SOCA simply means the (So)ul of (Ca)lypso, however the name has nothing to do with the fusion of American Soul music and Calypso, as Soca is rhythmically a fusion of African/Calypso and East Indian rhythms. Soca's history is multi-faceted. Lord Shorty, its inventor, initially spelled his musical hybrid as 'sokah'. "I never spelt it s-o-c-a. It was s-o-k-a-h to reflect the East Indian influence." The s-o-c-a spelling quickly became the popular spelling after a journalist, Ivor Ferreira, interviewed Shorty for an article that was published during the 1976 Trinidad Carnival season. The article was titled "Shorty is Doing Soca" and so s-o-c-a quickly became the accepted spelling for this new modern style of Calypso music.
