Originally the musical output of Trinidad and Tobago — Calypso, steel band music, and soca — is centered around the carnival season that begins shortly after Christmas and culminates with Carnival Tuesday, the day before the Catholic feast of Ash Wednesday.
Calypso sprang from the Carnival of Trinidad around the beginning of the 20th century.
Recordings of calypso (whose more uptempo contemporary form is called "soca," from the words "soul" and "calypso") feature a fairly standard formula of programmed drums and rhythm section, calypso guitar, occasional lead or tenor pans (steel drums), horns, and a syncopated bass guitar that gives the music its true soul.

 Habits of Waste - Calypso 101 - a review of calypso music in Trinidad and Tobago
Calypso rhythms, as an identifiable music genre in Trinidad and Tobago, can be traced to the arrival of the first African slaves, brought to work on the sugar plantations at the end of the 19th century.
Many of these early calypsos, led by colorful individuals called griots, were sung in a French-Creole dialect called patois (a reflection of the multi-colonial heritage of the island of Trinidad and Tobago, colonized by Spain, France, and Britain), often accompanied by the traditional African drums and chorus.
The original bamboo structures, which characterized traditional calypso tents built in the 1930s and 1940s, have been replaced by more grandiose structures, with names aptly reflecting their physical eminence, and perhaps, the stature of the performers they accommodate: Calypso Revue, Calypso Spektakula, Kaiso House, Kaiso Showkase, The Lion’s Den.
