Calypso is a uniquely Caribbean form of music, most commonly heard during the Carnival Season.

In Dominica, the first Calypso King was The Observer who was crowned in 1959. Calypso has evolved over the years, but there is no doubt that it is a highlight of Carnival Celebrations here in Dominica.

Competitions begin in January and culminate in the Calypso Monarch Competition, usually held on the Saturday before Carnival. The winner becomes the Carnival King and joins Miss Dominica, the Carnival Queen, in the Traditional Costume Parade on Carnival Monday.

See our events calendar for dates.
