Real Old Guyana Calypso – Bill Rogers

Here are three really vintage Guyanese calypso recordings by Bill Rogers,(Real name Augustus Hinds), a Guyanese singer from the 1930’s and 1940’s. This type of music was called “Shanto”. Have a listen and a laugh at the lyrics as they scrool down as the music is played.   Enjoy!!


B.G.(which stood for British Guiana in Bill Rogers’ time )was probably his most popular song. It was re-made by other artistes and was also used in commercial jingles.

    The original recording sung by Bill Rogers is on YouTube along with many more oldies from the late 1940s to 1950s. If you remember BG Bhagi, Weed Song and 15 Cent sweetheart. There is a lot of good stuff on you tube. Sit back and enjoy.
