The Caribbean Calypso Club is an absolute must,
not only for fans of Calypso and Soca, but for
everyone who wants to bring in the new year
with hot West Indies rhythms. This impressive
production gathers together some of the
Caribbean‘s best and brightest stars, gathered
for the first time together on stage in Europe.
Anderson “Blood“ Armstrong, Red Plastic Bag,
Charles D. Lewis and many other internationally
known stars will demonstrate their Caribbean
magic. Berlin based calypso band Lord Mouse and
the Kalypso Katz, who have been waving the
calypso flag for close to a decade, will mix up
with them to shake the house together.

Participating Artists:

Anderson Armstrong (Barbados)
Stedson Wiltshire (Barbados)
Wayne Willock (Barbados)
Charles D. Lewis (Barbados)
Nicholas Brancker (Barbados)
Lennon Prospere (St. Lucia)
Oronde Charles (St. Vincent & the Grenadines)
Sherwin Brice (St. Lucia)
Calvin Esprit (Dominica)

Lord Mouse & The Kalypso Katz (U.S.A., Russia, England, Australia, Poland, France, Italy, Germany)

Local DJ heros Soca Twins will be spinning hot,
tropical wax with Lord Mouse until the early
hours.

This event and the integrated capacity building
workshop are part of an international cultural
exchange project called "Calypso in Berlin"
funded by The Copyright Society of Composers,
Authors and Publishers Incorporated (COSCAP)
and the Eastern Caribbean Collective
Organisation for Music Rights (ECCO) Inc.
through the funding from the Caribbean Export
Development Agency under the 10th EDF programme
and with additional support from the Barbados
Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC).

The project seeks to take advantage of
the EU-Cariforum Economic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) and Cultural Protocol to enter new
markets and build collaborative ties.
Importantly, it will also address cultural
diversity, heritage as well as development of
the cultural economy.

It is the first of its kind and is already
generating tremendous excitement at the
opportunities it will facilitate. We believe if
it is successful in its implementation it
augers well for future editions and deeper
cultural exchanges.

This Project was created by a joint initiative
of COSPCAP, ECCO, Lord Mouse & The Kalypso Katz
(represented by Calypsonian GbR) and Piranha
Kultur.

Funding provided by the 10th EDF Regional
Private Sector Development Programme Direct
Assistance Grant Scheme. The views expressed in
this project “Calypso in Berlin” are those of
