    I read somewhere there that calypso was the original music to Trinidad, then the indian influence lead to soca. Kind of like a 'nuum of sorts. I think it was from one of the links from this thread. Then there's soca + reggae giving rise to chutney (and chutney needs its own thread).

    cool thread. still not so sure what the link between the middle east (well, specifically anatolian rhythms) and dancehall is. Jungle rhythms don't sound west african for instance they sound far more egyptian/turkish. obviously a lot of this is just the way you chop a funk break but there's definitely some osmosis or indirect link there... And most turkish folk rhythms are basically d-hall. where the down hits on the 1-3.

    Barty displaying anything but scorn for another person's counting is unprecedented. Thirdform should print that out in gold, frame it and hang it in his office as a kind of certificate of achievement
