Legendary singer Calypso Rose has won the prestigious Victoire de la Musique award for best World Music Album of the Year at the award ceremony this past Friday in Paris, France. The 76-year old singer won for her album Far From Home, produced by Ivan Duran of Stonetree Records. It was recorded in Belize and released internationally by French label, Because Music.

This is the first time a Caribbean artist has won the Victoire award, the French equivalent of the Grammys. It is the most prestigious music award in France with more than 1200 industry professionals voting for the candidates. The award caps off an incredible year for the Queen of Calypso; she received the WOMEX Artist Award in October, performed in front of a television audience of more than a million people, played more than 50 shows in Europe, and her album has been certified Gold in France after selling over 80 000 copies. Calypso Rose is coming back to the Caribbean for a string of shows for Carnival season. Plans are underway for a concert in Belize in September. The album Far From Home is available at music stores and gift shops throughout Belize.
