Matouk’s Calypso Hot Sauce has a truly unique flavour which is inspired by the rhythm of Caribbean music. Calypso rhythms can be traced back to the arrival of the first African slaves brought to work in the sugar plantations of Trinidad.
Forbidden to talk to each other, and robbed of all links to family and home, the African slaves began to sing songs. They used calypso, which can be traced back to West African kaiso, as a means of communication and to mock the slave masters. These songs helped to unite the slaves and so ingrained a rich culture and tradition among the people of the Caribbean.
