Roy Cape: A Life on the Calypso and Soca Bandstand

Music Department faculty, ethnomusicologist Professor Jocelyne Guilbault on her book, Roy Cape: A Life on the Calypso and Soca Bandstand:

“This book about and with Trinidadian saxophonist and bandleader Roy Cape is a study about the making of reputation and circulation, and about the meaning of labor and work ethics. Yet, it is not just about music as a labor of love. Distinct from most biographies in popular music studies, it is also an experiment in storytelling, mixing methods and styles of biography, autobiography, and visual and dialogic writing.”
