MusicTT, in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade and Industry and TUCO, hosted The Business of Calypso Workshop featuring Calypso Rose. This art form is the intellectual property of Trinidad and Tobago, and therefore its potential revenue stream should not remain untapped whether it be through music, creativity, culture or tourism. The workshop took place on Friday 17th February, 2017 at the NAPA Restaurant, Port of Spain.
Participants in this workshop learnt from Calypso Rose who shared her wealth of knowledge on Trinidad and Tobago’s cultural music and how it could be used to carry one’s musical career internationally. There were also several panel discussions on the following topics:
- Story & History of Calypso Rose
- Essentials in Composing Calypso – Then and Now
- Calypso Music Production
- Music Business/Finance/Marketing
Guardian Media Limited was MusicTT’s official media partner for this workshop.
