Calypsociation Steelband has released their second album, ‘Pan People,’ after more than two years of rehearsals and a debut album, Made it, dedicated to the innovators of the steeldrum, the national instrument of Trinidad & Tobago.
With this new recording, Calypsociation reaffirms its identity as it continues to surprise.
Mathieu Borgne and Laurent Lalsingué both offer a set of unique compositions with punchy arrangements, combining classic French songs (La Javanaise, Serge Gainsbourg), Trinidadian music (Pan in Harmony, Aldwin Roberts), Jazz music (Black Market, Joe Zawinul), and pop (Human Nature, Michael Jackson).
This is a concert not to be missed under any circumstances.
Calypsociation was created June 8 1993 by Guillaume Kervel, Barthélémy Fougea and Emmanuel Masselot - the founding fathers. The association aims to develop cultural exchanges between France and Trinidad and Tobago, and to promote the practice of the steel drum in France through introductory and year-round courses for adults and children and concerts as well.
