Both of today’s songs are from The Rough Guide to Calypso Gold. When it gets colder, I figure calypso will whisk us off to the islands and to cabanas and drinks with small umbrellas.

Coffee, Coffee: Attila the Hun

August 16, 2010

"Attila the Hun ( Raymond Quevedo) began singing in 1911 and was at his most prominent in the 1930s and 1940s. He was one of the pioneers in spreading awareness of calypso beyond its birthplace in Trinidad and Tobago. Together with the Roaring Lion (Rafael de Leon) he brought calypso to the United States for the first time in 1934."
