CALYPSO: a Brief History by Philip W. Scher. Traditionally accompanied by acoustic music, Calypso increasingly came to incorporate electronic instrumentation and the influence of North-American musical styles such as rhythm and blues and soul. Alongside Black Power came the women’s liberation movement and increasing (though still small) numbers of women singers. The result was a new musical hybrid that he called solka. With his 1974 album Endless Vibrations and the single Shanti Om, Shorty sparked a revolution in Caribbean music.
