Those with an ear for good storytelling and word play will enjoy Kobo’s 21st-century take on Trinidadian calypso. They’re fronted by white Trinidadian singer/songwriter Drew Gonsalves, whose lyrical flow often has a political dimension. He’s accompanied by a punchy little brass section, and clearly listens to plenty of Jamaican music.
