Soca (Sokah)

A style of Caribbean music originating in Trinidad and Tobago. In 1979, Lord Shorty explained this name as "SOKAH" which is a fusion of Afro and Indo Caribbean musical influences; calypso, soul, cadence, and Indian musical instruments. SoKah was later spelled SOCA, means the 'SOul of CAlypso' and is NOT a fusion of Soul and Calypso as many believe.
