About Soca Music

Soca is a genre of music that originated within a marginalized subculture in Trinidad and Tobago in the early 1970s, and developed into a range of styles by the 1980s and later. Soca was initially developed by Lord Shorty in the early 1970s in an effort to revive traditional calypso, the popularity of which had been flagging among younger generations in Trinidad by the start of the 1970s due to the rise in popularity of reggae from Jamaica and soul and funk from USA. Soca is an offshoot of kaiso/calypso, with influences from chutney, cadence, funk and soul.

Soca has evolved since the 1990s primarily through musicians from various Anglophone Caribbean countries including Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Grenada, and Saint Lucia.
