El-Dabh-Egyptian Calypso (Score only)-Steel drum ensemble - Product Information

When composing Egyptian Calypso, Halim El-Dabh felt a connection between the music of his childhood and that of Trinidad and Tobago. His imagination took him from Egypt to the Andalusian culture of Morocco and Spain, and the Arab troubadors of medevial times whose travels created a cross-pollination of music throughout Europe. From there, his imagination jumped the ocean to Trinidad and Tobago where the music that had been cared for by the troubadours


landed with the French colonists. With the arrival of the British, yet another layer of music was added to the culture of the islands. Egyptian Calypso is about the almost magical possibility of music. The ability of music to travel the world, to combine with other styles, and to create sounds and ideas that, just before the meeting, seemed beyond imagination.
