Diaspora Paradise Calypso WAV
Calypso is one of the longest-standing genres in the Caribbean. Its festive sound originating in Trinidad and Tobago was made famous by The Mighty Sparrow, whose recordings featured instruments ranging from drums and percussion to horns and synths. The genre is most notably a precursor to soca, ad an influencer of many other genres in the Caribbean like kompa, cadence, ska, and reggae. Paradise features 15 melodic loops and 15 drum loops of authentic calypso played by musicians Matthew Smythe and Bendji Allonce, mixed by Andrew Miller. We feature vintage synthesizers to mimic the Mighty Sparrow sound of the ’80s, and real horns to bring each loop to life. There’s also a gang of drum and melodic one-shots to supplement the loops. Take a trip to paradise!
