See also Trinidad and Tobago and Tobago. Half of the twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Second largest of the Commonwealth Caribbean islands (behind Jamaica). The most southernmost of the Caribbean islands (although Guyana, a mainland country in South America, is the southernmost of countries considered Caribbean). Musically, Trinidad and Tobago is the birthplace and headquarters of calypso and soca music and their variant genres; the steel pan (the official instrument of the Caribbean, and the only instrument invented in the 20th century, besides, arguably, the turntable); the limbo dance; the home of the largest, most reknowned of all the Caribbean Carnivals; and the prime exponent of masquerade, or 'mas.
Calypso, soca, and the steel pan were born and bred in Trinidad and Tobago, and are now produced by countless other countries.
