Nature Sounds: Seen and Heard at Dominica Calypso Monarch

Words and Photos by Erin MacLeod—

Watching the Calypso Monarch competition in Roseau, Dominica, I couldn’t help but think that the antics of a Skerrit Bwoy–what with the role-playing and the dramatics, the costumes and the lewdness–have more to do with carnival and calypso than soundsystems and dancehall. If you don’t believe me, check his Twitter–the man otherwise known as Major Lazer’s hype man may be “saved via Christ,” but he was “born to Calypso.”
