Founded by Trinidadian-Canadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town is named after the historic neighborhood in Port-of-Spain where calypso was born. Kobo Town takes the intricate wordplay of classic Caribbean music and runs it through a 21st Century filter. In the world of Kobo Town calypso, roots reggae, and acoustic instrumentation meet innovative production techniques, social commentary and indie rock attitude.

Kobo Town has been compared to everyone from The Specials to Tom Waits to Harry Belafonte to Rebirth Brass Band. Their recently-released Cumbancha album Jumbie in the Jukebox has received accolades from the media and the public.
