Living on the island for more than ten years, I can’t remember a time when calypso was not a part of my story. Spending my first Christmas away from Montserrat was revealing. I didn’t recognize how much I much I had grown to enjoy it as part of my Christmas experience. I have provided vocals for studio sessions, the competitions, working with the best of the best, I have experienced calypso from multiple sides. With 60 years on the horizon, I thought it would a great time to explore Montserrat’s calypso history and why I had grown to love it so much.

Calypso, Love Nia is a conversation with a few of my favorite calypsonians, practitioners and lovers of the art form to understand Montserrat’s calypso story over the last 60 years.
