The calypso has African roots in terms of music, structure, and function. Its traditions of improvised songs of self-praise and scorn remains in the art form as does the storytelling aspect of the genre.
Many years ago, I saw a Griot, an African storyteller perform with a shekere (a gourd instrument)- that experience remains with me. Griots in West Africa used them in storytelling. I thought it appropriate to pair the shekere and the calypsonian as griot, and storyteller
