Product Description

Study In High Fidelity Sound-Trinidad Steel Band-SKA LP

A Study In High Fidelity Sound by

Trinidad Steel Band

Genre: Reggae / Ska
Format: NEW LP 180 gr REISSUE

Title: A Study In High Fidelity Sound
Artist: Trinidad Steel Band
Label: Dagored

Originally released on Audio Fidelity in 1956, this 12 track album outlines an interesting phenomenon which developed in Trinidad during the last years of British colonization.

Prevented from using skin drums - banned by the British in an attempt to suppress African tribal customs - Trinidadians began using steel tubes and sticks to create a new form of urban sound which, like the musical expression of many other long colonized countries, brought together protest and entertainment.

Many of the tunes reinterpreted here are of African and Spanish heritage, although French Creole and Indian influences - East Indians relocated here by the shortage of slaves after the 1833 abolition - are also present, giving the listener the chance to enjoy an entirely unique piece of street art and history.
