This drama trilogy shows the story of the Calypso art form over four decades of social and artistic change, 1930-1970. Sing de Chorus, the first in the series, recreates conditions and conflicts that made the 1930s the classical era of the Calypso and placed the art on the international stage. Ah Wanna Fall is built around the Absurdist genius of Spoiler, who characterized the transitions of post-war Trinidad. Ten to One the series with the triumphant rise of Sparrow in his struggle for social respect for the art and its performers. In all some 132 songs are included in the text, each song itself offering a window to the life of the period through the eyes of Trinidad's popular commentators entertainers the Calypsonians.
