After no objections and strong support in alt.config, alt.music.carnival was created on Monday 19th June 1995.
alt.music.carnival (Soca, Calypso and Steel Pan)
Anyone who has ever been musically exposed to the sweet
carnival rhythms from the Caribbean knows what this newsgroup is
all about - We're talking hot beats, pulsating riddims and
sweet melodies. We're also talking about traditions of making
songs with witty and sometimes suggestive lyrics. Include in
this the mastery of arranging & playing perhaps the worlds
most innovative instrument, the Steelpan, and you've captured
the essence of this group. Alt.music.carnival is an open
forum to all interested in discussing these musical artforms,
their past, present and future; as well as all other 'carnival'
musics from around the Caribbean.
I can't read it!
Some people may not have access to this newsgroup.
This is due to your site manager, or service provider, not automatically
added this new group to the list of newsgroup your site
subscribes to. All you have to do is ask! As soon as your
Usenet News manager knows that someone has a genuine
interest in a group, it usually isn't a problem for them
to add it straight away. Similiary, if your network provider
doesn't have this group yet, then get them to add it.
Hey, that's what you pay your money for!
These pages are a start and an intention of what I hope to
do. There isn't all that much here, but I'll try and expand
sections when I can. I would welcome anyone who would be interested
in adding their bit to this site. In the meantime, hope you enjoy
Pure Soca & Calypso.
