Soca is a style of caribbean music originating in Trinidad And Tobago. The Godfather of Soca was a Trinidadian man named Garfield Blackman who rose to fame as Lord Shorty with his 1963 hit "Cloak and Dagger" and took on the name Ras Shorty. He started out writing songs and performing in the calypso genre A prolific musician, composer and innovator, Shorty experimented with fusing calypso and elements of indo-caribbean music for nearly a decade before unleashing "the soul of calypso,"...soca music. Shorty added Indian instruments, including the dholak, tabla and dhantal. In the 1970s, he began experimenting with calypso by blending it with American "soul music" and local chutney rhythm, as evident in his smash hit "Sweet Music" the forerunner to Soca music. Soca became very popular with Trinidad And Tobago carnival and replaced the steelband music. For many parades Soca has grown since its inception to incorporate elements of disco, rap, reggae, zouk, and dance music genres, and continues to blend in contemporary music styles and trends.
