Today, Trinidadians everywhere will be celebrating 50 years of Independence from British rule and we here at Bnovamusic, felt it would befitting to present something to commemorate this. The song featured today is Lady Hummingbird’s “teenage bossa nova girl.” This rare 60’s record combines calypso, a form of music derived from Trinidad, with bossa nova. The track manages to blends the two distinct music forms seamlessly. Featuring a riveting riff and lively vocals, over a standard bossa nova drum pattern and guitar section, the song is a true treasure. Happy birthday Trinidad and Tobago.
