When: Sat., Oct. 8 2016
For the first concert of the second season of the Around the World Music Series, The Five Islands, an acoustic quintet dedicated to the performance of early calypso music from the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, will perform. The Five Islands' repertoire consists primarily of classic instrumental calypsos by pioneering Trinidadian composer and recording artist Lionel Belasco, who created an infectious and sophisticated new style of dance music. Tonight’s performance will also include a few medleys from the first known recordings of Lovey's Trinidad String Band. The concert takes place at 8 at the North Water Street Gallery in Kent. A $10 donation is requested. A meet-and-greet featuring light food and drinks precedes the concert.
