Various - Barbados Calypso & Reggae Festival album FLAC

In modern Barbados, popular styles include calypso, spouge, contemporary folk and world music  . The original crop over festival celebrated the end of the sugarcane harvest. These festivals were held in the great house of the plantations, and included both slaves and plantation managers. Celebrations included drinking competitions, feasting, song and dance, and climbing a greased pole.

It's not surprising that a reggae festival would succeed on an island outside of its Jamaica birthplace, considering the music's vast popularity throughout the Caribbean. Now in its 15th year, The Barbados Reggae Festival presents Jamaica's biggest acts alongside local Barbadian talents.
