Calypso 2023 T'dad & Tobago | DJ Aaron 868

Calypso music is an essential part of Trinidad Carnival and adds to the excitement and fun of the celebration. However, calypso has been supplanted as the music of carnival and has taken a back seat, way to the back, as it relates to what people want to hear and party with during the festive carnival season. Having said that, Calypso music is not dead, and there are many talented artists choosing Calypso instead of Soca as their contribution to Trinidad and Tobago's carnival culture. Today, we feature some of the upcoming artists and songs that made the cut for Carnival 2023 in Trinidad and Tobago.
