Signal Hill’s Socalypso Soca, Calypso Through the Years
Date Published: Jan 9th, 2018
Sometimes it is easy to forget that Trinidad and Tobago has a compilation of music that stands tall as any other type of music in the world.
The Signal Hill Alumni Show Choir’s SocaLypso gave a reminder at a show, held at Queen’s Hall on January 7. The event began promptly at 5.30 pm and was held under the patronage of Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly.
From the classics such as David Rudder’s Bacchanal Lady to recent hits like Bunji Garlin’s Differentology, Socalypso took each song or medley and put a new arrangement to it. Dubbed as a “pre-Carnival show choir and pan experience,” it took the some of the most popular soca and calypsoes and renewed them in “four, five and six part harmonies.”
