A presentation on the history of calypso music and a performance will feature three giants from that music scene Tuesday afternoon at Marieb Hall on FGCU Campus. This afternoon on WGCU, we’ll get to talk with the artists in our studio. They’re called Monarchs- a title given once a year to the winning performer on Dimanche Gras night. Karene Ashce, won in 2011 at the young age of 26. Devon Seale won the title in 2016 while wearing some interesting headgear. And Duane O’Connor was crowned Monarch of Calypso in 2012.
All three will be on Gulf Coast Live today to talk about their journey through Calypso and how this genre represents Trinidad and Tobago.
