible!
