50 years and Spouge

Following the establishment of the first English settlement at Holetown in 1627, Barbados remained a British colony for more than 300 years. Its independence on November 30, 1966 was marked by the raising of the Barbados national flag and playing the new national anthem for the first time

In Bajan culture music plays a vital role. From those early days of independence we picked up spouge as it is developed, melted in its own style, and you will hear in the first half of this musical edition. Slowly spouge will transcend into calypso and soca with songs from Crop Over of different years…

Spouge as a style of Barbadian popular music was created by Jackie Opel in the 1960s. It is primarily a fusion of Jamaican ska with Trinidadian calypso, but is also influenced by a wide variety of musics from the British Isles and United States, include sea shanties, hymns and spirituals. Spouge instrumentation originally consisted of cowbell, bass guitar, trap set and various other electronic and percussion instruments, later augmented by saxophone, trombone and trumpets.[1] Of these, the cowbell and the guitar are widely seen as the most integral part of the instrumentation, and are said to reflect the African origin of much of Barbadian music.
