Calypso

Please click image to view larger version.

Calypso is a style of music that developed the Caribbean around 100 years ago out of African tradition. This is one way of playing the style on the drum kit. Right hand on cow bell (or bell of ride), kick drum four on the floor and the left hand alternating between snare cross stick and floor tom. Enjoy!
