This list is cool, but you forgot to list Barbarito Diez and a couple prolific Bolero artists.

no mighty sparrow, kassav and lord kitchener etc? who came up with that list. There are way more islands in the caribbean than those 3.

Okkkkaaayyyy... why no Kassav', Emeline Michel, Gloria Estefan, Olga Tanon, Milly Quezada, Alison Hinds, Calypso Rose, Macria Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Rita Marley, Olga Guillot, Billy Ocean... I see plenty of men but not too many women why is that? And I agree there are WAY more islands than just those three. And many more different styles of music.
