Trinidad Blue Basin is a traditional calypso tune celebrating the beauty of the island of Trinidad. The island features such breathtaking scenery as the Blue Basin Falls which includes a waterfall and surrounding pool in the Diego Martin river area located in northwest Trinidad. The Blue Basin Falls are approximately nine miles from the heart and soul of steel drumming and the calypso beat in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
" . . . perfect for the very young beginner on pan or the gig band needing a quick filler."
