Lovey's String Band

Lovey's String Band were a Trinidadian musical group. They are known primarily for having been the earliest known calypso group to have ever recorded.

The band did a recording session in New York City in 1912, five years before the first jazz recordings, and these instrumental recordings document a style of "hot" music in fashion in the Caribbean around that time. This recording was selected for preservation in 2002 by the National Recording Preservation Board of the Library of Congress.
