Kaiso Street Collective is a new ensemble (nonet) led by JUNO-Nominated, Trinidadian-born saxophonist and composer Jesse Ryan, that is dedicated to presenting fresh arrangements of music from the golden age of calypso, re-imagined through the lens of modern jazz. The ensemble will premiere new arrangements of some of his late grandfather, Clifton Ryan’s (aka The Mighty Bomber) calypsos as well as calypsos from The Mighty Spoiler, who was one of Bomber’s mentors and biggest influences. Though the cultural contributions of Caribbean icons to Black history have been seen and celebrated in part, their stories are often left out of the global narrative. This project seeks to echo the idea that CALYPSO HISTORY IS BLACK HISTORY!
