Kobo Town Brings a Fresh Take on that Old Calypso Sound

Kobo Town re-introduces Calypso to a contemporary audience with their new album Jumbie in the Jukebox, out today on Cumbancha Records.  Light and flavorful like all good calypso, Kobo Town has something fresh going on.  Updating the sound with some Latin flavor, reggae skanking, and dynamic percussion, Kobo Town is something new and different to catch your ears.  Just like Trench Town in Jamaica, Kobo Town is a reference to the neighborhood in which Calypso was born.  From Kobo Town to the rest of the world, this album puts calypso back on the map.  Dig a free track from the album below.
