Vintage Caribbean Calypso by David Bereaux

CAT BRAIN – sung by David Bereaux

Spoiler’s CAT BRAIN.   For the past 11 years I’ve told story at the GIMISTORY FESTIVAL on the beaches of the Cayman Islands. Climaxing each of the eight night’s program is the masterly storytelling of DAVID BEREAUX and FRIENDS. They tell, in song, the vintage calypso stories (‘ol time kaiso) that are unsurpassed for creativty, imagination, wit and, very often, wisdom; and may be the Caribbean’s true true traditional folk tales.  – Ken Corsbie  caribvoies – http://www.youtube.com/user/caribvoies

The vintage calypsoes of the 50’s-70’s (ol’ time kaiso) were creative, witty, politically and socially incorrect, and eminently performable. DAVID BEREAUX is the master at the performance, interpretation, dramatics of those narratives. He is the modern Caribbean Calypso Storyteller.  I’m priviliged to have experienced his remarkable telling at the eleven annual GIMISTORY FESTIVALS in the Cayman Islands.  – Ken Corsbie –
