In today's society, all the fuss is about Soca music. Don't get me wrong, I love Soca music. After all, this blog's name is Sokah2Soca. Today we are featuring a mixtape by DJ Del. She loves Calypso music, and for those 'not in the know' there was a time when all you got for carnival was Calypso. So today we pay tribute to the music that started it all, Calypso, and, as you will come to realize, Calypso 2 Sweet!

So, on Sunday afternoon, we plan to have a nice time, and we hope that this mixtape and music selection will inspire you to play more Calypso music. There is a specific time and place for everything, and we encourage you to incorporate calypso music into your home gatherings and observe the results. You will see people chipping to the music, and the wiser, older heads actually engaging each other and dancing, not whining to the music, as is the norm for Soca. 

We don't know much about Dj Del, but it appears that, judging from her contact number, she is based in Trinidad. Now about the mixtape: Calypso 2 Sweet is a mixtape by DJ Del that honors the nostalgic sounds of vintage calypso music. Regardless of your generational affiliation, this compilation honors the classic songs that have influenced our music memories. Get the mix from DJ Del's website and lose yourself in the nostalgic rhythms of calypso music.

We love our culture, and we love Soca music, but please show some respect to the music that Soca came from. If you don't vibe to this mix, then you are lacking an invaluable Caribbean music gene. Long live Calypso music, and yes, Kaiso too—damn sweet! Enjoy...
