1963, Nassau, Bahamas 
The well-known hornythologist Tom Stakhanov, traveling in the West Indies for bird watching, including chicks, fall in love with calypso music and, to be more specific, with the female singers. He starts to dig for Caribbean records to remind himself the tropical mood when he will be back in Paris. One night, back home in a famous tiki bar in the French capital, Cedrico AKA « The Manager » introduces him to the no less famous The Loire Valley Calypsos, a band very enthusiatic about exotic music. After drinking « chartreuse » and « crémant », and becoming friends, they convice themselves that it is highly important to "Make calypso female singers great again". This was born « Calypso Madame ».
