Caribbean Carnival, songs of the West Indies.

7134 Caribbean Carnival - Burgie/Lessac, 7134 Caribbean Carnival - Burgie/Lessac

13 calypso songs with bright illustrations, some familiar, some arrangements of traditional songs, and 4 written by the author. Interesting afterword by Rosa Guy, on the African origins of calypso and it's spread to the New World in the 16th century. Simple piano accompaniments and chords. Unfortunately, this is such a tight book we cannot photograph the bright illustrations filled with flowers and trees.
