    Question Need Feedback: Possible Thesis Topic

    Hi all, just wanted some feedback on the feasibility of this topic for my senior thesis:

    I want to basically study the evolution of Calypso music into Soca music and pose the question of whether Calypso is a dying art form due to the emergence of Soca and the many forms of Soca (Ragga, Chutney etc.) or whether it will always be in existence because it serves as the backbone for these forms.

    Something along those lines...I'm really still in the brainstorming process.

    Please I just want some constructive feedback. Thank you.

    You should try to speak to different artist or interview them to get there feedback on this topic! If I find anything I would definitely hit you w. some possible feedback! But, work w. that!

    sounds like a great topic. go to calypsodreams.com and call or email Geoffrey Dunn. He may have some footage to get you started....over 60 hrs of taped interviews.

    It is a sound basis for a thesis....and it is not only affects soca and calypso...but other students of other cultures will be able to relate to your thesis because every artform of every culture as undergone some sort of transformation by the younger generations....would luv to read final copy
