Abstract

This session features performances by a group of musicians performing traditional Spanish-Trinidadian repertoire, including paseos and calypsos. Of this group, Alan Lomax writes “[they are] the most outstanding in Trinidad for authentic Spanish-type music” (field log). In many of the performances, the melody is played on the violin and flute — for the most part in unison — while the cuatro provides strong rhythmic support throughout.
