Calypso is not an exclusively Trinidadian genre. In the Calypso tents all over the islands, champions and queens are crowned who come from barbados, St. Lucia, Nevis, and many other islands. To say "that's not Calypso because it's not from Trinidad" is like saying "that's not bluegrass because it's not from Kentucky."
