Episode 20: Conversations with Charlie – Rawlston “Charlie” Charles is the most significant pioneer in the recording and wider distribution of soca music and calypso music in the US and the World via his Charlie’s Records and his studio in Brooklyn from the 1970s onwards. His place in the history of the music’s proliferation is secure. “Charlie” was back in Trinidad and Tobago to premiere his documentary at CARIFESTA XIV and he chatted with Laura and Nigel in two interviews.
